Cautious demand as markets cool

The market cooled last week after rampaging higher recently. CBOT wheat futures grounded lower through the week before lifting Friday night. This set the tone for Australian buyers taking a more cautious approach. Rather than continuing to chase the market higher to secure tonnes, they were more selective on parcels and careful on price expectations. On the offer side of the market growers generally seemed content to hold their offer prices on grain listed for sale. Many appear to have sold some on the recent uplift and are now comfortable waiting, particularly with the new financial year around the corner. Growers and Agents were also offering their grain for sale at the recent price highs achieved, noting that they still feel Australian grain is competitive internationally at the price they're asking. Hence the Australian price hasn't moved to the same extent as the CBOT market. Where it goes from here is anyone's guess. There were still plenty of buyers looking for grain to buy. Grades of wheat, barley, canola, sorghum, lupins and oats traded across 13 port zones in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. If you have grain to sell and a price in mind, no matter what grade it is or site it is warehoused, have it out there on offer on CGX. You're anonymous, you're protected by secure settlement if it sells, and your grain can only sell at or above the price you offer it for sale. You're in complete control. 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.
