Marketplace Overview

Variation in commodity prices

The average cotton spot price on the ICE US during 3Q18 was de 84.4 USc per pound, slightly below the average price in the prior quarter, but presenting a downward trend towards the close of the quarter. Supply and demand in the short term remains favorable for cotton, with consumption following a solid upward path in recent years to set new records.

The average spot soybean price on the CBOT was 14% lower than the average price in the prior quarter and 12% lower than the price at the start of the year, basically due to the confirmation by China of the 25% duty on soybean imports from the United States, which is one of the developments of the trade war cited earlier.

The average corn price of the first contracts traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) in 3Q18 was slightly lower than the average price in the previous quarter and, by the end of September, was basically at the same level observed at the start of 2018.
