Edwards Market Thoughts

1/21/20 8:00am

Here is a look at July futures, the chart is showing 2018, 2019 and current. One would have to think that unless we see issues on weather in South America, or more export info out of China talks, this market could continue in a sideways trade until March/April. I really believe a person should take some time and look at the second chart showing the amount of time December Futures trades above $4.00 and or $4.20 in the last 5 years. Siouxland offers programs that allows you to take advantage of these opportunities!!! 


If anyone is planning on going up to the Sioux Falls Farm Show this week, Siouxland Energy has a booth this year so make sure to stop by. The show is Jan 22nd through the 24th. We will have free popcorn and some other fun items for you to take home with you..

Nice to see the market bounce back like it did on Friday, It has gotten us back to where the Min/Max Plus Contract can lock you into a $4.16 to $4.20 CN21 floor with upside to around $4.40 to $4.50. Looking back at the last 5 years price data the frequency of the CZ futures to trade above $4.00 is only 16%,  and to trade above $4.20 is only 8%. So maybe not that bad of an idea to start getting some coverage on at $4.20 or better.

Letter to President Trump!


Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Time is running out, and we need to YOUR help TODAY.

America’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is critical to revitalizing struggling farm economies, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and protecting the climate. But Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exemptions to oil companies have destroyed demand for billions of gallons of U.S. biofuels. President Trump vowed to restore lost gallons, but the current EPA proposal only accounts for a fraction of the demand destroyed by the agency’s unprecedented use of oil refinery waivers. We MUST demand action NOW before it’s too late.


Join us TODAY in calling on President Trump to take action now to reopen biofuel plants and revitalize markets for America’s farmers.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
