It’s not over ‘til it’s over

Futures pause after rally, but flood markets take time to play out. (Audio report)

Is the 2019 rally over? Probably not, if history is a guide. Years of extremely slow planting and flooding don’t happen often. But when they do the market’s pattern isn’t the typical “short spike, long tail” seen in drought years. Damage often isn’t known until harvest. So, just like the spring has been a long slog, get ready for a nervous market this summer. Farmers won’t be alone, because investors are just as anxious on Wall Street.

Knorr discusses overnight market moves with Pam Jahnke, Wisconsin Farm Report, and you can listen using the audio tool below.
