With harvest resuming and frost not seeming to have affected the late crop enough to have impacted prices, we are moving along a number of sales before a potentially very poor pricing and delivery system sets itself up through October and into November.
Looks as if Green Lentils have peaked and we are finishing up sales at what is the highest price a #2 has ever traded and and upside therefore much more limited than downside.
We are also moving along Canola, Durum sales but not finishing either quite yet as we feel there are a couple of Bullish tailwinds that could set up in the winter but note that they thesis for each is thin and anyone wishing to wrap sales on Durum are welcome to.
Sales Recommended this week: Green Lentils finished up. Canola Yield Bump Plus sale and Durum moved along.
