Insight and analysis of factors driving prices.
Fuel ethanol T2 values were at low levels during the first quarter, with oversupplied conditions contributing to weak pricing.
Healthy production rates in Europe, combined with imports from countries such as Peru and Guatemala, meant that supply had been long at a time when demand is seasonally lower.
With prices at low levels, sources noted discretionary blending taking place, with blending mandates no longer needed as fuel ethanol was now a cheap gasoline blending component.
However, prices showed signs of firming towards the end of the quarter as arbitrage opportunities to the Middle East, Canada and the Caribbean were noted.
In addition, tensions within Ukraine brought concern over grain supply, with corn and wheat prices rising as a result. This increase in feedstock costs also lent support to higher fuel ethanol prices.
Firmer values narrowed arbitrage opportunities, causing temporarily weaker prices, but strength in the US market served to lend support to fuel ethanol values again.
