Directionless but still strong

A new hope in the wheat market.

The force is strong in the wheat market, with positive pricing signals coming forth. The northern hemisphere “weather market” period is always the most volatile time for pricing, with the majority of the worlds crop being in the growth phase. After six years of strong production, the weather strikes back.

Fundamentals and black swans.

The market has been knocked around this week, by both fundamental factors driving pricing and the black swan event in the form of President Trump. Although volatile, the market can provide pricing opportunities for Australian producers.

May you live in tranquil times.

There is an old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times”, used ironically to suggest that uninteresting times are more life enhancing than interesting ones. It seems our friend Donald, would like to consign us to a lifetime of interesting times.

Sideways for the week except canola.

It was steady as she goes for wheat and barley markets, while canola has been on the slide this week. In fact, canola basis weakened further and now sits at levels more expected during a bumper harvest, not a year of tighter supply.
