Prices maintain recent improvement

Australian grain prices maintained their recent general improvement last week with buyers seeking some coverage and growers holding firm on price targets to sell.



This has seen a general lift in prices of most grades, with traded prices on Clear Grain Exchange regularly better than published bids as a result of buyers meeting growers price expectations when they want to buy the grain.



Price differences for the same grade between port zones remain wider than you may usually expect in seasons where all states are pricing off the world market.



For example, APW1 wheat traded $381/t Kwinana, $348/t Newcastle, $337/t Pt Adelaide and $325/t Melbourne. At these numbers Melbourne is priced below other parts of Australia on a "natural price spread" basis, reflecting the real costs of execution into Australian offshore markets.



There were similar examples of other grades trading at price spreads wider than the natural price spread would suggest, particularly in port zones that don't centre around the capital cities.



This is likely to be a good example of the influence growers have on grain prices. If buyers don't know grain exists in your area, and indeed what price you want for it, it makes it difficult for them to buy it and manage their risk.



This can result in them "checking out" of your port zone, or being no longer willing to participate to put a trade together, particularly in the port zones with less domestic demand.



Growers can influence demand for their grain directly, by OFFERING it for sale. This way ALL BUYERS can see it and remain interested in trying to buy it!



The Clear Grain Exchange stats show the port zones with the highest amount of grain offered for sale, generally have the highest number of buyers trying to buy that grain, and are achieving the best prices relative to other port zones.



The good news is there is no downside in having your grain on offer. It costs nothing to have a CGX account and nothing to have your grain offered for sale, plus you're anonymous at all times.



You can edit or cancel your offer at anytime before it sells and if it sells you retain title of your grain until you're paid with CGX's secure settlement.



There is so much value to be generated in the simple act of growers "OFFERING" their grain for sale rather than accepting published bids.
