  • Playing Soft Commodities

    By Federico Zaldua - April 4, 2013 | Tickers: DBA, CORN, SOYB

    Grain prices fell strongly for a second straight day on Monday as the market learned about higher than estimated US corn stocks. It had been years since I had last seen such marked bearish behavior for soft commodities. Should investors prepare for lower grain prices? Apparently, good harvest seasons in the US, Brazil and Argentina pose a huge price risk going forward. Let's review the price behavior of two more »

  • Agricultural Pullback Signals Opportunity

    By Nihar Patel - January 15, 2013 | Tickers: MON, DBA, CORN

    The drought is behind us, or is it? The thing about droughts is that they can actually last a very long time with interspersed wet periods. There is really no guarantee that the drought is over or that it will continue. We will have to wait to see if enough snow and water falls from the sky to alleviate the problems 2012 has caused. So all that can really be more »

  • QE3 Throws Money at Commodities, But Prices Keep Falling

    By Chris Marasco - October 14, 2012 | Tickers: DJP, SLV, GLD, CORN, USO

    What really moves commodity prices?  That is the question being asked by investors today, who are weighing the impact of national and international supply and demand, natural disasters, and the Fed’s quantitative easing. 

    And Europe’s woes further compound the issue.  Bond investors have avoided debt from risky countries like Spain, and also do not wish to park their money in the safer, low-returning German Bund, the 10-year note more »

    By Jeff Stouffer - August 27, 2012 | Tickers: BAL, DBA, CORN

    Commodities are a broad label as there are numerous ways to participate in this asset class. Physical more »

  • US Drought Reignites Ethanol Debate

    By Tony Daltorio - August 15, 2012 | Tickers: ADM, SAFM, SFD, CORN, VLO | Editor's Choice

    Once again economics and politics are colliding as the ongoing drought, the worst in 50 years in the United States, has reignited the debate about ethanol. The debate centers on whether it makes sense, at a time of food shortages globally, to turn corn into fuel. The U.S. ethanol industry uses roughly 5 billion bushels of corn annually, or about 40 percent of the U.S. crop.

  • 5 Stocks to Profit from Soaring Grain Prices

    By TS Davis - July 24, 2012 | Tickers: ADM, MOO, MON, DBA, CORN

    The 2012 drought has been hard on farmers in the United States. I know personally as the drought here in Kentucky laid waste to the second cutting of hay on my father's hay fields, which is vital to feeding the herds through the coming winter months and providing enough hay for the feeder calves that will be topped out in the feed lot. Another problem facing farmers and ranchers more »

    A perfect storm has gathered to sink alternative energy and biofuel companies.  Crude oil has fallen along with economic growth around the world, resulting in the exchange traded fund for the industry, United States Oil (NYSEMKT: USO), being down 15.17% for 2012.  Over the same period, United States Natural Gas (NYSEMKT: UNG), the exchange traded fund for natural gas, is off by 24.96%.  The exchange traded fund for more »

    By Tony Daltorio - May 4, 2012 | Tickers: MON, DBA, SYT, CORN, SOYB

    Most investors are well aware of rising oil prices and often try to figure ways to profit from this trend. Now another, perhaps bigger, risky trend is underway around the world – a repeat of the 2007-08 spike in food prices.
