AG TIME If I Didn’t Know Better by John Walsh

I find much of the market perplexing. There are things that don’t add up, in my humble opinion. The soy complex is so oversupplied. The market has never had a supply like this. Unprecedented. Yet, prices are still high relative to the historic norm. Not my norm. The norm in

AG TIME - Much to Consider by John Walsh

The soy has had a nice rally. It is important to realize that this is a historically high price given the stocks to usage. In addition, the current price is actually $1.60 per bu higher given the Administrations one time payment to the farmer this year. The board is playing

AG TIME G Meeting by John Walsh

This weekend should be market moving one way or the other. Sunday evening could be interesting. President Trump will be meeting with President Xi. It is my thought that a window of opportunity will present itself. Trump, I believe, wants a deal. Xi I believe needs a deal but doesn't

AG TIME Two Divergent Paths by John Walsh

The Soy was down a bit today. This rally of late seems to be based on optimism that the US China relations will cool and demand will be restored. Perhaps. It is my belief the relationship will be restored to the Liking of Trump. However, I also believe we are

AG TIME Time to Settle in by John Walsh

The USDA report is in the books. There really were not any surprises from my thought regarding the markets. To recap. The US carry is growing. The USDA only reduced Chinese imports 4 mmt. The 18/19 marketing year the carry is projected to swell to 955 million bushels. This is
