Soybean Price Hits 9 Year Low Due to Trade War

Commodities / Agricultural Commodities Jun 24, 2018 - 04:50 PM GMT

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Commodities

Early this week the price of Soybean futures (ZS_F) plunged to a new low in more than 9 years due to the tit-for-tat trade war between U.S. and China. Soybean Futures started to drop on Friday last week after Trump administration decided to go ahead with 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of goods from China. The list of targeted goods includes technology products which are part of Beijing’s Made in China 2025 initiative.

China quickly retaliated with its own 25% tariff on 545 U.S. goods worth equal value, including agricultural products such as soybeans, corn, and wheat. Soybean futures for July delivery dropped more than 7% to $8.415 a bushel, the lowest since March 2009. The price is now 10% down for the year, and more than 17% down for the quarter.


According to the study by Purdue University, if Beijing applies 10% tariff on U.S. Soybeans, total soybean exports could drop by 18%. China still buys more soybeans from the U.S. than any other agricultural commodity. Last year, China bought $14 billion worth of soybean. China is the world’s biggest importer of soybean and America’s largest buyer.

In the short term, as the world’s top importer, China can not fulfill its soybean needs without importing massive quantities of the U.S. product. China still needs U.S soybean in a few months, even next year. However, if the trade war drags on for a long time, China can look for an option which could have irreversible effects on U.S. markets.

Due to the tariff, short term China will feel the pain of having to purchase U.S. soybean at higher cost in the next couple of months. The higher price that China needs to pay however is somewhat offset by the declining Soybean Futures price. U.S farmers on the other hand are also feeling the pain with soybean futures price near 10 year low. In the long run, depending on how long the conflict persists, the unintentional result can be that China can adapt without U.S soybean.
