Marketplace Overview

Variation in commodity prices

In a global supply-demand scenario for the 2018/19 cycle in which consumption should outstrip supply by at least 5 million bales, cotton lint prices should find support in the world market, based on a scenario of a continuation of the upward trend in the fiber’s consumption observed in the last five years.

CBOT spot soybean prices were relatively stable in the first quarter of 2019. In a context of limited soybean exports by the United States to China, Brazil continued to increase its soybean exports to China.

CBOT spot prices for corn presented higher volatility during the first quarter of 2019. The impacts of African swine fever on the global animal protein production chain could create opportunities for the Brazilian chain, since any shift in demand to animal proteins produced in Brazil would drive local demand for grains, increasing competition with export markets.
