        • Friday we closed one tick under the June 30th report day close, the 18 day MA is right here also so not a good place for a gap. This gap (high volume gap BTW) is on the intra-days as well as the daily's. Friday's CFTC numbers showed pretty much short covering AGAIN, failing at 4.50 just invites the bears to re-sell it. Kinda scary how close the net longs in corn are compared to Christmas time******

          *****This is a techs-book case why as a producer you DO NOT WANT TEXAS HEDGE*****

          The new longs that bought corn since the 30th report (37k of them) went under water (on margin call) pretty dam fast.

          • Tomorrow to may be a scary day as gold down nearly $50/oz and nothing else is acting well. The WSJ had a couple of good articles in regards to the lack of concern for inflation as demonetized by gold imparticular. I had always thought the best thing to happen if Greece went under. it would show socialism and the taxing of those more fortunate cannot sustain the abuses of those who do not produce. The prevailing wisdom was that it was a good thing. It never provided a pop to the Euro which I think would have gone higher if Greece had left the Euro. There are countries in the Euro zone who do not share the common currency. Slovakia is a prime example. It is a very rich country for projected productivity but has norms to produce to participate in the commom currency. Greece is like the panhandle of Fl. as produces nothing but tourism. It could not survive if not tourism. I did nTot like market behavior on Friday and got out of 1/3 of my positions and not a pretty performance. I am fearful of China and do not realize the depth of their financial situation for overbuilding and taking on debt. I know how industrious and hard working my Chinese neighbors are, but the government is displacing and taking care of an enormous population off the land. What if they redeem US bonds? We cannot sustain our debt. This coming week should be interesting. Zero interest rates are not a good phenomena globally. They are a sign of desperation. They indicate no growth or development. The world is still a hungry place and we have probably seen our high as far as supplies. I remember the stories by grandfather told me in trading grain in the 30's. They were not good and have the books from his company to prove it.

              • As mfsman says, there is a lot of uncertainty in world markets. Coming up with enough jobs for everyone in the world seems to be a problem. If too many are unemployed, demand is weakened. It seems to me that the Euro area will be an on-going problem. Spain is finally growing again, but unemployment is 22%! Europe has a common currency, but no common political union. In the US, when severe economic problems hit places like Florida a few years ago, the federal government sent a lot of money in unemployment insurance, food stamps, etc to help them out, and now they are doing much better. The Euro area has no such support system. This will make life and their economies more troubled over the years as compared to ours. And it is a WORLD economy now days. Troubles in a major area of the world have repercussions in all economic areas of the world.

                  • You mean there is really a market for that stuff?

                    Comment


                    • commods are trying to rebound ,gold is down $20 but is $30 off it's lows,may have an exhaustion gap,beans almost got higher for the day,export inspections came in higher than expected which gave the market a bump,crop condition ratings are expected to be steady to better in this afternoons report.I thought 9.90-10 should hold the beans ,4.20 should hold dec corn.weather is suppose to warm and dry but wet areas still seem to be getting rain.I don't think the west corn belt is good enuf to offset the east,while there are good areas it's not all good,we haven't had a rain in almost 3 wweks now corn is rolling in the afternoon,wcb could start losing yield to dry at pollination time could cause serious damage

                      • well, SRW coming off, right full of chit, you name it, its in there, feed grade if that. Yields are super, figures.....

                        Comment


                        • the big selling in gold was out of china,something like 3 million lots were traded on the shanghi exchange,compared to 30,000 0n a normal day,not thought to be new shorts just everyone throwing in the towel,did'nt help that several other asia markets were closed due to holidays so less traders exaggerated the move.
                          crop conditions were unchanged as expected,probably doesn't help the bulls much,I think it will take crop tours to get the bulls back in control,seasonally the market works lower and until we get a better handle on acres and yield we probabaly grind lower,US$ acts toppy so that may help,USDA did report 100,000 mt nc beans sold overnight.I still view this as a correction not a new down trend.

                          • Steffy, what do you suppose the USDA is going to do with the old crop bean numbers? With the exports we have had to date there seems to be no way that we can't end up with a quite tight ending stocks number. Talking with my local elevator manager, he says Mankato and Dawson are having a hard time sourcing beans already. He has next to none and it sounds like I'm one of the very few with any. I'm Still sitting on a third of them, right or wrong.

                            • With that said SDSP has widened $.25 since this rally took off?

                              Comment


                              • SD,last years bean crop looks like it was over estimated,demand has been better both from domestic sources and export,crush margins still very good,so oc stocks should come down,nc stocks could be tight also as acres and yield gets reduced,we're getting dry,how about you.
