Since becoming a broker I have been working with famers to trade the grain and livestock markets. With Kapco I want to focus on risk management and getting price protection locked in for my clients. When I first start working with a client I like to get an idea for their operation. We go over their production, break even prices, storage capabilities, etc. to get a better idea for when we need to be making sales and what kinds of targets we need to shoot for. When it comes to marketing I think it is important for us to follow the seasonal moves of grain and livestock and take advantage of good prices when they are available.

At Kapco we tend to have a more technical lean on the market so every morning I like to get an idea for the market sentiment. I interact with my clients frequently so I tend to send out texts if we have any market news or if anything interesting pops up. I think it is important for my clients to follow fundamental news as it comes up, but understand that underlying technical conditions are what ultimately will give us long term moves. Our ?Weekly Digest? puts out great information that helps give you an idea for what fundamentally is going on in the market in terms of demand and use for grains.

I also have clients that have taken interest in outside markets. One market that I have been actively working with clients to trade with is crude oil. We are able to get good access to seasonal tendencies on outside markets and get a good idea for fundamental changes in these markets.

I love everything sports. One of my favorite places to be is the bleachers at Wrigley to watch a Cubs game.? Along with the Cubs, I am a huge fan of Michigan State football and basketball along with the Detroit Lions. Every March my college friends and I meet out in Las Vegas to watch March Madness together. I also enjoy going out golfing and playing Xbox with my friends.
