Troy understand what will occur if Corn and Soybeans stay at this level. Farmers will reduce their risk... meaning they will not spend as much in inputs (fertilizer). Meaning they will grow LESS. Meaning the market will go up. Its not all "bearish" if you actually read in the report... China is why the world stock report went up. China doesnt import or sell corn really so who cares. Ethanol number and higher then ever... and a lot of cows are around and they eat corn. Bulls I'd buy the corn... soybeans wait to see what is happening with South America. I dont see beans tanking but i dont necessarily see them getting better

The acres are going up next year significantly what analysts are saying. The discovery is too see how low corn can go, whether 2.25, 2.50, 2.75, 3.00 or 3.25, but one of those price points will be reached. Commercials are about to go positive and the funds to go negative, and that means there is still 2 or 3 months down for corn. You mentioned South America which is going gangbusters. You mentioned China. China does matter, because they have to buy from somewhere. The best thing you could do to see why I have been right all along is look at a 100 year chart of corn, and you will notice we have quite a ways down to go. Massive oversupply. It doesn't have to go down to the 2000 lows of 1.75, but it should definitely flirt with $3 and $2.75 for the final bottom, maybe 2.50. Just think of all the corn that is going to come back online for Europe. Ending stocks ranges 15-20%. We just jumped over 20% so this is going to *******corn. When this happened back in 1987 and 2000 created new lows.

If the surplus remains next year... what will occur is this LOWER PRICES... BUT farmers will produce less corn Meaning the surplus will dwindle... furthermore Americans have something in their back pocket... ethanol production. IF the US wants to get rid of Corn quick watch out they will suddenly burn through it quick with Ethanol. Simply put the Farmer and the United States will stop Corn from going below $3 because if it does many banks and farmers will go broke

Farmer will not produce less corn. We are expecting 4-5 million bushels more in 2016 even at these lower prices. And demand is not there. There are too many other food sources in the world. Ethanol is barely budging. Of course I will be right again, and you still won't listen to me. When corn goes below $3 it doesn't do it for the long term. It might only last a few weeks or months and that will be the last we see of it. But it is definitely going below $3. That is the nature of price discovery.

Unsure what your background is but this is the reality... This Summer several farmers let their ground go dormant and took "prevent plant" insurance payments because in their opinion they would make more money not planting it then if they had a average crop. So knowing that what do you think will happen if Corn goes below $3 since thats what they did when corn was above 3.50??
Troy Brooks

Ending stocks have to go down. They are way too high an all time high. Stocks to usage are too high. The only way for that to happen is for price to go down. Whether to prevent plant or some other grain. Corn is trying to blip higher but it just can't do it, so the next leg is about to drop and the funds will gladly help out pushing it down. You will be wrong. Throwing corn in the bin is going to dig yourself a bigger hole. SELL NOW. Oil is going to stay low for the next decade because of global fracking. Costs are coming down. Rents are coming down. Can't you feel it intuitively we are going to see $3.20-$3.40 corn by the end of Dec. at the latest and then under $3 in 2016. No more bean on bean.

The worse thing that could possibly have happened was for ending stocks to make all time new highs, and that is exactly what we got. We will go below $3 in 2016, but by Dec. 31, 2015 we should hit $3.00 to $3.30. Farmers are digging themselves an even bigger hole by not selling corn when they had the chance near $4. They could have locked in great futures prices for years, now they are screwed. Greed. Now they have to produce even more corn to make what they made last year. The hurt has just begun and commercials are profiting off of it.
