Re: Floor Talk September 25

One analyst sees the funds re-entering the commodities market next week, the start of the 4th fiscal quarter. And, since harvest is speeding along, a harvest low could hit in early October.

 

Do you feel the same about the markets rallying in October?

 

 

Thanks for sharing,

Re: Floor Talk September 25

This morning, it looks like soils are being replenished for the southern Corn Belt areas. Of course, this is where a lot of wheat is apparently being planted too. Will this rain delay wheat planting? Here's the latest look at the Freese-Notis Weather Radar:

Re: Floor Talk September 25

It appears we could get  "4 or 5" inches in Northeast Nebraska and 24 hours after the event work would resume - we have  ground fractures of one to two inches in places due to the drought - --having traveled to Great Bend Kansas during labor day weekend it appears 90% of the 325 mile trip have similar conditions --- glad to see someone is getting precipt although we are far from drought relief with a one or two shower event ---

Re: Floor Talk September 25

Thats what I'm thinking as well.   And I've heard that there is a lot of corn being sold across the scale.  Which I think is way the market has taken a hit.  Farmers didn't forward contract as much as they had in the past and are needing money.

Re: Floor Talk September 25

Have had close to 7 inches of rain since Labor day.........most came Labor Day weekend......

Cracks still in the ground and ponds still low........it all went down.....

We are still 10 to 15 inches below normal......

These clowns that think an epic drought is JUST OVER with a rain cloud need to get a clue......

It appears that this fall is supposed to be warmer than normal........precip not sure.......but its not looking good to get things recharged......

And FYI..........El Nino is dead.......index went neutral and slipped below to La Nina.........

LMAO.............I don't wanna see another year like last in my lifetime........but it is a teachable moment that some failed to learn the first time around.....

Mizzou_Tiger,

 

I'm not going to say much, other than stay tuned for Successful Farming's Mid-November Marketing Issue. You might be surprised about some folks' thoughts on the longterm weather outlook.

Listened to Al Dutcher on UNL -Market Journal and didn't seem to optomistic for precip the next 60 days - if he was ever wrong I hope it's now--- cattle roughage in  " EXTREME " short supply and continued herd liquidation will surely continue ---

I think I might start painting my office and watch it dry.
