Look Out!

  • Markets dragged down last night by US corn forecasts for the 23/24 season.

  • This corn crop hasn’t even been planted yet, but the forecast is for record yields and higher ending stocks.

  • The US corn crop gets planted in May and harvested around the same time the Tigers win the flag.

  • The USDA forecast farmers will plant 91 million acres of corn this year which is up 2.4 million acres from last year.

  • They also forecast US corn ending stocks will increase from 32 million tonnes to 48 million tonnes an increase of 16 million tonnes.

  • US wheat acres are forecast to increase almost 4 million acres to a 7 year high at 49.5 million acres.

  • US Wheat stocks for this crop that gets planted around the same time Alligator Blood wins the Melbourne cup, is forecasted to also increase 1 million tonnes.

  • Their price forecast is for corn to be down 16.4% in 23/24, to $5.60 per bushel (USD $220 per tonne) and wheat prices to fall 5.6% to $8.50 per bushel (USD $312 per tonne).

  • They also advised the Powerball numbers next week will be 7, 12, 19, 8, 35, 29, 20 and the Powerball is 8.

  • Today marks the one-year anniversary when Hokey Pokey invaded Ukraine.

  • Chicago wheat was 876 cents / per bushel (USD $321 per tonne) and ASX Wheat was $369 per tonne.

  • Within one-month ASX wheat was up to $400 and Chicago up $11.00 per bushel, or an increase of USD $80 per tonne.

  • World FOB (Free on Board) price went from USD $350 per tonne WA to USD $400 per tonne FOB WA.

  • It's quite amazing 12 months later, our markets are lower than pre invasion levels.

  • Who knows what will happen over the next 12 months, apart from the USDA chief economists and the Reserve Bank Governor General.
