Editorial Review - Book Description:
Despite being excited by and interested in the grain markets, many participants crave a better understanding of them. Now there is a book to deliver that understanding in ways that could help you make money trading grain. Elaine Kub uses her talents for rigorous analysis and clear, approachable communication to offer this 360-degree look at all aspects of grain trading. From the seasonal patterns of modern grain production, to grain futures' utility as an investment asset, to the basis trading practices of the grain industry's most successful companies, Mastering The Grain Markets unveils something for everyone. The key to profitable grain trading, Kub argues, is building knowledge about the fundamental practices of the industry. To demonstrate the paramount importance of such intelligence, she uses anecdotes, clear examples, and her own experiences as a futures broker, market analyst, grain merchandiser, and farmer. The result is an immensely readable book that belongs in the hands of every investor, grain trader, farmer, merchant, and consumer who is interested in how profits are really made.

Mastering the Grain Markets, August 14, 2012 ByW Craddock (Allerton, IL, United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastering the Grain Markets: How Profits Are Really Made (Kindle Edition) Elaine Kub presents the perspectives of the producers, grain buyers, end users and market speculators in explaining how the grain markets work and what makes them move. Elaine uses first person stories and real world examples rather than technical jargon and unintelligible charts to illustrate her points; thus this book is perfect for anyone wishing to gain some insight into grain production and marketing.

Great for the non-farming farm owner, December 31, 2012 ByGribbly Snard (Grand Rapids, MI USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering the Grain Markets: How Profits Are Really Made (Paperback) I'm a member of the first generation of our family to not grow up on a farm and I recently took over managing some family farmland. This book was exactly what I needed, from a non-farmer farm-owner perspective. It does not assume any prior knowledge but it does not treat me as an idiot either. It has been great in filling in the gaps in knowledge when it comes to selling grains. There are valuable lessons that I have learned, not only in the workings behind marketing grain, but also understanding the perspectives of the people with which I will be conducting transactions. The book was straight forward with short stories to illustrate the examples and provide relative lessons. Understanding how grain futures can reduce my risk as a grain owner, instead of increase it, was perhaps the most interesting lesson. This is just what I needed.
