Thai Export prices rocketed,
Export prices for most grades of rice rocketed in response to drought-triggered speculative demand, and continued strengthening of the Thai Baht. Local millers are reportedly holding stocks for speculative purposes, following market concerns over the official press release on the anticipated reduction in MY 2004/05 main paddy crop by 1.232 million tons (0.8 million tons milled equivalent) resulting from the drought. Trade sources reported that domestic prices were so volatile that both exporters and regular foreign buyers stayed away from the market. Also, continued strengthening of the Thai Baht (to around 39.9 Baht/US$, as compared to the previous week’s average of 40.4 Baht/US$) boosted the prices by about US$ 2/mt. So far, the impact of the Thai Baht appreciation (since the beginning of this month) has reportedly resulted in an increase of export prices by approximately US$ 5/mt. In addition, the recent official proposed increase in the intervention prices for fragrant paddy to 10,000 baht/ton (roughly US$ 250/ton) from the current intervention prices of 9,000 Bath/ton (roughly US$ 225/ton) supported domestic prices of fragrant rice.
