Kim Anderson Says Not Much Movement in the Markets, Predicts When to Expect the Needle Move

Thu, 17 Jan 2019 17:04:04 CST

Kim Anderson Says Not Much Movement in the Markets, Predicts When to Expect the Needle Move This week on SUNUP! - Host Lyndall Stout is again joined Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson to talk about the current grain market conditions. According to his analysis, markets have seen only limited activity over the past few weeks.

Anderson says all major crop markets are currently trading within very narrow ranges and in consistent sideways patterns. The only crop that seems to have positive movement right now is soybeans. Although in recent days the price of beans has been lower, it does have a long-term uptrend overall.

“There’s just not much happening right now,” Anderson remarked, adding that any future activity will depend on news from foreign countries.

Possible developments that might have a significant impact moving forward, might include definitive answers on when China will return to purchase US soy or specific information about the ongoing Brazilian harvest - which recent weather reports have given cause for concern.

What would help American wheat farmers most, though, would be Russia and Ukraine’s exit from the global market in order for the US to take advantage of the residual export demand. Until such time that happens or until the current crop comes out of dormancy - few marketing decisions can be made by farmers. Anderson reports that currently, farmers can forward contract their wheat for 2019 in Oklahoma for a price somewhere between $4.50 and $4.75.
