Gulke: SA Weather Still On the Minds of Traders

January 27, 2018 04:58 AM

On the heels of the Top Producer Seminar, Jerry Gulke, president of the Gulke Group, says the overall mood of farmers seems to be fairly positive considering the current economic aspects in agriculture. The excellent yields farmers experienced last year seemed to somewhat mute the effects of cheap prices; however, several concerns remain. 

South American weather is among those concerns as Argentina remains dry and Brazil is too wet. Gulke says with South American weather currently on the minds of traders it might be overshadowing the short-term concerns of too much corn and soybeans in stock as their weather can still change things considerably in the next 60 days.

  Jerry It's all about 70 trillion in US credit market debt that's more than all other world country's combined. The European Central Bank using China's Yuan for it's reserve and dumping the US dollar, which has put the US dollar in a free fall devaluation spiral of death. The news was Davos last week were Daddy Donald pounded his chest saying AMERICA FIRST, AMERICA FIRST. The Chinese and the Russians were laughing wondering where Donald was going to find all this money to pay off its 70 trillion in credit market debt. Reagan said we would out spend them to win the cold war, but they out smarted us and won the money war.
