Plow Horse Markets Keep Plowing Along

November 4, 2017 05:12 AM

In spite of better weather in South America, there hasn't been a real collapse in soybeans, says Jerry Gulke, president of the Gulke Group. They’re still higher than two months ago and the corn is in a sideways trading range.

“The markets seem to be buying time and price movement to try to break out of a sideways trading environment,” Gulke says.

Beans have been in an upward channel for 10 weeks now but we aren’t making huge gains.

“That’s indicative of a sideways market," says Gulke. We need something fundamentally to happen to change the attitude of the markets, a black swan event, as he puts it. Unfortunately, that's something we aren’t expecting to happen.

Listen to the full report above.
