Welcome to Almira Farmers Warehouse Co.'s Grain information site!
4/17/14 AM HRW wheat belt weather looks to be slowly improving. This apparently is not sufficient news to halt futures ownership. Players are 'squaring up' before the long weekend. The Ukrainian/Russian rhubarb won't go away easily or soon. Daily reports of escalating tensions keeps the market focused on risk and possibility of a major shipping snafu. So far, Black Sea exports have flowed unabated; a condition that could be quickly altered. Wheat's weekly export sales report is offering addition support. The combined sales total of nearly 800,000 (old and new crop) exceeded industry expectations. SWW's export column showed top buyers to be: Malaysia, 18,000 Mt old crop and 20,000 Mt new crop; Japan, 19,800 Mt new crop; and, 'unknown' booked 100,600 Mt of new crop. Futures markets close at their regular times today and will be closed tomorrow. A regular reopening is scheduled for Sunday night.
Easter Holiday Three Day Weekend with no market Good Friday. The cash market will close today at 11:30 AM. Have a very Nice Easter. The futures market will re-open Sunday Evening.
