“Grains are lower across the board this mid session and trading in a very narrow range. We would expect this continue for the balance of the week as traders position ahead of Friday's USDA planting intentions and WASDE report. Other than that it is a very quiet day by way of news in the trade,” O’Connell says.

Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors are watching the corn market for trend direction.

 

“Will the bull spreads continue to improve for corn? The July 2019 to December 2019 spread has pulled in by 3 cents over the last two weeks. If that spread continues to improve, then it shows corn is shifting to a demand-driven market,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

"investors are watching the corn market for trend direction"

 

Hey investors,  Why don't you just start buying corn?  Then, you will know for sure what direction it's going.  Geez, it's not rocket science. Smiley Wink

Re: Floor Talk, March 26, 2019

it is indeed a funny statement...... Investors watching the market for direction.......... Sounds more like gamblers 

 

Investors are ..................not investors until the transaction is complete.

 

Maybe it is potential investors ............ like mike and us.

Words used to have meaning...not so much anymore.

"Investors" would never mean hot spec money chasing the most

recent algo driven trade. Speculation and Investment used

to be 2 seperate concepts clearly divided by fiduciary rules.

Now, bitcoin is considered a legit investment, it doesn't even

exist in the real world :-)

 

Alas, when this mess causes the meltdown that causes the

next "Deep Depression" we will go back to the old banking

laws, albeit with a new currency and a lot less rich folks on the

coasts :-)

Investors.

 

Riding a trend wave is a handicapper.
