Soybean prices opened firm on friday initially in India taking cues from International markets

Soybean prices opened firm on friday initially in India taking cues from International markets but later traded negative due to some profit booking in oils, good soybean arrivals in the domestic markets and weak lifting of soybean meal by end users. Demand for forward month soybean meal were observed from traders but most of the processors are interested for ready month lifting trade. Yesterday in the CBOT the soybean complex again rallied and closed sharply higher due to great support from soybean oil. Soybean prices have touched to new highs after more than four year high and are up over $11/bu. Due to weaker dollar, dry Brazil conditions despite some rains, fund being long, strong Census export data for September and a discrepancy between customs and USDA export data that is expected to slash ending stocks sent soybean contracts to higher. Strong exports are no surprise but the discrepancy in data has raised some questions on supply availability and put some additional focus on the coming Tuesday November WASDE report.

Soybean meal prices were also traded up in the CBOT for the three consecutive session, actually strong demand from China is pushing soybean meal prices higher as soybeans have now crossed the US$11 level.

Today soybean prices opened up by INR 250-300PMT in the domestic markets. All India soybeans arrival are reported around 62,000-63,000 metric tons in the domestic markets. In the future exchange soybean prices opened firm and at high & later traded low by 0.78% and closed at INR 43,130 against yesterday close of INR 43,320.
