Soybean
Domestic soybean spots continued weaken, quotation on spots in Heilongjiang area dropped below RMB 3900/ton, new bean in south as well dropped below RMB 3900/ton, demand from northeast market was predicted to further sluggish in short term.  We regarded soybean NO.1 contract price in short-term was influenced by weakened spots, the weakened midterm pattern is obviously.
Soybean meal market was volatile in strong pattern in this week, spots rallied in stabilizing; quotation was generally at RMB 2750-2850/ton. On one hand, US soybean broke through 900 cents; on the other hand was under the boosting from good basis sales and tighter supplement. But the global oversupply pattern still remained; the altitude and strength of DCE soybean meal reviving in short-term still rely on sales rhythm from oil plants and the further performance from US soybean.
As for operation, we recommend holding soybean NO.1 contract in shorten at high; holding soybean meal in long at light positions.
