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.

Soybeans: Oct 12-19

Recall early 2019 sentiment where global soybean supplies were projected to be massive? Since USDA made its first 19/20 projections in May-19, US crop slippage and sturdy demand has chopped off 14.5 MMT such that the former monstrous pile is now projected to be comparable to 16/17 and 17/18 size.

Price discovery is more than just about supply, but the cushion for additional supply adversity is gone, and we are now back to requiring normal 2020 crop sizes in South America and US.

More detail and perspective on what this means just done. If you would like more detail on this or on anything else in the reading room, please send me an email or can be reached by
