Re: I got a hunch

Which of you will be selling $10 corn?  That is, who will have corn left to sell at $10?  I doubt if I will.  At $10, a lot of demand is going to dry up, it would seem to me.  It would be my guess that corn can't stay over $8 for any length of time.  Exports will be weak.  Ethanol depends on the price of gas.  Feed usage would be diministed as more livestock goes to auction.  I think I'd empty my bins at $9 and maybe before that.

 

I've talked to a couple of buyers who give me the impression that most of the big feeders have their needs met at last on paper for the year.  how much corn is on the farm?  Truckers are telling me that they've emptied a lot of bins.

 

Some of the corn didn't go in the bins all that well.  I emptied one storage only bin that had 18.5% corn with a little damage.  Glad it's gone.  The other bins are drying bins and they chould be OK, but quality could still be an issue this year as it warms up.  We may have spoiled grain to sell and no cattle to feed it to.  A neighbor shipped some 19% corn with noticeable damage so he emptied that bin.

Re: I got a hunch

good to hear the natives rustling about....what is magic about 10, or is it just a "symbol" for a scenario one can't quite concieve of,.... yet.....maybe?

 

Was there ever a time when 4 dollars was beyond belief?...6 dollars?...8 dollars?.....

 

Was $10 Chicago Wheat predicted by all in 2008...how high DID it trade...Minneapolis? 

 

What prices were quoted last summer by an analyst? Where do current world and US stocks/use ratios fall relative to historical ratios?

 

do some of you feel the USDA might implement an illegal HALT to corn trade starting one day when/if they feel market has lost control? 

 

How has the USDA disallowed or not, previous markets to not do something it would otherwise "do" without their intervention? 

 

Simply Q's to consider amongst the hunches going on.

Re: I got a hunch

Jim, I have the same idea. I won't be owning any corn at $10. It will probably be gone at 8.
