Market analysis
 
CBOT soy March futures prices plunged 5%, hitting five-week lows as speculators reaped profits before the festive holidays while the climates in Argentina improved.
 
In China, demand weakened substantially, dragging weekly transaction volumes to yearly lows. Overall transaction volumes of major crushers dipped 6.5% to 356,800 tonnes.
 
Soymeal prices dropped in the production region but stayed stable in the consumption region where supplies were limited due to tight transport schedules. On average prices slid 1.8% during the period in review.
 
 
Market forecast
 
As CBOT soy futures prices are under pressure, soy import costs will remain stable to lower despite a weak renminbi. This, together with cautious buying mood, will hold down the prices of soymeal in China.
