Dan O'Brien provides notes from his weekly review of grain markets on the K-State Radio Network.
K-State grain market economist Dan O'Brien remarks on another impressive week for the grain markets, triggered once more in large part by bullish fundamentals in the corn market...he suggests that things may be lining up for a counter-seasonal post-harvest rally in the wheat market, saying that wheat growers should be ready to capitalize on that, if it materializes.
This interactive tool can be used to examine historical weekly nearby basis for corn, grain sorghum (milo), soybeans, and wheat for various locations in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, and parts of Colorado and Texas. Basis is calculated by subtracting the nearby futures price from the cash price (Wednesday), where nearby is defined as the futures contract closest to expiration without going into the delivery month. Basis captures the effects of local supply and demand, as well as transportation costs, on commodity prices.
