Soybean prices fall even with a rise in the dollar; see the quotes


The Brazilian market for soy had an atypical day. Even with the dollar rising significantly in relation to the real, the oilseed fell on the Chicago Stock Exchange.

Thus, prices in Brazil were mixed, fluctuating within small margins. There were few busy lots.

Soy in Chicago

Soybean futures contracts traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) closed Friday with lower prices.

In addition to fundamental factors, the market was pressured today by the climate of greater risk aversion in finance.

Data released by the American government indicated that the job market remains strong in that country, resulting in doubts about when the interest rate cut cycle will begin in the United States.

The climate of risk aversion increased, oil fell and the dollar rose, with investors
looking for safer options.

During the week, the March position accumulated a loss of 1.7%, feeling the pressure exerted by the fundamental scenario. The arrival of a large harvest from South America makes buyers shift their demand. As a result, there is additional pressure on American futures prices.

Next week, attention will be focused on the February report from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which will be released on Thursday (8).
