In our last letter, wo called special
attention to tho unsettled and dan
gerous conditions of tho speculative
trado growing out of tight inonoy and
unusual banking amdltlons. Wo
could not ndvlso short selling and
we felt sure thnt buyers could make
nothing by getting Into tho market
until financial affairs were more set
tled. Wheat prices capie to tho end of a
rather severo declino early today and
there wns a decided ellaiigg for the
better. Thero arc several good rea
sons for this. Gold engagements
have been very heavy and Chicago
will have $20,000,0'00 In yellow coin
fio the other side very soon. Now
York stocks today showed better
support and more confidence. For
tho past 48 hours foreigners bought
close to 1,500,000 bushels of wheat ou
this side. Thoie Is a spread of 2."o
or moio between Chicago nnd Liv
erpool market. .Thls Is about 7c
more than tho natural shipping dif
ference. Either tho foreign market
is too high, or ours Is too low. ,Ex
port clearances of wheat and flour
lure running about 700,000 bushels
a day. This country cannot continue
to supply Huiope with CO per cent.
of the total world's shipments with
out reducing the exortable surplus
greatlyvand laying tho foundation for
a much stronger market In tho near
future. Wo see now place buying
orders In wheat. If theso orders are
discretionary, wo can till them qu'ek-
ly on nn oversold spot in tho local
trado and thus Insure quicker and
moio certain profits. Wo saved a
gloat many of our followers from
losses tills week by keeping them
out of the maikot while conditions
wero risky. Now wo will bo just as
pleased to got the same people in
right for advancing market.
Thi powerful parking Interests at
last gained their point In forcing the
price or hogs to fl.OO. It Is usually
calculated thnt Ic a pound for lions
means 10c a bushel for corn. At this
tlmo last year corn wns much low
er and lions much higher. Under
present conditions, corn misers w'll
sell and ship more and feed less. Re
ceipts nro already lnoreablng. Money
matters aro against extensive east
ern or foielgn buying. Dccemhor
always brings a good run of corn
nnd In anticipation of this think
prices will bo forced considerably
lower. Tho present tlmo Is a very
favornblo one for opening accounts
with discretionary orders as ,tlie corn
can be sold nnd tho wheat bought
almost poultfvo Insurance against Ions
and yot a leasouablo chance for
profits In both markets.
Oats prices cannot long hold tin
closo around fiOc with so many In
dications that cprn will soon sell
back closo to that figure. In view
of tight money and light feodlng,
these course grains nro bound to
seek a lower level. OAR It
