Philippines Buys 750,000 Tons of Thai, Viet Rice in G2G Tender Sep 17, 2015

The Philippines’ National Food Authority (NFA) will import 750,000 tons of 25% broken rice at $426.83 per ton from the governments of Thailand (supplying 300,000 tons) and Vietnam (450,000 tons), according to local sources. Under this tender, there will be 250,000 tons imported this year, including 125,000 tons in November and 125,000 tons in December, and 500,000 tons imported next year. The Thai and Viet offers were initially rejected due to high prices, but the NFA gave the governments until 3 pm on Thursday to resubmit offers. The NFA was spurred to act in part due to the El Nino weather phenomenon that is expected to worsen by October and last through to the spring of 2016, reducing precipitation in parts of Asia.

Chinese operators of Cambodia’s Kamchay Dam released water that flooded rice paddy fields, fruit trees, livestock, and homes of over 1,500 families in the area. The Kamchay Dam opened in 2011 and the hydropower facility was constructed by a Chinese company for $280 million under a 44-year build-operate-transfer contract, according to Hydro World. The dam and hydropower facility is one of several Chinese developed energy projects that sells power to the government of Cambodia. The dam is located South of the capital city Phnom Penh.

Oryza Overnight Recap – Chicago Rough Rice Futures Sharply Lower Overnight as Market Continues to Pullback from Recent Highs Sep 17, 2015

Chicago rough rice futures for Nov delivery are currently paused 12.5 cents per cwt (about $3 per ton) lower at $12.740 per cwt (about $281 per ton) ahead of floor trading in Chicago. The other grains are seen trading lower ahead of early morning action; soybeans are currently seen trading about 0.7% lower, wheat is listed about 0.7% lower and corn is currently noted about 1% lower.U.S. stock index futures held a touch lower on Thursday as traders looked to the Federal Reserve and today's interest rate decision. The Fed's Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) rate move is expected to be announced at 2:00 p.m. ET, with a press conference from Fed Chair Janet Yellen set to follow at 2:30 p.m. Whether the Fed raises rates or not, markets may move more on its words than actions. Traders have been betting against a central bank rate hike, so news of such an increase could get a negative response. But some say markets would be more relieved in the event of a rate rise if the Fed assures a slow path higher for rates, and it could do that in the interest rate forecasts of its members and again in its post-meeting news briefing. The markets will also seek a clear explanation of why the Fed did not hike, if it holds rates steady. In Europe, the pan-European Stoxx 600 index was little changed, with investors keenly awaiting the Fed's decision. In Asia, the Shanghai Composite index closed down 2.08% amid volatility, while Japan's Nikkei finished 1.43% higher. In economic news, initial jobless claims declined slightly to 264,000. August housing starts fell about 3%. Gold is currently trading about 0.3% lower, crude oil is seen trading about 1.1% lower, and the U.S. dollar is currently trading about 0.3% lower at 8:15am Chicago time.
