This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Analyzes How Russia is Impacting the Price of U.S. Wheat

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 18:36:23 CDT

This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Analyzes How Russia is Impacting the Price of U.S. Wheat  This week on SUNUP - Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson joins host Lyndall Stout, reporting on a recent rally in the markets that have since evaporated.


According to Anderson, lower HRW production in the US triggered a rally in the price of wheat recently. But foreign production seems to have been higher than expected, coming in at about the same level as last yearís record harvest.


As a result, the market adjusted to reflect the larger crops of countries like Russia and Ukraine. Perhaps even overcorrecting a bit.


Anderson explains that prices tend to act like a pendulum. He says when the market gets bad news, it swings back, often too far. Eventually, though, it will swing back the other way.


He says there was an initial psychological impact caused by this dip in prices, but is hopeful the markets will turn more positive in the days and weeks to come.


In the meantime, though, Anderson says as we approach the months of August, September and October when the trends of our marketing year are typically set - more information on the foreign crops will come in which will help markets gain better footing. He predicts there will likely be a bit of volatility but with the potential to gain back some of the $0.80 losses seen in recent weeks. He is optimistic prices will not go much lower.
