Trade stats for last week

  • 12 buyers bought through CGX - more searching
  • 12 grades traded
  • 4 commodities traded - wheat, barley, canola, chickpeas
  • 6 port zones traded around Australia
  • 2 seasons traded - 18/19 and 17/18

Another relatively diverse week for grain trading last week, although wheat in WA took up a larger proportion of trades this week. Again barley was in strong demand, particularly malt varieties through out Portland and Geelong zones, and Kwinana zone in WA. Buyers were again bidding strongly for canola throughout Victoria, resulting in solid trades above the best public numbers which is welcome news in the canola market at the moment.

If you have an offer in the market and are looking to sell soon, adjusting your offer price closer to public bids and giving your offer time to attract demand is likely to be a more profitable strategy than being a forced seller at cash values.

Receive realtime SMS’s of trades in your port zone of any grades you have on offer. This will keep you updated of nearby trading activity and provide you with REAL trade data so you can quickly make informed adjustments to your offers to give them the best chance of trading at your number.

See below examples of trades last week well above the best public bids on the day. If growers didn't have their grain on offer, they may never had known it had the potential to trade at the price they wanted. 

There is no downside in having your warehoused grain on offer - It's free to offer and you can edit or cancel your offer at anytime before it trades.

By having your offer out there on Clear Grain Exchange you will receive notifications of 'trades' of the same grade and location as your offer so you can monitor the real market (rather than public bids), and remember you are anonymous - so don't feel silly about putting your price out there no matter how optimistic it may be!

About Clear Grain Exchange

Clear Grain Exchange is an independent online platform where grain sellers can offer their grain, at their price, in an open market to all buyers. If the grain trades, a secure settlement process ensures sellers don't lose title until they're paid, within 7 days. Grain buyers benefit from more efficient accumulation given they are able to view parcels of grain ready for sale in a firm and live market. The exchange also ensures a robust paper trail of all orders and transactions. At time of settlement, appropriate levies, end point royalties, and any applicable fees associated with the storage provider are deducted, cutting down the paperwork into one simple transaction. Our aim is to foster competition at the farm gate and ultimately improve returns by creating an efficient market where all supply chain participants benefit. Think of Clear Grain Exchange as the share market for Australian Grain.
