"It scares me more regarding my 401(k) retirement program than it does about agricultural exports," O'Neil said.
The bedrock reason for this is pretty simple: China doesn't grow enough food to feed its ever growing population.
"Number one concern in China is food security," O'Neil said.
"So regardless of the strength or weakness of their currency, the Chinese government first and foremost will do everything possible to maintain food security."
China does manipulate the market to protect its domestic producers, O'Neil says, obstructing U.S. corn and cotton exports.
But O'Neil says that high-protein soybeans, which Chinese meat producers need to feed their livestock, are another matter.
"Things are always in a state of change when you are talking about China," said O'Neil.
Jay O'Neil has 40 years of trading and management experience in the grain industry.
