Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors want to see sales, as a result of these trade agreement announcements.

“Will we see any export sales come across the daily reporting system today? The strong price action on Friday was tied to reports that large corn sales were made. If traders are disappointed, then the bulls will have a difficult time holding support ” Kluis stated in a daily note to customers.

Kluis added, “The news burden is with the bulls over the short term. The bulls need to see friendly news headlines nearly every day or run the risk of the bears gaining traction.”

This kind of coincides with the "John Deere low" .  Rent and taxes due in about 5 weeks too.

Re: Floor Talk, January 21, 2020

So....the traders need to see bullish news everyday?    They wouldn't know what to do with it if they got it.

On the flip side, the USDA is really good at their job of keeping American food inexpensive.   Yeah right.......have any of you checked out a menu at a good steak place?   Somebody's making money.    We know who isn't.

Re: "Investors want to see sales". Investors? Everybody wants to see sales, & sooner than later.

"Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors want to see sales, as a result of these trade agreement announcements" before they get excited about prices.

  It was a "pig in the poke" deal after all.  Turns out that it may have been more of a "dog-in-the-poke" deal, as in "a real dog". 

  Investors and farmers alike have every right to see some real tangible results sooner than later because they were told that their sacrifice would be worth it.

  I suspect that the Chinese set a trap for trump with the farmers as bait and now they've sprung the trap.  The fact is that now the Chinese can just slow-walk this deal until late next year and nobody can object.

    What we need to remember that as "bait", we get eaten, too.
