Grain Elevator Outlook 2018/2019November 2018 - Will Secor
- Trade disruptions and large fall crops have had the biggest impacts on grain markets so far this year.
- The U.S.-China trade dispute has impacted soybeans most this year with carry widening and basis weakening significantly.
- Corn and wheat fundamentals support basis strengthening this year, while carry in the future’s market will provide a reasonable return to storage.
- Transportation costs are largely in line with historical averages. However, elevators heavily dependent on trucking will face diesel price and trucker availability risks.
