Daily Market Wire 27 November 2020

Lachstock Consulting, November 27, 2020

US futures markets were closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. European and Canadian markets moved little.

  • Chicago wheat March contract not quoted;
  • Kansas wheat March contract not quoted;
  • Minneapolis wheat March contract not quoted;
  • MATIF wheat March contract up €0.75/t to €210.25;
  • Corn March contract not quoted;
  • Soybeans January contract not quoted;
  • Winnipeg canola January contract down C$1.50/t to $577.40/t;
  • MATIF rapeseed February contract down €2.50 to €410.25;
  • Brent crude January down US$0.81 per barrel to $47.80;
  • Dow Jones index not quoted;
  • AUD unchanged at $0.736;
  • CAD weaker to $1.302;
  • EUR unchanged at $1.191.


  • With the US boards shut down and many out of the office, it was a quiet night globally.  Egypt’s GASC tender saw three boats of Russian bought at  ~US$275/t C&F (including GASC costings, a bit under ten bucks implied).  There was one French offer in the mix, about ten dollars out of the money – pretty much as expected with the recent weakness in Black Sea markets.


  • Australian harvest continues to push along with impressive wheat yields coming across the east coast.
  • Local markets were off $3-4/t yesterday on wheat after the global break, with canola and barley seeing limited change.
  • NSW receival sites are continuing to fill up quickly with the large volumes coming in and the focus is shifting more towards the export program execution.
  • Aussie wheat remains competitive into ASEAN homes, despite the recent (small) weakness in the Black Sea region markets, and it’s mostly a question of how capacity flows will work.
  • Weather maps remain mild through the next week, and should see a good share of harvest finish up.
