Asian market
The market remains rather quiet as the focus in Thailand and Vietnam is mostly on the newest Iraq tender, which closed last Monday. There has not been an official award yet, but we fully anticipate Asian rice will likely dominate this business. In the meantime, demand elsewhere (in particular West Africa) is quite thin, and prices mostly sideways. Thai 100% B is quoted at $455-465 per mt FOB Bangkok; 5% is $430-440, and parboil has firmed a little on the coat tails of some fresh Nigerian business. It is now quoted around $460. Two other areas that we are keeping a close watch on are Indonesia and The Philippines. Unfortunately, The Philippines have once again suffered crop losses due to inclement weather (El Nino), the most recent media report evidences about 400,000 mt. It seems as though there is a different report out each day saying they will have import needs this summer as a result of the losses...countered the very next day by some government official refuting this by saying they have ample stocks. In short, we do not see the NFA repeating the same mistakes made back in the fourth quarter of 2009, and will likely remain absent the market for the foreseeable future. As far as Indonesia is concerned, we understand their crop has not been negatively beset by this mild El Nino season and have no nearby import intentions. Otherwise, the market is quiet and the undertone steady to slightly softer.
