Strength, and Buying Power
Last Tour Days, Then Sub
sequent Downward Trend
Eclipses Previous Low Records.
(Ry Charles C. Browne, of overWeck
it Cooke Co.)
The expected rebound of prices In
the leading market for wheat mater
ialised, Immediately following the sen
sational decline which temporarily cul
minated lute last week. The strength
and buying power lasted four duys.
Fifteen cents a bushel was added to
(he price before the bull ammunition
was exhausted. Many of the over.
confident bears had been forced to buy
In their short commitments as the
market advanced against them. The
absence of this class of buying was
keenly missed, when subsequently the
main downward trend of the market
asserted Itself and liquidation again
became urgent. Wheat valuee have
broken off eclipsing the low records
established on the previous decline, or
the lowest thus far since the war.
Sugar and cotton, likewise are sinking
to new low-price records, day by day.
Surplus Only Fair
The overwhelming Influence in tho
readjustment or deflation of practical
ly all commodities, which is a natural
sequence of the Inflation Incident to
the great war. Undoubtedly wheat
prices would have slui.-.ped 8 year ago
had the remains of a luxury wave and
the I'. S. $2.22 guarantee not Inter
vened. The world Is largely free of
high-priced fear, and are buying lei
surely. World's wheat surpluses are
cr.ly fair, and at normal prices anl
satisfactory financial conditions
abroad, any accumulation of stocks
would ride lightly on the public specu
lative shoulders, pending such time as
the consumptive requirements will
overtake the available supply. Latent
reports indicate that the grain growing
countries of the Southern hemisphere
have all but secured bountiful crops;
India, Australia and Argentina are
already preeslng wheat for In import
ing countries. . bHtlsh wheat stocks
are now 33,0O,O)0 or 21,000,00 over
last year. Fortunately the (Tester
part of the surplus wheat of the V.
S. has already been expo.-ted or sold
for export. It Is estimated that not
over 40,000,000 bushels available for
export now remains unsold. This
relatively small quantity, If sold
abroad, must come Into competition in
the world's markets, with financially
distressed countries. Worse than that
musts-be sold to importing countries
whose money exchanges have collaps
ed In this country. Current financial
anxiety in this country, the increase
of unemployment and the pronounced
business deprceslon, retards the arri
val of speculative support to stand in
tho breach and carry the burden,
in Hi union Knurimms
The most depressing factor at the
present time, overshadowing the grain
,iuue is the impending movement of
record breaking corn crop. The
production is so enormous, and the
shipping and consumption demand so
negligible at this time, together with
the shrinkage of the hog and cattle
mentations. Indicating less than usual
will be consumed by feeders, forces the
belief that an unprecedented volume
nt com will be hedged in the Chicago
fclf. This acta as a great pall hanging
over toe market, and ' its influence
inon speculative sentiment Is extend
ed to all grain trading centers. This
largely accounts for the relapse 'now
in progress In the wheat trade. The
above conditions would suggest t""
corn will find Its lowest prices on the
crop, within the next threo weeks.
Pat history shows corn manes bottom
"ecords on bumper crops as a rule late
in November, or early Decern tier. In
other words the big crop and expected
heavy receipts are discounted by the
time the crop starts to move. At such
times is when the much abused spec
ulator performs a most valuable func
tion. The speculative public buys con
tracts for future delivery as an invest
ment thereby providing an unlimited
market for absorbing great accumula
tions of grain, while any other ade
quate demand Is non-existent.
CliaiiKO Kxpctted -
It Is believed the general business
tine will change for the better with
the coming of the new year. Buying
power in many lines, which has been
held in abeyance will probably break
loose, and psychology of a more opti
mistic character take hold, of the na
tion as the time approaches for the
Republican Administration to tako the
reins of government.
The security market is still much
depressed, and many good stocks and
bonds are undoubtedly on the bargain
counter. Liberty bonds suffered a '
Khnrp decline, due in part to the latest
offering by the V. S. Government of
short term treasury certificates bear
ing 6 J-4 per cent Interest.
The fall In the market value of
liberty bonds has In turn Increased
the yield to an attractive figure for the
premier investment from the stand
point of safety. The unsettled condl
lotis g-enernlly has provided a rare op
portunity for the investment of funds
in Issues of unquestioned merit. It is
not reasonable to expect the preeent
high yield based on depressed market
values to continue. Prices may even
'io lower, but this country Is not go
ing to the bow-wows or the Bolsheviks.
