    You Can’t Always Get What You Want

    Aug 10, 2018 03:13 PM

    As you know by now, I have pretty eclectic tastes in music, leaning toward first generation rock with other genres mixed in. On report days, the old (1969) Rolling Stones tune You Can’t Always Get What You Want tends to pop into my mental jukebox. Here’s the refrain:

    Making Money

    Aug 03, 2018 03:50 PM

    After our column last week about Taught Not to Lose Money, this week was all about making money. If you are a grain producer/marketer and have lifted most of your hedges, this was good week. Wheat futures were very “buoyant” including a day where they were briefly 35 cents higher. For the week, corn, beans and wheat all posted nice gains. The rumor mills were working overtime on China, Ukraine, tariff and other news, but the bottom line is that you just have to follow the money.

    Taught Not To Lose Money

    Jul 27, 2018 04:25 PM

    What do you need to do about all this? You can’t react as fast as the algos, but you also can’t ignore them. Nor can you just skip hedging, because your cash market is also affected by the price movement. You need to know where the market is likely to go (Brugler tools like Price & Probability Forecasts or Techno-Fundamental price targets are excellent) in your time window and be prepared to pull the trigger (or ignore the dip) when news and the electronic trading drive prices to extremes.

    Back in Black

    Jul 20, 2018 03:38 PM

    After a week with most of our table in red, it is kind of refreshing to be back in black for most of the ag commodities this week. These aren’t paltry gains, either, with some 4% plusses in there. Some of this should be attributed to garden variety profit taking after major declines. The broader market environment saw some big moves as well.

    Malnourished Bulls

    Jul 13, 2018 03:22 PM

    In last week’s intro, I talked about the Friday rally being a ‘sell the rumor, buy the fact’, but left you with a warning about malnourished bulls. The exact quote was “The bulls have been starving and may or may not be able to walk in a straight line!” This was a reference to money flow. After an extended decline, speculators and even commercials who have been on the long side of the market have seen their bank accounts drained.
