You do know that those folks who posted pictures of a bull, strapped to a rocket are finally correct. 

I did read something about at the end of the month, there will be a full moon that aligns somehow to the planet of Uranus........ I’ll just let everyone figure this out on their own. 

Hey Mike, any guesses from the marketing gurus that you speak to, on how high these markets are going?

Keep up the good work fellas, sky is the limit.  Soybean planting insurance date kicks in here in two days.  Here comes the rains hopefully no more snows and freeze.  No corn in locally yet couple guys jumped the gun on beans, wheels will be rolling soon.

roarintiger1,

 

The only thing that I'm hearing is that they think the high prices will stretch into 2022.

Re: Floor Talk April 22, 2021

Ok Mike, thank you!

My guess is......they would only be guessing, at best. They don’t know either and are especially afraid to make their predictions public after what has transpired in the previous eight months. 😉

Re: Floor Talk April 22, 2021

Roaring, now that we are here what's the plan?

 I haven't lived up to my plan of $15 or July whichever comes first.

We are 50 to 60 cents over that target way sooner than I guessed it'd happen.

The corn thing is also in rarified air. Not sure should be in hurry to dump last of it either based on post above developments.

Re: Kinda' hard not to sell some ...

Kinda' hard not to sell some more new crop corn at these prices, especially since parts of Brazil have been picking up some showers.  You can't help but think that as soon as the planters start rolling, the price will moderate a little.

Re: Kinda' hard not to sell some ...

Hobby, My plan is to simply continue to sell little by little on the old crop.  So far, every sale increases the average price overall. Right or wrong, I think it’s much too soon for a lot of new crop sales. But having some is not a totally bad thing either. 
At some point the price rallies  have to slow down.........don’t they?
