Bids pull back - offers hold

Weakness in CBOT futures ahead of an impending northern hemisphere harvest saw Australian buyers taking a cautious approach to purchasing grain last week. Buyers were generally reducing their price ideas and many were happy to sit on the side-lines feeling relatively covered for the time being. Growers also seemed somewhat content to be patient and hold their price targets noting prices have been volatile and internal Australian grain prices still make Australian grain very competitive on the world market. The result was sporadic trade activity last week as buyers that needed more grain jumped in and bought grain on offer then retreated to the side lines again. Many buyers were also placing firm bids against grain parcels on offer showing the price they felt it was worth on the day which was often much better than published bids. Some growers that wanted to sell more were matching those bids whilst others were happy to hold at their targets. In all cases, the offer was doing it's job and creating demand by attracting buyers to try and buy their grain and give growers a better reflection of the real value of their grain in that day's market. APW1 wheat traded $490/t in Kwinana, ASW1 $430 Kwinana and $436 Melbourne, SFW1 $439 Geelong and $406 Port Kembla. Feed barley traded $428 Geelong and Port Adelaide, while lupins and oats traded $347/t and $350/t respectively in the west. Sometimes demand can be unpredictable. If you have grain in warehouse and a price in mind, make sure you've offered it for sale at the price you're targeting. There are often more buyers than you realise trying to purchase grain. Make sure you give all of them the opportunity to buy your grain. You're protected at all times with anonymity and secure settlement.
