I make it a priority to
understand the
nature of your
business interests.


We all go through a process to make a pricing-decision. My job is to become your in-house research analyst, so that you have the best fundamental information to do your job better.

Everybody can access generic information and government or weather reports at the same time. What differentiates the research and distinguishes me are the contacts, style, delivery, approach and detail that are not readily available. There is so much information out there, but by focusing on what really matters and by leveraging observations, trends & opinion, decisions can then be made with confidence and less on emotion.

Lentils: May 18-19

Expectation of stronger India domestic pigeon pea and lentil price is my core forecast demand thesis. Exporter supply remains healthy this summer, an outcome that obviously will be influenced by Northern Hemisphere yield and quality. Politics, risk and financial composition means velocity of red lentil demand is to be metered, not in several 50,000t bulk vessels like before. That should suppress price volatility. If grain and oilseed prices are weak at harvest, and lentil yield/quality outcome is decent, interest by farmers to hit lentil bids should be modest.

More grind for now, yet if have cycle thinking........ If would like more detail on this or on anything else in the reading room, please send me an email or can be reached by
