  4. 4. The U.S. cash market was uneventful today ahead of the release of the USDA’s World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimate due out Friday morning at 11 a.m. CST. Most analysts expect the report to be a non-event however most wouldn’t be surprised if the USDA decided to tweak some other estimates.As of today, offers held firm near $15.55-$16.66 per fob farm (about $343-$367 per ton), depending on where they are located in the U.S. mid-South, for January through March shipment. Bids from larger mills decreased to around $14.90 per cwt (about $328 per ton) while bids from exporters were unchanged near $15.15 per cwt (about $334 per ton), both for January through February delivery, although there are reports of smaller mills paying as much as $15.88 per cwt fob farm (about $350 per ton) for prompt shipment.In the meantime, today the USDA reported that cumulative net export sales for the week ending on January 2nd, totaled 91,900 tons, which was 5% higher than last week and 59 percent higher than the prior 4week average.Increases were reported for the following destinations including: 37,000 tons to Mexico, 35,000 tons to Canada, 13,500 tons to Taiwan, 8,300 tons to Nicaragua (including 8,000 tons switched from unknown destination), and 1,500 tons to Australia. U.S. rice exporters shipped 82,600 tons, which was 44% lower than the previous week but 4% higher than the prior 4-week average. The primary destinations included: 31,800 tons to Turkey, 24,500 tons to Japan, 10,400 tons to Mexico, 8,300 tons to Nicaragua, and 2,700 tons to Canada.

Rough rice futures came under pressure once again today, as spread activity slowed and outright selling intensified ahead of tomorrow’s USDA S&D update. Industry experts do not expect any major changes for the numbers concerning rice, however volatility could easily spill over from neighboring grain pits and cause unexpected price swings. Overall it was a quiet day for the grain complex as traders made slight last minute adjustments to positions ahead of the reports. The other grains finished the day with mixed results; soybeans closed about 0.4% higher at $12.7375 per bushel; wheat finished about 0.8% lower at $5.8425 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 1.2% lower at $4.1200 per bushel. U.S. stocks posted mild losses Thursday as investors considered accelerated tapering by the Federal Reserve, a drop in jobless claims ahead of Friday's December payrolls report and corporate earnings. Improvements in the labor market have been cited as central to Fed policy decisions, with minutes from the central bank's December meeting released Wednesday afternoon included some members expressing the view that the "criterion of substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market was likely to be met in the coming year." The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell. The S&P 500 held little changed, with telecommunications and materials the leading laggards and utilities and health care performing best of its 10 sectors. The Nasdaq remained in the red. U.S. stock markets are currently trading about 0.1% lower, gold is trading about 0.2% higher, crude oil is seen trading about 0.7% lower, and the U.S. dollar is seen trading marginally higher at about 2:00pm Chicago time. Turning to the daily continuation chart of Chicago rough rice futures for March delivery, the market prove below nearby support noted yesterday provided at the point of convergence of the 10-day and 20-day moving averages, noted at $15.440 per cwt (about $340 per ton) today. This move has returned prices to technically bearish territory and provides a negative forecast for tomorrow’s trade direction. Prices now appear prepared to test support provided by a longer-term low around $15.200 per cwt (about $335 per ton) a level that has not been tested since mid-December. Open interest continues to be noted at very low levels and daily trade activity remains subdued, both factors that could explain the recent price swings. Today’s trading range is noted as $15.365-$15.540 per cwt (about $339-$343 per ton).Wednesday, there were 326 contracts traded, down from 669 contracts traded on Tuesday. Open interest – the number of contracts outstanding – on Wednesday increased by 54 contracts to 6,924.

  6. 6. Thailand Government to Sell 150,000 tons of Rice Via Futures Exchange Jan 09, 2014 The Thailand government is planning to sell around 150,000 tons of rice from the new crop (2013-14) through the Agriculture Futures Exchange of Thailand (AFET). Hommali fragrant rice and 5% broken white rice will be offered in the auctions. According to caretaker minister of commerce, the last date of submission of bids is January 15, 2014. Tags: Thailand rice tender Thailand Exports 5.9 Million Tons of Rice in January – November 2013 Jan 09, 2014 Thailand’s rice exports during January – November 2013 stand at around 5.9 million tons and worth about 121 billion baht (about $3.97 billion), according to the Thai Rice Exporters Association (TREA).Total rice exports in January – November 2013 include around 2.4 million tons of white rice, about 1.3 million tons of Hommali rice, and about 1.4 million tons of parboiled rice. Considering the average monthly exports in January November 2013, Thailand’s total rice exports are expected to reach around 6.4 million tons in the full calendar year 2013, which is down about 24% from the targeted 8.5 million tons.In November 2013, Thailand’s rice exports declined to around 519,700 tons, down about 32% from around 762,196 tons of rice exported in the previous month. Sharp decline was seen in white rice exports which reached around 148,012 tons in November 2013, down about 52% compared to around 306,610 tons in October 2013. Exports of parboiled rice declined to around 146,367 tons in November 2013, down about 41% from about 248,724 tons exported in October 2013. However, exports of Hommali rice increased to around 150,738 tons in November 2013, up about 37% from around 110,120 tons exported in the previous month.White rice, Hommali rice and parboiled rice exports accounted for around 86% of total rice exports in November 2013.

The BoC claims that court injunctions and other strategies by mastermind “David Tan” prevent action against rice smuggling into the Philippines which costs the government millions of dollars in loss of revenue. However, local leaders say that these are just excuses used by the Customs to divert public attention from rice smuggling in to the country and “David Tan” is a fictitious character used as a ruse, according to local sources.The new BoC chief says that the agency is well-informed about the involvement of one "Mr.T” or “David Tan” in the smuggling activities, but is unaware of his real identity.

The BAAC deputy director had earlier said that the bank could offer 55 billion baht (about $1.6 billion) to fund the rice mortgage program. However, he said after the board meeting this week that it could be unlawful in the absence of a cabinet resolution. The board says that savings of bank customers should not be used to fund the rice mortgage program. The BAAC board decision has the support of the bank’s Labor Union which has threatened legal action against the bank if it allowed liquidity surplus to finance the rice mortgage program. The Union says that such a move could cause panic among customers of the bank and lead to bankruptcy.Thailand's Election Commission (EC) allowed the caretaker government to continue selling rice stocks. The caretaker commerce minister says the decision will allow the government to resume talks with the Chinese state-owned food conglomerate China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation, which earlier was interested to buy one million tons of rice. Apart from this, the government has agreed to sell 1.2 million tons of 5% white rice to a Chinese state enterprise in Harbin. The minister also said that local private traders are interested to buy 500,000 tons of rice as well.However, the government is under pressure to fnd the rice mortgage program 2013-14. This week, the Finance minister of the caretaker government promised to clear delayed payments to farmers by January 15, 2014 following brief farmer protests. The government is issuing bonds in the debt market to raise funds worth around 75 billion baht (about $2.27 billion) to run the 2013-14 rice mortgage program (October – September), but has raised only about half of amount so far.

Farmers say that rice yield is likely to drop this year and overall production in 2013-14 could drop by up to 25%.Farmers also accused the government of failing to keep its electoral promise of providing subsidized fertilizers. However, the agriculture minister says that the government plans to provide organic fertilizers instead of chemical fertilizers as a part of government policy and the switch is unlikely to result in lower yields.According to the USDA, Sri Lanka's milled rice production is forecast to reach around 3.05 million tons in MY 2013-14, up about 14% from around 2.67 million tons in MY 2012-2013. Sri Lanka’s rice exports are expected to remain at 20,000 tons in MY 2013-14.

Inflation expectations, as measured by the difference between yields on 10-year nominal Treasury notes and Treasury inflation protected securities (Tips), have risen to 2.28% from a low of around 2.10% a month ago. *China has offered to invest in Britain’s railways for the first time by financing and building links to a new Birmingham station on the high-speed HS2 network, highlighting Beijing’s growing interest in investing in U.K. infrastructure. *Israeli and U.S. officials say they expect a framework providing the basis for talks toward a final-status agreement on a Palestinian state to be agreed within weeks. The negotiations have an end of April deadline. *Chinese consumer price index fell to 2.5% from 3.0% in November. It was a seven-month low, bucking the usual pattern of higher year-end inflation. *Malaysian industrial production climbed 4.4% from a year ago in November, beating estimates at 2.9% as well as the prior month's reading of 1.7%, Malaysia's statistics department said. *The U.S. Federal Reserve plans to “proceed cautiously” in slowing down asset purchases in an effort to calm market fears over the decision to taper its third round of quantitative easing.

The exchange, which comes after Libya shot at a tanker it said was illegally entering its waters, raises concerns about whether the chaos that has more than halved oil production in the North African nation and rattled oil markets could get worse. *J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. has hired IMF official Anoop Singh for a new role as head of regulatory strategy in Asia. The appointment comes as the bank's hiring practices in the region are being investigated. *India tightened the screws on the Americans in New Delhi amid a festering dispute over the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York last month.
