By Wylie Parker and Layernj Holiricld A. G. Edwards and Sons, Inc. The problems which plague the general economy continue to weigh on the commodity futures markets. Tight and expensive money is taking its toll whether it is forcing Japan to sell more copper or inducing domestic grain users to carry low inventories. From various segments of the commodity-using world are coming reports of a desire to keep inventories at workable levels but not to build speculative inventories in anticipation of possible higher prices. The forces which have helped to create these conditions apparently are still present. There has been no overt change in monetary policy. President Ford has indicated no desire for wage and price controls. Other officials have effectively removed the threat of export controls from most minds. Secretary Bntz has pointed out that a significant portion of the undelivered export sales are lo undisclosed .destinations which probably indicates transactions designed to get something on the books in event of export controls rather than bona fide export sales for foreign buyers. THE PRESIDENT has also indicated no major changes in economic policy until his economic "summit" at the end of September, which effectively means things will continue as they are for another four weeks -- not at all encouraging to the bulls. The prospects for this fall are interesting for grains in this context. With money the way it is, country elevators and end- users will not be as aggressive in bidding grain away From the farmers as they might otherwise be in face of the low production levels. The question isually asked at this time of year is "Who is going to carry he crop?" The answer this year seems to be a resounding vote in favor of the farmer. Farmers are expected to be light holders anyway this fall, but what is different from, some other years s that there may not he anyone attempting lo compete with them. The result could be markets which are firm since producer sales are restricted but not strong since the buying is only keyed to current needs rather than the building of inventories. FARMERS HAVE not been particularly concerned a b o u t the recent dfop in wheat prices if their sales are any indication, 'he tone of the wheat market las been helped by a good level of activity in world wheat rade. USDA estimates that the People's Republic of China wil take .5 million tons more whea than earlier bought. Reports o tro^t in Canada provided a brie rally. The wheat market ha moved in a tantalizing tradin range for some weeks now Historical performance indi cates that wheat prices can advance at this time of the year only under the most unusua circumstances. These do no seem to be present this year In view of the weakness pervading all commodities, we are now thinking that the breakou) 'rom this range could occur on Ihe downside rather than the .inside. The oil market came tumbling down. Meal advanced. Soybeans, caught between the two, were erratic. Meal buyini las largely commercial air professional. The latest statistics indicate a huge visible in ventory of meal on top of a rumored large invisible inven- ory. We do not expect the meal strength to persist in view of he reduced sense of urgency over soybeans, good fishin^ conditions in Peru, and the weak livestock and poultry out' ook. OIF, CONTINUES to be priced out of the world market. Much Business being done today by foreign buyers would normally come our way but is now going n other directions. At home, are reports of demand problems at the wholesale and retail levels for products made with vegetable oils, Inventories, are now adequate and until this condition cnanges or our price ^ets in line with .the world market, we see littla upside opportunity. Of course, the outlook for both products hinges on the soybean crop. An early frost or wet harvest or reduced esti-. mates based on past damage, could all serve to give the market a new lease on life.. However, the price level h a s dropped considerably from the,. contract highs and even a good;, rally would not have to break,; into new high ground. The statistical picture in soybeans is, such that highs could be seen next year under certain circum.-' stances but traders should n o t ' concern themselves with such, daydreams at the present time. $10,000 Winner We offer a complete stock of lumber and building supplies, home appliances, plumbing supplies, Jacuzzi pumps, Benjamin Moore's paint, Tomco asphalt shingles, hardware, home lighting fixtures, field fence.
