Trade on likelihood not hope

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Have we hit the market low?Many wonder if the market low has passed because markets frequently rally going into October. I’m not sure for several reasons.There are hints that China may start exporting some corn for the first time in 10 years.Harvest is starting slower than usual. Friday I drove from Lincoln, Neb. to Minneapolis and was surprised with how few acres were harvested along I-80 and I-35. I get a sense the market hasn’t been affected much by harvest pressure.Yields are expected to be big this harvest. In fact, some elevators in the western Corn Belt have already started limiting dumping hours.While many farmers are very reluctant to sell at current levels, some landlord shares may get sold across the scale, which may push prices lower in the next few weeks. Harvest reportsCorn is drying fast in the field. Within a week moisture levels on our farm went from 20% to below 15%. Harvest is about 50% over our farm but probably only 20% for most of the Midwest.Corn yield reports can be best described as “variable” in South Dakota, Nebraska, and Ohio. Most clients tell me their yields are exceeding August estimates. As for beans, the word “record” is being used a lot. Guessing or managingMany farmers tell me they do well at picking prices. Maybe some do, but many do not. If farmers were good at predicting prices, most would have sold their 2015 crop for over $4 and would have their 2016 crop already sold for $4.25. However, most farmers didn’t get $4 for their 2015 corn and few have much 2016 sold. Sadly, many farmers are fooled into thinking they are good at guessing prices, when in actuality they probably have been lucky.Some farmers have the misconception that I try to predict prices and sell at the high. Unfortunately, I don’t know when the market will be at its highest. And here’s the thing: no one else knows either.Instead I try to “manage” the market. What does this mean? Know your breakeven points and be prepared to sellSince I don’t know where the market will go, I need to be prepared to sell all the time. That way I can take advantage of opportunities when they become available. The key is knowing your breakeven points and selling when the market hits adequate profit levels, because this may end up being the top of the market. Every time I sell, I actually hope it’s the worst of the year. Consider all scenariosI set up trades based upon what is likely to happen, not what I hope will happen. While I always hope the market goes higher, I know for sure it won’t stay at the top. The prices from five years ago won’t be available in most years. For instance, the last time futures were $4.50 was two years ago. It’s been three years since corn hit $5. Therefore, since $5 corn has happened so infrequently in the last three years, I need to be realistic that it may not happen again for a while.Nevertheless, I’m still a farmer that needs to make a profit and I will always have more grain to sell. Therefore, I optimize my grain marketing strategy to take advantage of the market if it goes up, but also if it goes down. I even make trades where I profit if the market moves sideways. By taking into consideration multiple scenarios, I reduce my potential risk. Make a planIf you have any unpriced old corn, you need to create a marketing plan right now. In fact, if less than 50% of your new crop corn is unpriced you should sit down right now and develop a plan because you are adding more risk to your farm operation.A plan can be as simple as writing a note on your shop door that tells you to sell corn at desired levels. When that price comes, listen to yourself from the previous months and remember you always have more corn to sell. Maybe not today, but for sure in 365 days you will.If you’re not sure what prices to write down, start with pulling the following numbers:Yields: Pull the average yields for the last three yearsExpenses: Pull the costs for fertilizer, equipment, seed, gas, etc. for the last three years. Other than fertilizer these costs don’t adjust much year over year on our farm (and even fertilizer changes don’t change overall expenses that much). Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.

US, EU Sign Beef Deal

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorOMAHA (DTN) — President Donald Trump and European Union officials signed an agreement Friday at the White House that will nearly triple the volume of duty-free beef exports to Europe over time.Trump made the announcement surrounded by members of his administration and representatives from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and U.S. Meat Export Federation. Trump said Europe had not been treating U.S. beef producers fairly.“This is a tremendous victory for American farmers, ranchers and, of course, European consumers because American beef is the best in the world,” the president said.Trump said duty-free beef exports to the EU will increase by 46%. Over seven years, they will increase another 90%. By full implementation, the president said, duty-free exports of U.S. beef will increase from $150 million to $420 million.The president used the event to stress his administration is standing up for farmers. He pointed to the ongoing trade dispute with China. He cited Japan now allowing U.S. beef from older cattle, as well as opening up beef markets in areas such as Morocco and Australia. And the president pointed to $28 billion in aid that has come from his administration because of retaliatory tariffs, largely from China.“They (U.S. farmers and ranchers) were targeted, and we took care of our farmers and ranchers,” Trump said, adding farmers are “great patriots” that are “always targeted first” in trade disputes. “They are always targeted, but we take that target off their backs.”The agreement, which has been in the works for months, allows the U.S. a guaranteed portion of duty-free access into the EU for hormone-free beef. The American Farm Bureau Federation highlighted reports back in March that the agreement was close to being finalized.Jennifer Houston, president of NCBA, said it was great day for American cattle producers, and she thanked Trump for making the agreement happen.“For years, it has been difficult for us to get access to the European Union because of some non-tariff and restrictive tariff trade practices,” Houston said.Sen John Hoeven, R-N.D., spoke about access to markets and credited the president and his team for increasing market access, as well as providing more direct aid to producers.“USDA and the administration are standing up for our farmers while they are negotiating these kinds of agreements,” Hoeven said.Europe and the U.S. have battled over hormones in beef since the late 1980s, which included a case before the World Trade Organization that the U.S. won but the European Union failed to abide by. The EU then pushed for another WTO case against retaliatory measures put in place by the U.S. and Canada because the EU would not recognize science that made Europe’s ban on hormone treatments unjustifiable.The U.S. exported $8.3 billion in beef in 2018, of which the European Union accounted for roughly 3.5% of foreign sales. For the first five months of 2019, sales to the EU have totaled $80.6 million, down about 10% in value from last year, according to USDA data posted on the U.S. Meat Export Federation website.In 2009, the U.S. and EU reached a memorandum of understanding for a new tariff rate quota of hormone-free beef, with the U.S. agreeing to drop retaliatory tariffs against Europe as well.U.S. beef exports to the EU hit $272 million in 2015, but have declined since then, AFBF stated in its analysis. Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay each export more beef to Europe than the U.S., which often competes with Australia for the fourth ranking. By value, the U.S. accounts for about 9% of EU imports.Europe has two tariff rates for beef. One allows 45,000 metric tons of beef without a duty, but has no individual country carve-outs. A second quota allows 66,826 metric tons under a 20% tariff, of which the U.S. and Canada have a combined allocation of 11,500 metric tons.Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, applauded Friday’s announcement in a statement.“This agreement will provide some relief to American ranchers during an uncertain trading atmosphere,” Roberts said. “I appreciate the administration acting on my decades-long persistence in pushing for greater access for U.S. beef in the EU. I look forward to the upcoming EU Parliament vote to seal this deal.”Chris Clayton can be reached at Chris.Clayton@dtn.comFollow him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(AG/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Former Nebraska Star RB Lawrence Phillips Describes Prison To HS Coach, “It Is Completely Nuts In Here”

Unsurprisingly, not great. Thanks to USA Today Sports, we’ve gotten an inside look at what Phillips’ life at Kern Valley State Prison in Delano, Calif., is like. The media group obtained letters that Phillips wrote to some of his high school coaches. Here are some excerpts from his letters: We have been in lock down about 80% of the time. You would be surprised at what these altercations are about! Nonsense! But when your world is this small all one has to care about is nonsense. That is why I do not want any of these idiots in the cell with me.All they they want to do is the drugs, make knives and make alcohol. Then they say when they get out they will not come back. I tell them of course you will. You are doing the same thing that got you locked up. Of course they do not want to hear that. It is like speaking to a brick wall.—-I do not have a cell mate. All of these dudes want to use drugs and (illegible) weapons in the cell. I’m in the process of applying for single-cell status. I will let you know how that goes.—–Well, there is nothing new happening here. We are still locked down. One of the guards was assaulted so it may be awhile. Coach D, this place is a jungle. Trouble everywhere. One must swallow his pride constantly or one will always be in the hole. But we must deal with the situation we put ourselves in.Terrifying.

NAFTA A summary of where talks stand

first_imgMONTREAL – Here’s a summary of where the NAFTA talks stand after a week-long round in Montreal. The round officially concludes Monday with meetings between the political ministers leading the negotiations for Canada, Mexico and the U.S.Chapters: A chapter on anti-corruption measures was concluded in Montreal. Officials from one country say chapters on telecommunications and digital trade are also more than 90 per cent done.Autos: The countries have begun a real dialogue. Previous rounds saw acrimony over a U.S. demand that 85 per cent of a car’s parts be North American — a major increase from the current 62.5 per cent requirement — and 50 per cent be American to avoid a tariff. Some in the auto sector called that idea so unworkable it would induce companies to move to Asia and simply pay the import tariff. At this round, Canada proposed a major overhaul: include the value of intellectual property in the calculation, instead of just parts, thereby inflating U.S. numbers while being less disruptive to the industry. The countries are now analyzing how such formulas could work, and the idea has been turned over to political decision-makers in the U.S. and Mexico for their input.Chapter 11: The Americans want it to be voluntary for countries to participate in the investor-state system, which allows companies to sue countries for discriminatory treatment. The U.S. has suggested it might want to opt out of the system, arguing that it provides assurance for investors outsourcing operations to Mexico. This is not to be confused with the Chapter 19 system, which handles fights over punitive duties, on cases such as softwood lumber — the Americans want that gone entirely. At this round, the Chapter 19 irritant was largely avoided. But the Canadians and Mexicans worked out a proposal on Chapter 11. Their idea would essentially sideline the Americans, creating a new investor-state system that applies only to them. Under the Canadian proposal, backed by Mexico, the U.S. would be prevented from participating in or developing the rules of the new system: “We basically said to them, ‘If you want to opt out that’s fine, you’re gone,”’ one non-American said.Sunset clause: The U.S. has proposed a clause that would automatically terminate NAFTA every five years, unless renewed by all three countries. The other countries called that unworkable, and a constant chill on investment, akin to placing an automatic-divorce clause in a marriage license. In November, the Mexicans proposed turning this termination clause into a review clause — meaning it would force regular reviews of how the agreement is working, but not threaten automatic termination. They pointed out that NAFTA already has a termination clause, which countries are free to use. The Canadians offered new ideas at this round for how the review clause might work. One suggestion is for NAFTA’s central body, the Free Trade Commission, to produce regular updates on how the agreement is working.Dairy: The U.S. wants to end, within a decade, Canada’s supply-management system, which limits imports on milk, cheese and poultry, and sets minimum prices. The U.S. also wants to end a special program, known as Class 7, which lets Canadian producers sell certain cheese-making proteins at lower worldwide prices, squeezing out some imports from Americans who have an excess supply. This politically sensitive file, which touches rural ridings especially in central Canada, tends to get pushed down to the wire in trade negotiations. Sources say Canada has not made any counter-offers in Montreal.Labour: No dramatic developments. In the U.S., Democrats have just published a letter urging their country to demand far higher labour standards from Mexico. While calling this week’s discussions excellent in general, a Democratic congressman in Montreal, Bill Pascrell, said his enthusiasm has been dampened by a lack of progress on labour, and by what he views as Mexican nonchalance. “I don’t think they get it,” he said. But Mexico says it agrees with higher standards; new labour and environmental chapters in NAFTA; new worker protections; tougher enforcement of existing laws; and combating imports tied to child labour. It disputes the suggestion that it’s avoiding the issue. It also says that NAFTA is an inappropriate place to push for wage guarantees, as wages are a function of myriad domestic economic conditions. Canada has also proposed ending right-to-work laws in the U.S., which is viewed as a non-starter by the Americans.Buy American: The U.S. wants limits on how many public contracts can be won by its free-trade neighbours. In October, it proposed limiting Canada and Mexico to one dollar of contracts for every dollar in contracts granted by Canada and Mexico to American companies. The other countries declared this a non-starter. Sources say there was no major engagement on this at the Montreal round.What’s next: Future talks are slated for late February in Mexico, then for Washington a month later. It’s unclear what happens next. Mexico has a presidential election in July and the next president gets sworn in in December, while the U.S. will have national congressional elections in the fall. U.S. President Donald Trump has a decision to make by about March: start cancelling NAFTA, keep negotiating, or pause until the fall. The new engagement at this round has some insiders hoping he might avoid cancelling the deal. Officials from one country speculated this week that talks might continue through 2018, despite the elections.last_img read more
