OSU's Kim Anderson Says Grain Prices Should Not Move Much as Holidays Begin

Thu, 18 Nov 2021 18:45:20 CST

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Grain Prices Should Not Move Much as Holidays Begin This week on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson says as most harvests wrap up in Oklahoma and the holiday season approaches, there is not much going on.

“The value of the dollar went up again,” Anderson said. “When it went up, we saw grain prices fall off just a little bit because that impacts our export price.”

There is always concern for lower prices still. Anderson said during the holidays grain markets begin to get thin. As that happens, when a mass of sales flood the market, prices are driven down. The opposite happens when buying happens.

Some advice Anderson said he continues to give to producers is to stagger sales. He suggests producers who still have wheat or soybeans stagger sales over the next month or so. Corn usually rallies in the spring, so save some for when those prices hit, he said.

“This year’s world harvest is essentially complete,” Anderson said. “I do not see many reasons for prices to go higher.”

As for cotton, he said he does not know why anyone would hold cotton when prices are so high.
