Market Comments

Good Afternoon April 17, 2015

Chirp? Chirp? Here the crickets? Nothing happened today. Nada. Zilch.

Estimate of funds short position at over 92,500 in Chicago wheat. When this position reverses put your helmet on and the ol’ mouth guard and hang on for the 8 second ride. Egypt is tendering this weekend- this very well could be the event to start the market reversal.

May futures closed unchanged @ 494 ½ in CGO, up 1 @ 509 ¼ in KCY and down 2 ¼ @ 532 ¾ in MINNEY. For the week May futures closed down 32 in CGO, down 49 ½ in KCY and down 49 ¼ in MINNEY.

What to watch for: 

  • HRW weather remains a volatile flashpoint for wheat futures as forecasts do hold some promise of better chances for rain next week.
  • The wheat market is short 92.5k+ contracts – we need to be aware of when the market will reverse their position due to a potential weather/geo-political event. (this has steadily been increasing over the last few weeks)


Will have our next marketing meeting at 6:30 am on Wednesday April 29, 2015 @ SEL in Pullman. SEE YOU THERE!

  • The IdaGold seed is being cleaned now and samples are already on their way to the lab.  We should have results back within 2 weeks.  If the seed passes Certification, it will be made available to all of our distributors ASAP.
  • Our Kodiak and White Gold crops essentially failed due to sustained high temps and no rain in the dryland growing areas this summer.  We did get a small amount of Kodiak harvested (and a very small amount of White Gold, but not enough to sell), but the seed did not meet Certified Seed standards due to the presence of a small amount of lambsquarter seed that we were unable to clean out.  These varieties will be unavailable this year.
