Soybean Target Price Hit 01/28/2022

The high on March soybeans today is $14.79, one cent above my recommended sale on 100% of your old crop beans.

As with, corn when it traded $6.24 last week, I do not think this is the top in the beans, but maybe I am wrong, maybe a political Black Swan event will happen, maybe half the hogs in China will die of ASF, maybe all the chickens in the Southeast die of bird flu, maybe...

If I am right and old crop beans exceed $16.50 this spring or summer, you can buy put options whenever and where ever the top is and ride the market down, making the money with the put option you did not make on the way up with the beans in the bin or on a basis contract.

Why take a chance? Sell the beans, lock-in your floor at no cost.

Besides that, the return to storage in most localities does not cover the cost of storage.

Now, go make an informed marketing decision that is right for your operation.

I have been recommending pricing 2021 soybeans at $14.78 on the spot (nearby) month since the second week of July. Below is what i sent you Wednesday morning:
