Published bids pulled back

Published bids were pulled back aggressively during the week across most commodities possibly as a result of weakness in CBOT, rumours over Chinese import restrictions (which didn't eventuate), and more confidence in production outlooks for many parts of Australia.

This saw sporadic trade activity on Clear Grain Exchange last week as buyers were generally reducing price ideas. Interestingly both buyers and sellers remained relatively active on the exchange in terms of logging in, searching the market, and placing bids and offers respectively.

It appears the aptitude to buy is there, but price expectations are apart in many cases and demand can be hard to predict. 21 different buyers purchased grain through the exchange last week with more searching indicating there is still plenty of appetite.

APW1 wheat traded $416/t port in Melbourne last week, ASW1 was trading $400/t Kwinana and Albany, $401/t Pt Kembla, $375/t Melbourne and $364/t Pt Adelaide. SFW1 and FED1 wheat grades traded $362/t Newcastle, while the higher protein grades continued to extract much better value with APH2 trading $448/t Newcastle and H2 selling for $451/t in Pt Adelaide.

Other examples include spartacus barley trading $472/t port equivalent in Pt Kembla last week with reasonable volume, which just goes to show if you don't have your grain offered for sale to all buyers you may never know what value it can trade!

BAR2 feed barley grade traded $328/t in Portland, oats and lupins traded $279/t and $281/t in Kwinana respectively.
