One analyst says, "I think beans are running on the South American weather which is too dry in the Mapito region and too wet in RGDS and into Argentina. I see no real demand. The harvest should be about over and that means the beans are locked in the bin and it will take some price to pry the bin doors open again, which is bullish as well. Lots of talk of a harvest low. Wheat seems to be too much rain in Argentina and not enough in West Australia and maybe the Great plains too. Weather is good otherwise. Demand is strong but not so much for us, but world prices are creeping higher and we sill start to do biz soon. Corn having problems as the COF on Friday once again showed less demand."

--S. Korea secures 50,000 tons of U.S. wheat Monday.
--Cash basis prices remain strong, some analysts Monday signal that the fall lows may be in and higher futures prices could be seen between now and 2013. What do you think?
Now that harvest is all but over, are you still bullish on these markets, headed to the end of the year?
Early calls: Corn 3-5 cents higher, soybeans 12-14 cents higher, and wheat 7-9 cents higher.
Overnight grain, soybean markets=Trading higher.
Crude Oil=$0.61 per barrel higher.
Wall Street=Seen opening higher, rebounding from Friday's nosedive. Caterpiller announced Monday that its third quarter earnings jumped 50%.

Am I bullish? Yes. How bullish? I don't know. I think back to a couple times I held out for another nickle, and sold for a quarter less, so I'm thinking if the bids are good end of the year, I may take them.
I have never, ever, ever been called so many times, by so many people, continually offering better basis, or free hauling, or free hauling with better basis, than I have in the last 60 days.
For a little background, I do not raise much corn at all, most of the acres I run, are grass for cattle, and I also sell as much as practical to local cattle feeders (shorter haul for my single axle truck). For me to get calls, from buyers I maybe sold 5,000 or at most 10,000 bushels, 3-5 years ago, tells me that they are already looking to buy more bushels.
I have already been offered 8 cents over (board) for nearby, or 8 cents over, plus trucking, with sale date and delivery, anytime from now until March 1st, determined by me, or they will come get it right away, free trucking, and will match board price, anytime between now and April 1st.
I have never been called, with offers to buy grain, before the end of the year before.
Now, to be smart enough, to know when to sell, LOL.

mike, its happening all over the place...........for some it started in 2011........others 2012..........E-plants are at $8 already.......its October!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I still think the USDA is WAYYYYYYYYYYY too long on the supply side..........and they have demand hammered down pretty darn far...............
in the middle of all this is an election...........
IMO there is a huge supply shock coming in corn...............and oilseeds may not be far behind, although $18 soya may have been it..........
