Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that outside markets may influence the ag commodities.
“The announcement by Trump that he would not agree to a partial rollback on tariffs with China prior to “Phase 1” signing put pressure on the stock and commodity markets on Monday,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.
Kluis added, “The timing was right for a low in the corn market on Monday. The last two lows each month have come in on 9/9/19 and then on 10/10/19 maybe the corn market put in the low on 11/11/19?”

Deans milk is filing for bankruptcy. Shocking considering how wonderful the economy is doing. The USA #1 milk company going under, just another example of how actual farmers are doing. Sad. Oh and you can’t say the low is in every month on the 9,10,or 11th when they’re all lower than the last. I believe it would be more accurate to say grains have continued to disappoint yet fall to new lows every month.
Re: The dairy industry, I agree...
The dairy industry in bad shape, I agree. Big dairies here who I never thought would hurt for money are having a hard time paying their bills. Grain farmers don't dare sell them corn for fear not getting paid.
The word is, that shiny new milk powder plant near here, they've got so much unsold powder that all the warehouses in the vicinity are stacked to the rafters with product. The local dairies are buy truck loads of it cheap in unmarked bags to feed back to their calves. Anything to move some and make space for more while they desperately wait for an end to this trade war that never seems to come.
That big $140 million dollar powder plant that all the biggest local dairies went in on to build was a gamble to export milk powder to, you guessed it, China.

Somebody should have done more market research before trying to sell dairy
products to a population where lactose intolerance among adults is common.
