  2. 2. NEWS DETAILS: Pakistan Traders Keen to Re-Export India Rice Nov 12, 2013 Some Pakistan rice exporters say that the country’s overall economy could benefit from awarding the Most Favored Nation (MFN) status to India and allowing rice imports from India.According to local sources, some Pakistan rice exporters are eyeing re-export of rice to countries in Central Asia and the Middle East. Exporters stand to benefit from lesser distance from such markets compared to India. Moreover, production costs are increasing in Pakistan and sales of Pakistan basmati rice is low in the international market this year partly due to high prices. Another promising market that Pakistan rice exporters have access to is China, the world’s largest rice importer.India has already awarded the MFN status to Pakistan in 1996 under WTO rules. Pakistan is likely to award the MFN status to India next month, say sources in Pakistan. However, the move is opposed by rice farmers and some exporters in Pakistan who say that imports of low-priced rice from India will destroy the languishing local rice industry.The Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (REAP) says that India imposes an import duty of around 70% on rice imports, compared to around 14% in Pakistan. REAP wants the two countries to first equalize the rice trade tariffs or remove those completely before awarding the MFN status to India which will allow free movement of rice and other agriculture items between the two countries.

  3. 3. Global Rice Trade Forecast to Decline in 2012-13 and 2013-14 Nov 12, 2013 Global rice trade is likely to decline in 2012-13 and 2013-14 due to lower purchases by leading importers and poor production prospects in India and China, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).Rice trade in 2012-13 is expected to reach around 37.6 million tons, down about 2% from around 38.4 million tons in the previous year. In 2013-14, global rice trade is likely to decline further by aorund 0.5% to around 37.4 million tons, according to the FAO.Indonesia, Iran, South Korea and the Philippines are all expected to reduce their imports due to abundant supplies. Production is increasing in all these countries while rice consumption is on the decline in South Korea. Imports by African countries are also likely to decline. The FAO says that China’s rice imports are likely to remain high in 2012-13 and 2013-14, but may decline if global prices increase.Among exporters, India is expected to remain the world’s largest rice exporter in 2012-13 and in 2013-14, but exports are likely to slow down from 2011-12 due to higher stock utilization under the National Food Security Law. "India is expected to bear much of the brunt of the 2014 contraction in world trade, shipping 9 million tons of rice or 1.2 million tonnes less than estimated for 2013," FAO says. Exports by Pakistan, the U.S. and Vietnam are also likely to decline. However, Thailand’s rice exports may recover in 2012-13 and 2013-14 due to decline in export prices.The FAO also lowered its forecast for 2013-14 world rice production to around 494 million tons, still up about 1% from 2012-13 due to worsening of crop prospects in China and India.Global rice utilization in 2013-14 is forecast to reach 489 million tons, up about 2.6% or 12 million tons from the previous year.

Rice consumption in North Korea stands at around 1.9 million tons until summer 2014, while rice per capita consumption in the country is estimated at around 67.2 kilograms per person per year, unchanged from last year.

  4. 4. Oryza Overnight Recap – Chicago Rough Rice Futures Trade to Double Digit Gain Overnight but Trade Volume Remains Depressed; Grain Complex Begins Morning Higher Nov 12, 2013 Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery are currently paused 10.5 cents per cwt (about $2 per ton) higher at $15.735 per cwt (about $347 per ton) as of 8:30am Chicago time. The other grains are seen higher this morning ahead of floor trading in Chicago: soybeans are currently seen about 0.3% higher, wheat is seen about 0.3% higher, and corn is paused about 0.3% higher.U.S. stock index futures pointed to a lower open on Wall Street on Tuesday, with Wall Street poised for a pause a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at another record high. Both the Dow and the S&P 500 have hit record heights, the latter at the end of October, as the Federal Reserve held off on reducing its $85 billion in monthly asset purchases, also known as quantitative easing. In China, government officials ended a four-day gathering held to plan economic reforms, saying they would let markets take on a larger part in deciding where resources go. Attention remains firmly on the Federal Reserve on Tuesday too with key comments expected from Fed presidents Dennis Lockhart and Narayana Kocherlakota when they speak later today. U.S. stock index futures are currently trading about 0.2% lower, gold is currently trading marginally higher, crude oil is seen trading about 0.1% lower, and the U.S. dollar is currently trading about 0.1% higher at 7:30am Chicago time.

Rough rice futures turned negative today as prices faced firm technical resistance from the upper Bollinger band, noted at $15.757 per cwt (about $347 per ton) today. Selling pressure intensified as the trading session continued and by the afternoon prices had fallen to a 15 cent per cwt (about $3 per ton) loss on the session. In addition to technical pressures additional selling was likely triggered by a bearish turn in the corn and wheat pits; soybeans finished the day about 1% higher at $13.1925 per bushel; wheat finished about 0.2% lower at $6.4525 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 0.6% lower at $4.3225 per bushel.U.S. stocks declined on Tuesday, with Wall Street slipping after a two-session rise that had the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting a record close and the S&P 500 coming to within a point of its all-time finish, as Wall Street considered the timing of any moves by the Federal Reserve to curb stimulus. After fluctuating on either side of neutral, the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted modest losses. Utilities and financials led sector losses and telecommunications and technology its gains on the S&P 500. The Nasdaq also lost ground, after initially fluctuating on either side of neutral.

  9. 9. January delivery, today’s action confirmed yesterday’s topping formation and prices moved lower after a morning attempt to rally failed. The market did manage to chart out a fresh near-term high of $15.765 per cwt (about $348 per ton), however it also broke through and closed below yesterday’s session low. Technicians see this as a negative technical development known as a “bearish engulfing” pattern and forecasts are for prices to continue lower tomorrow. Today’s losses were limited by underlying support provided by the 50-day moving average, seen at $15.475 per cwt (about $341 per ton), a level that will likely come into play again during the coming trading sessions. Today’s trading range is noted as $15.480-$15.765 per cwt (about $341-$348 per ton).Monday, there were 538 contracts traded, up from 510 contracts traded on Friday.

  10. 10. Oryza U.S. Rough Rice Recap – Market Remains Firm Despite Limited Trade; Harvest Now Complete Nov 12, 2013 The U.S. cash market continues to remain firm despite limited trade activity as sellers hold out for higher prices as supplies tighten. Some analysts contend that buyers will likely have to pay up to get farmers to move their rice although most insist that there is very little demand at the levels needed for that to occur.Offers increased to around $15.65-$16.66 per fob farm (about $345-$367 per ton), depending on where they are located in the U.S. mid-South, for November through December shipment. Bids from most larger mills decreased to around $14.90 per cwt (about $328 per ton ) while bids from exporters could still be seen around $15.40 per cwt (about $340 per ton), both for November through December delivery, however no trades were reported although there were rumors of next year’s crop trading around $14.40 per cwt (about $317 per ton) for delivery before the end of 2014.In the meantime, the USDA released their crop progress report today however the harvest progress for Rice was omitted indicating that the rice harvest is, for all intents and purposes, complete.
