Oilseeds trading was affected due to the closure of the Chicago Exchange despite a bullish trend on the Malaysia Exchange. Due to this, soybean, groundnut, cottonseed oil prices fell in the oil-oilseeds markets across the country on Thursday, while the prices of mustard oil oilseeds closed softly due to reduced demand from large mustard mills.
Traders said the Malaysia Exchange was up 0.15 per cent while the Chicago Exchange was closed. Importers are finding it expensive to import CPO and Palmolein as imported oils are available at a cheaper rate in the local market, due to which the importers have to sell their goods cheap in the local market even after making expensive purchases. CPO and palmolein prices remained at the previous level amid a rally in Malaysia Exchange.
Mustard prices also soften
Sources said that the planters are at a loss in crushing soybean and cottonseed because imported soybean oil is available in the market at a cheaper rate. Planters are getting soybean grain at a price of Rs 6,700 a quintal and they have a loss of about Rs 200 a quintal in crushing. Similarly, cottonseed crushing mills are also facing losses in crushing. Due to this situation there is a fall in cottonseed and soybean oil prices.
Soybean grain and loose prices closed with gains due to demand for oil-free soybean oil. He said that the prices of groundnut oil also fell due to the cheapness of cottonseed. Mustard oil oilseeds prices also closed showing softness during normal trading amid the general trend of decline. Rest of the oil and oilseeds prices remained unchanged.
