    The Song is the Same

    Jan 11, 2019 03:18 PM

    We’ll use that as an illustration for our markets this week. The budget shutdown had the same status all week, which means we were missing USDA reports all week. However, as I have pointed out in the US/China trade dispute discussions, the supply and demand for the globe don’t leave the globe. Their song remains the same.

    The ag markets are getting yet another reminder about what happens when free-to-all USDA data is not available to the general public. With no USDA daily reporting system for export sales and no weekly Export Sales report, the public traders have to rely on the foreign buyers to confirm purchases.
