Marketline Report for Thursday, September 20th
SHELLADY ... "Can't really talk about the grains without talking about tariffs and although there hasn't been anything new as of late, it still weighs heavily on the market as it does other markets. You know, it's funny that the tariffs don't just effect grains. It effects everything from money to bonds to the like. So, we've got an issue where we've got this big elephant in the room and we have to deal with it. We just don't know how. I'll say this, it's not going to last forever. Jack Mah from Yahoo came on yesterday and says he thinks it could be up to 20-years. Well, you know what? Donald Trump, he doesn't have the patience for that, and he won't be in office either, but I think it's something we're going to get a little clarity on sooner than people think because I don't think that our economy and/or the Chinese economy can take a lot of it. So, keep that in mind."
