OptionEye Feb 29th

Still hearing scary anecdotal evidence about how tight things are out there. Yesterday, on the open in corn options, speculators bought 3,000 July 9.00 calls. They paid 2.5 cents for them and have bought about 4,000 in total over the last week.


ADM has covered their short calls in April on every break lower and gone outright long of the April 7.00 calls as we continue this underlying bullish feeling in the corn. Resistance is at 662 and 667.


Is the pipeline as tight as we are hearing in Chicago?

Are you referring to the bin augers rattling?   When my augers rattle, that means that the bins are empty.  


When my head rattles..........well, that's a different story.

Re: OptionEye Feb 29th

My local buyer thinks there is a lot of grain in local famer's hands.  I have a few loads to deliveer, but otherwise have no old crop sold.  Mine is about half gone.  I can't speak for anyone else.  Local truckers are not real busy.
