We're enjoying an awesome run of harvest weather and World Weather, Inc. senior ag meteorologist Drew Lerner is forecasting another ten days of mostly dry conditions. The soybean and sugarbeet harvests are coming to a close. Growers have been more cautious on corn, waiting for Mother Nature to help dry down the crop, but the weather should help us with that. During the rush of this season, RRFN reminds you to be safe and watch for slow-moving farm equipment on the roads.
Money Flow is Impacting the Grain Trade
Thu, 16 Oct 2014
While outside markets haven't been a factor in recent years, First Capitol Ag Risk Management Advisor Jacob Burks says money flow certainly impacted the grain markets this past week. “When you get back down to these lower levels, it’s amazing what outside influences will do to this marketplace. At this point, money flow outrules fundamentals.” Burks says the money flow is coming from the index funds. “They’ve had a neutral position in the corn. Soybeans, they’ve been short. The investment opportunity right now is not cattle. It’s not gold. It’s not in the stock market. It’s in the grains. They feel this is the undervalued product and that’s where the money goes back into.”
