TOPIC: Hold out for a possible higher price, or sell now with prices dropping?

Re:Hold out for a possible higher price, or sell now with prices dropping? 6 years 4 weeks ago #15045

Castle is very truthful in what he is telling you. You can't make the Asians buy it, especially for a high price.
I'm a small KY. dealer and my buyers advised me to drop the price but instead of making people angry I quit buying,maybe for the season.
So, I guess it boils down to this. If you can get $425 to $450 do you sell or take a chance on holding it for more. That is your decision.

I think some dealers on here want to keep everyone thinking negative on the prices. If you dont like others paying more than you, raise your prices or quit buying.

So who thinks that prices will only drop the remainder of the year, and who thinks that we will see higher prices before the year's end?

I agree with you lenno, it's funny to sit back and watch people discuss the prices of sang, I've noticed, which i think you have too. I can tell from each post if it's a dealer or digger. Dealers always putting down sang hope'en to dis-heart diggers into sale'en thier sang at a cheap low price. Which i'm sure some diggers has sold thier sang already because of it, I dont have a TON of it, but 16lbs is enough for me to sit back and just watch it, and if it doesn't reach a good price i'll just hold over til next year, I know i'm not going to sale mine for 350-400lb so the dealers can end up making double that much :)

You guys are really missing the whole issue. Seriously.

I make more money when the price is rising, goods are moving and I'm buying and turning the goods over quickly. This year isn't like that. Goods are not moving.

One thing is clear, you all don't want to hear what is really going on. Good luck with that outlook.

Or, maybe they are only reporting what is really happening with no hidden motives at all. That's a pretty large leap to suggest you know what someone's motivation is.

Mark, if you decide to hold over, be sure to get your ginseng certified or otherwise recorded so you won't get in trouble.
