BMD CPO Ends 2% Lower on Weaker Soyoil Prices

Mumbai (Commodities Control) – Malaysian palm oil futures ended nearly 2% lower on Wednesday, snapping a four-day winning streak tracking weaker rival soyoil, but losses were limited by expectations of a plunge in July inventories.

The benchmark palm oil contract for October delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange settled down 53 ringgit to 2,715 ringgit a tonne. The contract hovered in the range of 2707 and 2769 Ringgits and volume stood at 56,026 lots.

Palm rose as much as 2.82% in the previous session, touching its highest since Feb. 10.

Managed funds are reducing their net long in soybean and soyoil on better soybean crop quality in the U.S. and a record-breaking crop in Brazil, said Marcello Cultrera, institutional sales manager and broker at Phillip Futures in Kuala Lumpur.

Brazilian soy production will hit a record 132.6 million tonnes next season, as demand from China remains strong and farmers intend to expand acreage, according to a forecast from agribusiness consultancy StoneX on Tuesday.

Palm oil is affected by price movements in related oils as they compete for a share in the global vegetable oils market.

Dalian's most-active soyoil contract fell 1.83%, while its palm oil contract was down 0.24%. Soyoil prices on the Chicago Board of Trade were also trading 0.16% lower.

"Palm oil exports estimates for shipments from Malaysia over August 1-5 show around a 20% contraction month-on-month," Cultrera said.

A survey pegging Malaysia's end-July palm oil inventories nosediving 11.94% from June to three-year lows is supporting prices, as exports grew and production slumped due to a worsening labour shortage.
