Price volatility is huge - set your price

After CBOT wheat surged A$42/t at the end of last week on the back of a bullish USDA WASDE report the market got fed some more bullish news early this week with India announcing they’ll ban wheat exports. This saw CBOT wheat surge another A$34/t that day. The world was hoping Indian exports (who is not a regular exporter of wheat) would fill some of the shortfall in supply from the major global exporters this year. The fact that they won't, creates even more demand for Australian grains. Australian prices have been pushing higher as growers ask for higher prices and buyers are meeting their targets. South Australian grain remains the highest priced in the country with the $500/t milestone reached for APW1 wheat just a few weeks ago now well and truly left in the wake of what has been a surging market to trade at $561/t Port Adelaide on Clear Grain Exchange this past week. Variation in prices continues to be extreme across port zones, and whilst it is being driven by some demand side factors such as availability of export capacity, the availability and price growers are offering their grain for sale is also likely having a big impact. There is often more value available than the price being bid. There are also often more buyers that want your grain than you may realise. Growers should remember that just like a buyer can show their bid price a grower can show their offer price. Offer your grain for sale to all buyers securely with Clear Grain Exchange and ensure you sell at it’s full value.
