OSU's Kim Anderson Talks About the High Value of the US Dollar

Thu, 20 Jan 2022 18:28:13 CST

OSU's Kim Anderson Talks About the High Value of the US Dollar This week on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson talks about the latest in the grain markets. Right now, wheat exports have been down which is driving prices down. At the same time, corn and soybean prices are affected by what is going on in South America.

“The markets have been talking about the high value of the U.S. dollar,” Anderson said. “Since June, the value of the dollar was around 92 points, peaked at 96 in December and since has dropped off.”

Anderson said it is ironic that wheat prices peaked at $8.50 the day before Thanksgiving and again on Christmas.

“Wheat prices went from $5.50, up into the $7.50 range,” Anderson said. “We have a downtrend going on right now.”
