Thanks for posting.

His crush index hit $325 per tonne yesterday, representing a gross margin of $7.37 per bushel.

That margin indicates that prices could be almost back to their highs and crushers would still be profitable.

As I suggested in another thread, this really looks like short term supply (even if just on paper) exceeding demand. Everyone was gun shy to forward sell anything after last years drought and buyout debacle, and a dry start to this growing season. So pricing pressure which would otherwise have been spread out over the crop year has been compressed into the harvest glut. Everyone who needs to sell for cashflow or storage had no choice but to sell into the declining market this summer and fall. Regardless of profitability, the system has finite capacity, so The market had to find a price that would convince sellers to hang on and ration those supplies throughout the year. While the sellers keep panicking that the bottom is falling out adding more fuel to the fire. Reply With Quote

    Any exporters that dont have crush facilities will supply the crushers vs export for the same margins that are easier, safer.

    Farmers need export, and sales reporting to offset at a minimum the shit show that is going to happen. Hope im wrong Reply With Quote

    But then again they haven't quite figured out why an export sales report is required. Reply With Quote
