Six Factor Strategies Delayed

DTN Six Factors Update Delayed Until Monday

(DTN logo)

COLUMBIA, Mo. (DTN) -- The usual Friday afternoon update of the DTN Six Factors Strategies will be Monday, July 8, due to market report delays caused by the Independence Day markets holiday. DTN's proprietary look at the current and future commodity markets uses six market signals (trend, volatility, noncommercial outlook, commercial outlook, seasonal index and price probability) to cut through the minute-by-minute noise in commodity markets. That analysis allows us to distill an accurate market direction that farmers and others in agriculture need to plan their commodity sales and purchases. A critical part of the noncommercial ("specs" or speculators) outlook is the weekly official Commitment of Traders report from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. That report, usually out on Friday afternoons, is delayed this week due to the market closures for the Independence Day holiday.

DTN uses the Six Factors analysis to provide marketing strategies for eight commodity futures markets: corn, feed corn, canola, cattle, soybeans, soybean meal, hard red winter wheat and soft red winter wheat. That proprietary analysis is available to DTN subscribers in the Markets section of our various platforms. The strategies are updated daily and receive a full review and update weekly.
