Market Comments

Good Afternoon Feb 26, 2015

Wheat markets closed in the green for the day. The weather is starting to take center stage in the midwest in preparation for 12” of snow across the HRW belt. Seems the market is not taking the fundamentals into account but instead is testing the technical lows. The market is still oversold  (wheat market short 50K+ contracts) and due a more corrective bounce at some point but there just isn't much information to support that right now. Export sales were 328,300 mt- mid range of estimates that were calling 200-400,000 metric tons. US dollar stronger. CGO May up 3 ¼ at 500; KC May up 1 ¾ at 5.32 ½; MINNY May up ½ at 5.56 ¾.

What to watch for:  (advantages from a down trending market)

  • Basis levels have come up in all wheat classes – GREAT opportunity here for old and new crop basis contracts


     Joe:  0% 2015 crop marketed (haven’t harvested yet)

     Ted: Ted recently locked in 10% on a Basis contract at 1.33 over the September contract and purchased (2) 5.20 WU15 put options for .35/bu (this protects his risk in the futures market)

                 Now Ted has taken 20% of risk off the table


Will have our first marketing meeting at 7:00 am on Tuesday March 3, 2015 @ 7 am @ SEL in Pullman in the Clark Room.

  • 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.
