Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that the pressure on U.S. grain prices continues.
“The wheat market has been the main culprit of the sell-off in the corn market. Weather has definitely turned to the drier and warmer side and that is allowing corn to get planted. However, the late-planted corn will keep the grain markets volatile throughout the growing season,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.
Re: Floor Talk, June 6, 2019
Just a sidebar, this new format is incredibly user unfriendly. I am not going to spend time scrolling down the screen just so you can have wide open blank space. It used to be that I could quickly glance at 10 or more threads and know if there was a new posting just by glancing at the screen. Now I can see 3 and if I click on one of them, you have to scroll down to see even one posting. Just a site killer software program I guess, hope you paid a bundle for it.
Re: Floor Talk, June 6, 2019
Thanks for your reply. Let me ask you, are you on a Mac? Whatever you are working on, try to make your screen smaller and you will see more threads. For instance, if I hit the "command" key and then push the "minus" key, my screenwindow reduces. This allows me to see more threads at once, not just three.
Let me know if that works.
Re: It looks like traders are going to make us prove how much crop there might be.....
It looks like traders are going to make us prove just how much crop there might be but it's important to remember that just 25 days ago, July corn traded at $3.51, 70 cents less.
As for the export sales report, it's interesting to note that for the past several weeks, China has bought one or two boatloads and taken delivery of about 3 boatloads. The rumor is that those beans have gone into China's government reserve. Whatever the Chinese government's feelings about the trump's trade war, it hasn't stopped them from buying a few loads of low priced beans, not so many so as to attract attention but some anyhow. The problem is, they've still got about 85 loads to take delivery on in the next three months and 3 load per week isn't going to get the job done.
