ROTTERDAM: Soymeal on the European meals and feeds market was offered mixed on Wednesday in thin trade on positioning ahead of Thursday’s USDA crop and supply/demand reports.
South American soymeal was offered between $3 a tonne higher and $3 lower. Pressure came from ongoing concerns about the trade dispute between the United States and the world’s largest soy buyer China, which also weighs on CBOT soymeal futures.
EU rapeseed was quoted between unchanged and one euro per tonne up from Wednesday, supported by a firmer dollar, which underpins products quoted in euros, and worries over rapeseed yields due to a recent dry spell.
Technical weakness in rapeseed futures limited gains.
