Introducing The New cmdty Livestream Series: 2020 Grain Market Update!

You may remember when cmdty’s Yield Forecast Indexes correctly forecasted the 2019 USDA soybean yield figures three months in advance. We thought this was quite the accomplishment and to keep the momentum going we made these Yield Forecast estimates available for free on a semi-monthly basis through a brand new report. Subscribers of the U.S. Yield Forecast Report will have access to the benchmark national yield estimates and forecasts for corn and soybeans from all major field crop producing states. Daily 2020 Yield Forecast Indexes for corn and soybeans, including county and crop reporting district forecasts, are also available within commodity trading platform cmdtyView Pro.

Since we’re dedicated to giving our users as much insight and information as possible when it comes to our Yield Forecast Indexes, we’ve decided to take this one step further with a new livestream series: Grain Market Update 2020!

In this livestream series, we will be hosting a webinar once a month during the growing season. During each webinar, we will be joined by a rotating cast of market experts that will preview that month's upcoming WASDE report and provide the latest cmdty Yield Forecasts ahead of the USDA's estimates. In addition, our guest experts will update viewers on "What's New in Ag?”. To wrap it up, attendees will have a chance to chat live with Barchart’s Head of Strategy Keith Petersen and our guest market expert with a Q&A session.

Can’t wait to dive in? You’re in luck because our first webinar is on Wednesday, May 13th and we’re happy to announce that Keith will be joined by Grain Market Expert Alan Brugler.

Keith and Alan will discuss the May 2020 WASDE report and kickoff cmdty's 2020 WASDE/Crop Production Livestream Series. They will also be providing viewers with an overview of Barchart's newly released whitepaper, Using Grain Yield Estimates to Predict Commodity Prices.

We want you to be as prepared as possible for each WASDE and Crop Production release, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to get in on the action! You can register for the May webinar, and for our entire market update series now.
