Buyers more conservative


Last week saw the lowest number of buyers match grower offer prices to purchase grain through Clear Grain Exchange (CGX) in 24 weeks.



This reflected buyers pulling their bids lower while growers generally held their price targets at higher levels given many have made sales and are able to be patient.



Interestingly the number of buyers searching for grain offered on the exchange remained high at 108, with a total of 4,000 searches made for grain.



This suggests there was still significant interest from the buy side in purchasing grain, but they weren't able to match grower price expectations to trade.



Hence the spread between bids and offers in grain markets, or buyers prices versus sellers prices, has widened recently.



The rally in international grain prices through April/May has also stalled as winter wheat harvests in the the northern hemisphere get underway.



There hasn't been any news of significantly improved crop conditions, however the fact that some supply is about to hit the market may be making buyers more comfortable to wait and assess what growers do rather than continue to push bids higher for the moment.



Grain was still trading last week through both CGX for warehoused grain and igrain for grain stored on-farm as some buyers closed the price spread to match offers and secure grain, albeit that trade volumes were lower.



The retraction in bid prices appear to be steeper in the eastern states. This may be a consequence of some better weather conditions and/or less grain offered on the exchange in those areas.



Growers have a say in the price of Australian grain. They can show ALL BUYERS their sell price by offering it for sale on CGX or igrain.



States with the highest volume of grain on offer, and the strongest sell price signal to buyers, have generally traded at higher relative values!



Last week ASW1 wheat traded $350/t track Melbourne and $411/t in Kwinana as an example.
