Don't Buy Into Multi-Year Market Lows

9/12/2014

With estimates of record-large crops and the largest corn and soybean ending stocks in nearly a decade, the USDA delivered a blow to the farm markets this week. For farmers, the question now becomes how long will this low-market environment last? Depending upon who you talk to, the answer to that question is as short as two years or as long as five to 10 years. David Hightower, owner of The Hightower Report, says farmers should be cautious about believing multiyear market lows are ahead.
