    I have been reading about dropping glycerine prices in many parts of the world. I think this is a leading indicator for vegetable oils and oleic acid prices. In other words, I think low glycerine prices means we are about to see a significant reduction in veg oil and related materials.

    Any other opinions on this?

    Hi Marc, I’m not sure about glycerine being a lead indicator for veg oils. It is an indicator of the volume of biofuels that are being produced via esterification.
