TVC COMMENTARY

Tighter supplies
signal we're
turning the corner

February 17, 2019

TVC There was some welcome stability in the market with most processors having a smoother-running week.

Supply continued on the tight side, but average weights are keeping stubbornly high.

There are many indications now that supply will tighten soon, and that will hopefully put a bottom in the market. All contract price contributions stood-on, but there was minimal spot trade.

The fresh meat trade still saw poor demand with little interest being reported from the high street. However, the commencement of half-term holidays for some may improve things.

Cull sows stood-on pricewise despite supply being a touch tighter.

In Europe, Belgium and Spain added 4 and 3 eurocents respectively, and all quotes in sterling were enhanced by a stronger euro that ended the week up 0.45p at 87.94p.

ABOUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS

Traffic Lights is available to British pig producers on Thursday nights, advising next day's spot price sentiment. The Traffic Lights spot base provides sellers who have one-off loads of spot pigs (as opposed to regular weekly supplies) with a realistic minimum base price. In many cases it should be possible to achieve premiums over base. During periods of oversupply the Traffic Lights price will be well below contract levels but the reverse applies when pigs are short, when spot base will be well above contract rates.
