It's going to take a little bit of time, but eventually I suspect the wrinkles get ironed out and prices start to stabilize (I just don't think we are there yet). Producers should remain patient, keeping all soybean hedges in place, and use any extended "geopolitical" or "weather" related rallies to reduce additional long-term risk.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/grain-market-viewpoint"> Grain Market Viewpoint</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/will-weather-south-american-support-soybean-prices" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/will-weather-south-american-support-soybean-prices#comments Marketing Soybeans Forward Contracts Futures Hedge-to-arrive Hedges Marketing and Promotion Options Grain Market Viewpoint Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:37:00 +0000 94011 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Ag lenders concerned about soybean prices http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/marketing/ag-lenders-concerned-about-soybean-prices <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Low soybean, corn and wheat prices have ag lenders nearly as concerned as growers heading into the peak of harvest and 2015.
