Bid-Offer spread widening

Australian grain markets are in a bit of a stand-off currently. Buyers continue to wind back bids while growers and their agents are somewhat reluctant to adjust their price expectations too much. This saw lower grain volumes trade through the exchange over the week however generally engagement on both sides of the market remained high with buyers searching for grain, and sellers looking for bids and/or offering grain for sale. CBOT wheat futures were crunched lower last week providing a softer lead to local markets and many buyers appear relatively comfortable with cover so are able to be patient on accumulating more for the moment. Despite the recent weakness in CBOT, Australian grain continues to be sold offshore with trade margins on paper at least remaining largely intact. Hence physical market values aren't moving to the same extent as CBOT however traded values have pulled back from the highs in most areas. As a guide, ASW1 traded $531/t Port Adelaide and $465/t Melbourne. Feed barley traded $453/t Port Adelaide and Melbourne, and $435/t Kwinana. Canola traded $1,068/t + oil Melbourne. Plenty more grades and locations were trading. 22 different grades of wheat, barley, canola, lupins and oats traded across 10 port zones around Australia. Click the link to search values. Prices have eased, but demand remains and Australian grain continues to get booked off-shore. So make sure you have your grain on offer to give it a chance of trading at it's full value - there's no downside.
