When corn prices flatten at under $3/bushel late last spring and no one was selling. Grain buyers ran the price of grain to above $4 in in several days in late June of 2016...but they had no intention of paying $4/bushel for their corn. They simply purchased a similar volume of corn at $4, short on CBOT, and ran the price down under $3 once again. What did they pay for their corn? That's right $3.
Farmers need to stay away from CBOT and keep the grain in on farm storage and demand $6 before selling 1 bushel. Then if corn drops below $5, shut off 100% of all corn sales until it rises above $6. Dabbling in CBOT is a way for the non-farmers to steal your grain and maybe even your farm.
Much like the facts surrounding "day traders" where it is said that 85% of them lose everything invested in 6 months. If the grain is in your bins....they must pay a profitable price or live without the grain. Let them feed their chickens, turkeys, egg layers and hogs grass and see how that works.
