Hedging Services for Farmers
Full Cycle Marketing Management
Farmers prefer to spend their time and energy on production, rather than on marketing their investments. There view is mostly fundamental, but not with a realistic approach that can be used in pricing or marketing their grain in the volatile world of commodities, let alone the knowledge of the risks associated with futures hedge programs, even the ones at the elevators. This is where my 40+ years trading soybeans and corn, currently a member of the Chicago Board Of Trade (CBOT) comes in. Let my 30+ years trading options (since their inception in Chicago) in agricultural and commodity futures trading experience work to help you market your products.
It is my opinion that I can provide the best strategy for your needs with my option knowledge and philosophy of using the markets to take the gamble away from your farm, instead of the risk (or gamble) involved without a sound marketing trade approach. Selling futures or calls is not the way to market your grain or livestock in today's world.
It is my opinion that my hedging philosophy, and consulting, is second to none. For independent farmers my goal is to help increase your net worth with relative certainty year after year. I market your products with insight and discipline from my decades of trading for myself, now assisting my clients, and plan a strategy based on THEIR thoughts, ideas, and needs; precision derived through superior trade execution services that I believe are second to none that even the biggest exporter on the CBOT trade floor can provide; and at the same time make it a learning experience for you.
