  • Caution Urged
    With some weather forecasters predicting a late-summer drought, there's speculation the market could experience dramatic gains. Advance Trading commodity broker Tommy Grisafi says anything is possible, but caution is advised. "I don’t want a farmer to get in trouble and think this is their marketing plan this year. Every year we have a chance of a wet spring, a drought and prices can explode. If we have supply issue, we have enough grain to meet the first five or ten days of hot weather this summer.” Grisafi was one of three market analysts that taped a weekend market portion of U.S. Farm Report at the Northern Soybean Expo.
  • A Wall of Grain
    There seems to be a cloud hanging over this market. Allendale President and CEO Paul Georgy, who spoke at the North Dakota Cornvention, expects plenty of bins to be emptied out within a matter of weeks. "Bankers are going to say farmers need to generate cash. We also hear a lot of grain has been marketed via deferred-price contracts and basis contracts. Most of those will be priced out before the end of March. It could be a negative for the market." Georgy advocated the use of the options market to protect margins.
  • Informa Economics Updates Forecast
    Informa Economics lowered its forecast of Brazil’s soybean crop by almost a million tons. However, it’s still above 100 million tons, above USDA’s current forecast, and would top last year’s record crop by 4.3 million tons. Informa raised its Argentine bean forecast to 60 million tons, which is three million tons bigger than USDA. Informa raised its estimate of Argentina’s corn crop four million tons, and Brazil’s by 300,000 tons.
  • South American Crop to Influence Basis Levels
    Mike North, who leads Commodity Risk Management, does not expect any big changes in the grain trade. "Put it into perspective and recognize that this is not going to be a high-flying 2012 or 2013 type of market." The U.S. is moving toward the end of its typical export window, particularly for soybeans. The South American crop will be on the market in the next six-to-eight weeks. "That means our country elevators won't be as aggressive when buying beans and basis slips away at that point. Right now, basis could be called average-to-poor, but that doesn't mean it couldn't get worse. If you put a lot of extra soybeans into the world market, there is no reason for markets to go higher. Basis does the work first and than the futures market follows.” North was part of a taping of U.S. Farm Report during the Northern Soybean Expo.
  • An Impact on the Energy Markets
    During a taping of U.S. Farm Report in Fargo, Bolt Marketing market analyst DuWayne Bosse had concerns about the energy markets, including ethanol. “What I’m nervous about is in 2016, energy prices will stay low," said Bosse. "I’m a believer this weather scare happening in the corn market. That means corn markets will rally sharply. Then, the ethanol plant’s margins go way in the red. When we get this spike in the market, you need to sell hard because demand will shut off and we’ll go back to the price we have now.”
