April 07 2024 13:20:13SunSirs(Selena)

According to the commodity market analysis system of SunSirs, in the first quarter, bearish sentiment was dominant, and the rebound in the feed raw material market was weak. The feed index as a whole fell, oscillating and falling by more than 6%. On March 31, the feed raw materials were 988 points, unchanged from yesterday, a decrease of 27.19% from the highest point in the cycle of 1,357 points (2022-11-10), and an increase of 32.26% from the lowest point of 747 points on April 10, 2016. (Note: The cycle refers to 2014-03-01 present)

According to the price monitoring of SunSirs, there was one product that rose, four products that fell, and zero products that rose or fell on the feed raw material price list in the first quarter of 2024. The main commodities that have risen are: DDGS (1.98%); The main commodities falling include soybean meal (-12.01%), rapeseed meal (-8.47%), and corn (-6.49%).

In the first quarter, the stocking market of terminal feed manufacturers gradually ended, and demand significantly declined. From January to February, the feed raw material market experienced a comprehensive decline, and gradually improved in March. Due to the large decline in the early stage, the rebound in the later stage was weak. Except for the increase in DDGS products, corn, soybean meal, rapeseed meal, and wheat all fell, with the overall oscillation and decline in the feed raw material sector being the main trend. Among them, soybean meal led the decline, with a decline of over 12%; Rapeseed meal came second, with a decline of over 8%; Corn and wheat both fell by more than 5%, while DDGS rose alone, with an increase of 1.98%.

In the first quarter, the soybean meal market fluctuated and declined, with a decline of over 12%. After New Year's Day, imported soybeans gradually arrived at the port, and the port's soybean inventory remained high, at a high level of 7.5 million tons. External bearish sentiment dominates, and the soybean meal futures market weakens. Combined with the weakening demand for terminal feed, the spot market for soybean meal has been continuously declining. Before and after the Spring Festival, the bearish sentiment remained, and the soybean meal market continued to decline weakly. Soybean meal has fallen for two consecutive months, with a decline of over 16%. In March, the import volume of soybeans to Hong Kong declined, and soybean meal inventories were low, supported by bullish sentiment. The soybean meal market fluctuated and rose for more than half a month, with an increase of over 12%. At the end of the month, the market experienced a slight correction. In March, soybean meal surged and fell back, with an overall increase of over 5%.

Agricultural product analysts from SunSirs believe that the main reason for the overall significant decline in feed raw materials in the first quarter is the loose supply of raw materials and poor terminal demand from January to February. After March, the demand for terminal feed has gradually recovered, and the overall feed raw material market has rebounded, with a smaller rebound than the decline, and oscillating decline is the main trend.

In the second quarter, demand side: Aquatic feed aquaculture has entered the peak season, and the rigid demand for terminal feed has increased. In addition, the low inventory of feed factories has led to a gradual rebound in the purchase of feed raw materials. In terms of demand, it is still mainly bullish. Supply side: South American soybeans are gradually being launched, and the import volume of corn and soybeans to Hong Kong is increasing. The pressure on raw material supply is still ongoing. Futures: During the South American soybean harvest season, the US soybeans will enter the planting period, and the external futures market will still be constrained by weather themes, with still room for growth. Long and short intertwined, the feed raw material sector may experience an upward trend in the second quarter, and the upward trend is expected.
