This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Has News on a Possible Future Rally in the Wheat Market

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 17:40:07 CDT

This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Has News on a Possible Future Rally in the Wheat Market This week on SUNUP - Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson joins host Lyndall Stout for another conversation, examining the current wheat harvest conditions and price outlooks. Anderson says wheat prices in the state took a hit and then quickly recovered some at the start of this week.

Anderson says this was a knee-jerk reaction in the market triggered by another year of high production around the world. However, after the crop condition report from USDA came out Monday, revealing HRS wheat was in much worse condition than the markets thought, the prices improved.

Anderson has been monitoring the pulse of the July KC Contract, hoping it climbs above the $4.50 level, which for the moment it seems to have dipped down.

“It’s critical that we hold that $4.50 level,” Anderson said. “We’ve got to hold $4.50.”

Cautiously optimistic about prices, Anderson says if the July contract could inch up to $4.70 - $4.75, he is confident prices could have a clear shot at reaching $5.00 later in the year.

His advice though to farmers is not to get greedy. He advises wheat growers to stagger their selloff of their grain, a third at a time, and to take advantage of rallies when they happen.
