Now…I fancy some fertiliser

“I’m expecting more mean reversion and a $380-$420 price into 2023” – written in January 2022

This is when I started expressing concern about the parabolic price moves in Urea and advised to not chase it higher, in fact warning of a large mean reversion ahead.

Only a month earlier, I was correlating Diesel additive, AdBlue and its effects on the Urea price.

One year later, I had a follow up note reciting that call with this note,

then in January 2023 (only 4 weeks ago), I reprised my commentary that the price target of $380 has been seen (down from $900) and now Buying is on my mind.

Today, Middle East Urea futures are trading at $358….I’ll give it down to $345 before the first accumulating tranche…but it’s in the ballpark.

$293 may resemble a ’scorched earth’ scenario but a $65 (or 18%) entry variance should be tolerated considering a 65% correction has been seen within 11 months.
