Buyer-Seller price spread widens


The volume of grain traded, number of sellers, and number of trades all increased on CGX last week despite the number of buyers purchasing grain falling.



It's indicative of the current market dynamic. Published buyer bids have fallen significantly, grower offer prices have been more reluctant to move, creating a stand-off between buyers and sellers with different price ideas.



Yet some buyers are needing more grain in the near term and this has seen them bid up to, or closer to, grower offer prices for specific grades and locations.



22 different buyer businesses purchased grain through the exchange last week with another 90 searching for grain and contributing to a total of 3941 searches for grain offered for sale last week.



Growers have been active in showing the market their sell price by OFFERING grain for sale at the prices they want which are often well above current published bids.



The OFFERS are showing buyers grower price expectations and growers know they're protected by anonymity and secure settlement if it trades.



Wheat grades made up 84% of all grain traded through CGX last week, barley grades accounted for 15%, and lentils and oats made up the balance.



ANW1 noodle wheat traded up to $540/t last week in the west, H1 and H2 were trading $410/t and $400/t respectively, and feed barley traded $350/t in Albany as examples.



H2 wheat was trading $370/t in Port Adelaide which was only slightly higher than AGP1 trading $367/t, while feed barley traded $344/t.



Melbourne port zone saw H1 trade $485/t track, H2 was $369/t, ASW1 was $336/t and feed barley traded $332/t as examples.



The falls in buyer published bids have been noticeably more prominent in the eastern states which has made it harder for those markets to come together and trade.



However per the examples provided, buyers are still wanting grain and often prepared to pay more than you may realise.



If you don't have your grain OFFERED FOR SALE it can't sell and you will never know!



Growers have a say in the price of Australian grain. Show ALL BUYERS your sell price by offering it for sale on CGX or igrain.
