What's wrong with pushing a few chips to the center of the table and keeping some for later? Reward the market a little and keep some to play with. Just a thought. Would this help you sleep better?
Thanks for sharing good, solid marketing thoughts,

Yes, this is the perfect time for an ace-in-the-hole, assuming your other obligations are taken care of. It's just you against the world. Play for fun. Play for profit. Playing for profit is fun. CAN you hit the top? Take your hole card and sell half every time you think it's at the top. So you sell some on the back side. It can still be very profitable. You might not get a chance to play at this level again - though you might next year - who knows?

Very good advice from Palouser! You would stand to sell enough at the top or real close to the top to feel very good about and to make a difference.Its funny,were back in sitsuation again where market talk turns to record acres for production next year globaly.Around here acres will be record or near record levels.I am in a specialty crop area,and my advice to myself is when every body runs south,turn around and walk north!

1) fill my contracts
2) if it is above $8 at harvest, sell half, bin half
3) ride the roller coaster with the rest.
One thing, I wonder, it seems everyone wants to hold out until next year to sell, if they do, I bet a person would get some really good selling opportunities in November or so?
