24/11/04 - Soya oil prices are likely to appreciate in Jan/March 2005, dueto seasonally low production and a decline in world stocks. An importantprice-determining factor will be the development of Chinese soya oilpurchases. Reduced Chinese purchases in recent months and the sharpdecline in Argentine and Brazilian soya oil exports to China in Sept/Nov2004 were major bearish factors for soybean oil. As we point out below,the decline in Chinese soya oil imports during Oct/Dec 2004 will lead to apronounced reduction of Chinese stocks, resulting in higher domesticprices as well as pent-up demand and higher soya oil imports in Jan/March2005 and subsequent months. (For more details see below.) The US dollarweakened further yesterday and fell to a new 9-year low against majorcurrencies. The Euro rallied to a record high of 1.3103 dollar in Germany.There is ongoing concern in the market about the huge deficits in both theUS trade balance as well as the US budget. World crushings of soybeans areincreasing seasonally. For Oct/Dec 2004 we expect a world crush of 45.9 MnT, up by 2.4% from a year earlier. This compares with year-on-yeardeclines of 6.0% in July/Sept and 1.7% in April/June 2004. US soybeancrushings reached a new record in October and are likely to establish arecord level in Oct/Dec 2004. But soybean crushings are still runningbehind the year-ago level in Europe, Japan and some other importingcountries. The weak world import demand for soybean meal kept Argentineand Brazilian soybean 2 0 0 4 crushings below the year-ago level inOctober and we expect the soybean crush in the two countries to be alsodown from last year in Oct/Dec 2004.
