Trading Agricultural Commodities

Pork bellies, live cattle, Durham wheat, weather forecasts from Brazil, price supports for exports to Asia. Welcome to the world of trading agricultural commodities. Trading agricultural commodities takes place under two general categories, agricultural (grains, and food and fiber) and livestock and meat. Agricultural commodities are traded in the commodities futures markets. Here is a sample of agricultural commodities and where they are traded:

It is often quite possible to profit from the news in day trading agricultural commodities. Traders often wait for agricultural reports in order to understand where fundamentals of supply and demand are going. Although food is consumed locally it may have been produced anywhere in the world. Certainly prices across the globe reflect the ability to transport agricultural products virtually anywhere, if the price is right. The final price of a commodity depends upon supply and demand. If a drought threatens wheat production in the Ukraine or unusually heavy rains threaten to destroy much of Brazil’s soybean harvest, prices are bound to go up. In trading agricultural commodities, keeping an eye on the weather forecasts is part of the job. Likewise, if American consumption of beef products suddenly falls there may be more supply of live cattle and feeder cattle than demand and the price will fall. Those trading agricultural commodities such as wheat often consult United States Department of Agriculture agency reports such as the wheat outlook. This report looks at supply, use, prices, and trade for wheat, including supply and demand prospects in major importing and exporting countries. The report shows United States wheat information by class. The November 15, 2012 report starts as follows:

“projected u.s. wheat ending stocks for 2012/13 are lowered 44 million bushels as higher feed and residual disappearance more than offsets a reduction in projecte
