SCB Brokers Its First Platts-Based Brazil Soybean Swaps

Monday, July 01, 2019

By Megan Durisin and Isis Almeida

(Bloomberg) Two cash-settled swaps traded today based on the Platts assessment for FOB Santos prices, according to Jean-Baptiste Thebaut-Fries, a broker at the Nyon, Switzerland-based company.

  • One 5,000-ton contract traded at $1.10/bushel over August CBOT futures, and another for October traded at $1.15/bushel over November futures
  • Seller was Olam Europe BV and buyer was ETG, SCB says
  • Brazil has widened its lead as the world’s top soybean exporter, and its prices have become less correlated with U.S. oilseed as Trump’s trade war with China roils global trade flows, spurring a need for new hedging products, Thebaut-Fries says by phone
  • NOTE: Commodity Broker SCB Trades Its First Thai Rice Swap
