inflation and china which is effecting all sectors in china, high prices in pork, soybeans and such will finally draw some more chinese business to the u.s., they have been aggressive buyers of soybeans all summer and that continued this week. and they will eventually buy u.s. corn also. high prices has been going on for a while but we were down early in the week but based on what jim said you have any disagreement with what causes this at this point in time and where are we going i guess is my question? >> it's a sweet spot for agriculture right now. there's so much demand for what is perceived as a diminishing supply. we will have less corn now than years ago so it will be hard to think we will not challenge the all time highs again sooner than later. you'll not predict that but you are saying -- or are you? >> the only thing that will derail the prices is a war somewhere or a stock market event. the supply demand are positive for the market for it to sink for any length of time. you get small corrections. 28-cents was all you got over a couple day period of time. it's such a bull mark

the rug out of that. the other change is china. this is the first time in 14 years that they have bought anything significant, and it is a big deal. it's a big deal for the industry because it's an unknown. and of course last week, jci they reported there was going to be another four to five -- that's 8 million tons total that they could buy. so it's the unknown of china and it's the big money coming in on one day for inflation then the next day they leave on did he leveraging. >> now that's his comments do you have anything to add to that? >> , i think bill did a terrific job of under scoring some of the top factors really providing at least a temporary floor for the market. just the notion as you look at the demand base on corn. when you look at the demand increasing here in 2010 and in 2011, we look at the export potential and you look at china. you don't know what that demand might be. but when you bring it all back, somewhere around 13.2, 13.3 billion bush he wills of corn use acknowledge we need a large crop here this fall. >> okay. you guys are talking off cam are and i was

every time the corn market dips china shows up. i think you have a real solid demand base and that's why it's like it is and i think that's just going to continue. >> very been talking about corn. is the same true about soybeans? somebody told held and made the argument that soybeans are better obviously than most people thought because they thought they weren't going it be good but we are raising more than we thought this year. >> lot of cases its expectations verses what the reality was. it was so hot and dry for so long. people's expectations were way down. as it's turning out bean harvest in most cases beat expectations, i don't know if we are up to average or what people are thinking on that -- on average i would agree that bean yields, are better than what was expected. >> will china be able to buy all the beans we grow? >> i don't know. i would have no idea but they have been buying a lot of them for a long time so i don't know why they would stop. they are in the process of trying to better everybody's diet. i don't think the conditions have changed. they have money, they wan

historically strong with the demand away from china but also on the other asian countries and the fact that the new brazilian argentine crops were not quite as big as we expected and just to respect that this corn crop could be could be underline a record and the fact of the demand is not quite strong as it is for for beans. brian you mentioned the funds what's the fund's position in corn right now is it surprising to youit's close to one hundred forty thousand contracts in that short and that's not a record but it is on the larger side of how short the day typically get i'm not surprised we're talking one hundred seven five bushel yield but i think with the trade needs to realize that if the usda happens to be wrong if they have to backpedal on the sealed and at this point a bean and his is better but corn demand is also side start to shrink the funds have to backpedal on pullout that's where you get an over exaggerated move to the upside brian have you been following this oil or oil prices much i mean we look we've seen a pretty nice up tick in in prices because of talks of the poten

beans. we have tight stocks. >> they said china and argentina got an agree meant that helped the bean oil price. it's really not helping the bean sales though. >> i hear they will pull the caps on canola oil and they are looking for corn in the september shipment. i think you will see -- they are hoping to get lucky on the weather. they are taking steps to make sure there is no grain. >> your concept on soybeans. >> we are washing out acres, the swollen mississippi river. probably not much of a change. probably seasonly lacks which is normal for this time of the year with south american production and got to remember they have a goodyear and worldwide soybean production would be up only about a percent ├žbut we aren't losing, supplies are tight and things could get exciting but if you step back and look at bean chart they have just been duking out, shadow boxing with the corn is looking like the shuttle liftoff. >> the next step i want to go to is talk about wheat at this time. i know -- talking about the world wheat situation, almost every country -- we have wheat in this country an

buying in china because of the soybean meal demand and the soybean oil demand because of the problems still in malaysia with palm oil production. so that demand is what is making a market move. and we saw that again today in the weekly sales report with huge number for this time of year for soybean oil exports. so it's that chinese demand. but when we look heading into january now, and we see some of the south american production come online, it seems like we're gonna have some intense competition where demand will not be able to continue at this pace. well because of planting beans so aggressive this year in montegroso, so they're gonna have about twenty five percent of the crop harvested earlier than normal. and that kind of t of soybean export window here. let's keep in mind that brazil because their supplies were tight last year, may not be as willing and aggressively selling early in the marketing year like the market's anticipating . their pipeline's starting and more empty than what it has in the past. there is going to be some domestic suction that'll happen that'll keep them

perform horribly as of late, and one of the reason is china will be out of the market because their banks are closed for the week. so you don't see the end-user by another the market, but as we go through next week i think our lows will be put in november the 30th crop report, and there's it pretty heavy seasonal waiting for beans to drop, and, i would by corn on the break. i think it's pretty good value here, especially after we have seen the snapshot of how low the yields are, i think they are between 141 and 145 for the national average. >>> and i think once china comes back and it's open, there are lots of soybeans. i think it will be okay. >> i think we will harvest less than without blue harvest this year but those are just guessed numbers and we won't know until we get to harvest. >>> we need to know whether we will have its supply or demand too much one way or the other. >> i would suggest right now that supplies would be in short order relative to demand. october should have some revised estimates on the harvested acreage and i agree with andy, i think contrary to what some

demand is a big fear issue. nobody knows. >> we are concerned we aren't seeing the china exports, into china over soybean. >> they aren't buying as much. >> they are slowing down and we are seeing problems, certainly if greece and italy fall and he with have more problems in the european union that will be a real knock for our demand for grains around the world. it's one world pot when it comes to grain. if the europeans aren't buying australian or german or whatever they can get chances are they aren't buying ours either. it's all playing into one big pot and that pot is the demand pot and that looks like it's lower. >> hear you talking act supply and demand. talking about grain, about use and that kind of thing. i know you -- you are talking account what happens to the outside. we probably should point out you are a speculator and don't represent other people in this but yourself. >> yes. i fund my own account. trade my own account and when i have an idea i put the trade on and seems like more times than not -- by the end of the year it usually works and the opportunity for a s

think will happen -- here is the problem -- the black sea area increase in wheat production, china wants morrissey verse ty in the feed supply and i think they will rely on wheat. we have to watch it. wheat will be the biggest competing for corn because of all the global wheat supplies. overall i don't -- the market below five, wheat can't compete above 7. we will raining bound in this new range. >> every year in the middle of the harvest we look to harvests go down. when that happens our international buyers look to the united states. china and the other country that need the products will they be buying as much at these low prices in. >> they did last time. they bought a lot of corn this summer on the last break we had, i would think that would show up again. i haven't heard they bought anything, that's usually what happens though. so -- yeah, demand shows up at lower prices. >> china, there is a lot of stories, china will be up between four to five million metric tons above expectations. i think over the next three weeks you will hear a lot of unknown sales and a lot of will be

market. if thine china for whatever reason quit buy -- if china for whatever reason quit buying any of our grain or sell some of it back to us as they have in the past, that could be a problem. one of the two things we need to focus on for the american farmer in 2011 is don't ask me how high prices are going to go this year. i can tell you, though, what prices are going -- where prices are going to go once they make those highs and those prices will go back under the cost of production within the next 12 to 18 months. it has always happened. in my opinion it always will happen because the market's job is to force out the inefficient producers. so when we get to some nice prices, whether it's by march 31st, maybe it's by january 12th in the first production numbers, the final numbers. when we get these great opportunities, you've got to protect it because at some point with everybody along we will force this thing back under the cost of production. now we could be $3 higher in beans or another dollar or two higher in corn before that happened, but the fact of the matter is when we do

think this past week has been a big wakeup call to the market place. just the mere fact that china has basically dipped their toe into this grain market here in the united states as far as corn is concerned tells me that from a trader's standpoint and a producer's standpoint we are going to go into spring and summer with a demand based mark and the depending on what supply factors hit that base we are going to go higher or lower. this market is different than what most people say. >> talking about demand, we were talking about china and talking about soybeans for the last couple of years. they have been buying all the beans they could get. they haven't bought corn for 4 or 5 years or so. that will make a difference if the demand increases; correct? >> the chinese corn crop last year was probably more in the neighborhood of more like a 140ish range. that is the number you want to listen to. the corn market over in the exchange told you that. the government wants control. >> the chinese government. >> yes. so the last thing they want to do is to buy corn. this is part of the social netwo
