OSU's Kim Anderson Says the Market is Showing a Lot of Volatility Right now Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP. This week Dr. Anderson says the big news is price volatility, "You look at wheat prices several weeks ago.. you could forward contract Oklahoma Wheat for harvest delivery for $7.25/bushel. Then the market over a couple of days took $1.40 off of that price, and then it's been up like 25, up one day, down the next day, 15 up to 10 The next day, So you've got a lot of price volatility. Right now you can sell wheat in Oklahoma for around $6.35." Anderson said the market has also been volatile for Corn, "You look at the corn market that forward contract price, now not the current cash price, but the forward contract price was $6.25, the market knocked $1.25 off of that thing. It's gained 60 cents back. Soybeans $13.75 Knock off $2 Come back $1.50. So we got a lot of price variability in the market or volatility."
