Strategic Trading Advisors


Jody Lawrence is a 25-year veteran in the commodity business having worked behind a trading desk, worked on the cash marketing side and then combined both along with a daily market comment when he started his business.  The newsletter currently has over 5500 subscribers in 33 states and tries to combine brevity with current market information to allow the producer more insight and confidence in their marketing program.

After years of farmer meetings and interviews I combined advice from the most successful farmers to develop an effective and proven marketing philosophy that could apply to any size operation.  The three basic principles are:

  1. Defining a Breakeven

  2. Selling Profitable Rallies (You Will Never Go Broke Selling at a Profit)

  3. Placing Sales Targets (Let Market Volatility Make Your Sales and Help Your Discipline).
