OSU's Kim Anderson Says Holiday-Season Wheat Volatility Was Expected

Thu, 06 Jan 2022 18:24:07 CST

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Holiday-Season Wheat Volatility Was Expected This week on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson talks about the state of the grain markets after the holiday season. As predicted, there was volatility in the wheat markets.

On Thanksgiving, wheat prices were around $8.45, then fell to $7.50 a week later, rose back up to $8.30, fell again to $7.60 and so on, according to Anderson.

“(It was) back up to $7.75 and then it has been falling off (since) this weekend,” Anderson said.

Over the last 40 or so days, wheat moved 95 cents, Anderson said. Corn prices started the holiday season at $5.65, got as high as $6 and have since fallen, he added. Soybean prices moved similarly, starting at $12.10, falling to $11.60 and rising to $13.20 at Christmas.

“With wheat, we definitely have volatility,” Anderson said. “With corn, (there is) some uptrend there with a little bit of volatility, but I think (for) soybeans, we are going to say we established an uptrend there.”
