Co-Ag Farm

Recently there have been many questions about wether or not an HTA contract is feasible right now....so let's find out.
Starting today, I sold 1 (5000bu) September 2014 Chicago (ZWU14) futures contract at 6.14, cash today was at 6.85.  That gives me a starting basis point of +71.  Today's nearby basis is +1.18.  If the Septemeber basis runs to anything close to that number it will be great, and will add to what would have been a 6.85 cash sale.   However, if the basis goes the other way it will be taking away from what would have been a 6.85 cash sale, and if it goes negative it will really hurt!

I'll also do the same with a December 2014 Chicago contract (ZWZ14) sold at 6.29, cash at 6.95 with a +66 starting basis to see is the later months fare any better or turn out worse. 

*UPDATE*
Today I locked the basis on the DEC HTA contract at 1.53 positive basis, giving me a cash price of 7.82 far surpassing what I could have sold the cash for when I started the hedge.  So in this case, yes the HTA contract worked again, even while starting at a positive basis.  Would I do another today?  No.  Today's basis levels are much to high in my opinion with much more downside risk than upside potential. 


 I'll update weekly to track how this HTA contract is working out.

Take a look at the Co-Ag Farms J.V. Link to find out more.

Our Market Comments
Wheat futures closed up 4.   Wheat continues to catch little tailwind as more production worries start to arise in Russia. The Russian wheat crop has been planted, but extremely dry conditions in many key locations will leave the seedlings extremely underdeveloped before heading into more harsh winter conditions. Remember, last year it was the big rains prior to and just after planting that helped develop a huge crop.

Pea & Lentil bids -  05/06/14 - Green/Yellow Peas and Pardina's are slightly up.  Regular Lentils are limited.  PL480 tenders - pricing continues on the low end.
