55 buyers last week, more searching


Robust demand for Australian grain continued to create support for prices through last week with another record 55 buyers purchasing grain through CGX.



Buyers continued to be actively searching for grain and placing bids at prices they could make work which were often better than advertised published bids.



In addition to the 55 buyers that bought grain through the exchange last week, there were another 64 buyers searching for grain on the exchange.



Buyers made over 10,000 searches for grain on CGX just last week!



The improved appetite for grain seems to be driven by uncertainty in crop conditions both in major producing countries overseas and in many parts of Australia.



This has seen end-users both offshore and domestically looking to secure more of their grain requirements.



Interestingly published bids for many wheat grades weakened through the middle of the week before regaining the lost ground, and traded prices on CGX didn't appear to have moved lower with the bids.



Anecdotally there appears to be a general lift in "private" bid activity, where buyers are bidding prices direct to growers on the proviso that it's not shared.



Private bids are a method of securing grain and can also be an indicator of the improved buyer appetite. If other buyers were aware of the private bid, they would know the price they need to be at or above to buy grain.



If you have grain in warehouse, be sure to offer it at the price you want on CGX (or if your grain is stored on-farm, use igrain!).



Put your price on your grain and let ALL BUYERS see it and try to buy it.  



There's no downside. Growers are protected at all times on CGX by remaining completely anonymous and retaining title of their grain until paid with CGX's secure settlement.



Growers are impacting demand and prices directly by actively offering their grain for sale at the price they will sell it for.
