Anderson Says Grain Prices Testing Bottom Supports and Could Drop Lower

Anderson Says Grain Prices Testing Bottom Supports and Could Drop Lower
In this week's preview to the SUNUP program, Oklahoma State University Small Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson says there's a lot going on in the markets, but there's not a lot happening with prices.

"You look at the corn crop-we may be fixin' to harvest a 14-billion-bushel corn crop here in the United States. They are already cutting in the extreme southern parts of the United States. You've got reports in Canada that they're fixin' to harvest the biggest wheat crop in the last 20 years. That's going to bring some protein on the market to compete with ours. They're talking about a record canola crop in Canada. Reports this week said that Australia's crop is going to be below average or the odds are that it will be below average and less than the last couple of years. You just have a lot going on around the world that has the potential to impact price, but there's just no price movements."

He said the Kansas City and Chicago September and December contracts are moving in a 20- to 25-cent price range with most of the movement recently at the bottom end of that range. He said if the market continues to hammer on that bottom support, prices could break lower.
