Morning & Mid-Day Comments

Morning comments cover U.S weather & news, technical analysis, Jerry Gulke’s market commentary, world news and Gulke Group trading recommendations. Marketing recommendations include: Corn, Soybean Complex, Wheat, Livestock, Hogs, Rice, and Cotton. Other ag-related commodities include: Natural Gas, Crude Oil, Heating Oil, Gasoline, World Currencies, DJIA, and the Interest Rate Markets. We also include the Gulke Group Position Summary and Speculator’s Table.

Weekly Comments

Scheduled during the weekend (usually by Sunday night), a wrap-up of the previous week’s technical action are also delivered via fax and posted on the web. Weekend comments will include commodity price charts, supply and demand tables, more detailed comments on recent USDA reports and weekend weather developments when appropriate.

Daily Comments

Jerry advises clients throughout the United States on a daily basis (morning comments) via fax or web updates.

Morning comments regularly consist of individual commentaries on daily:

  • Weather
  • Corn
  • Soybean complex
  • Wheat
  • Livestock
  • Cotton (when necessary)
  • Rice (when necessary)

Jerry will readily explain his views and what he is doing in the interest rate markets (bonds) as well as energy components (crude, heating oil, gasoline). He will also comment on newsworthy items and their impact on agriculture. Normally, the Gulke Group daily comments consist of one or two pages.

Mobile Phone Updates

In conjunction with the morning and mid-day comments, we send a phone update to clients. This ensures that clients receive new advice in a timely fashion. As a new addition, Jerry periodically records voice updates personally as the market warrants.

Gulke Group Education/Webinars

Gulke Group is proud to offer ongoing education workshops to help farmers gain a better understanding of Fundamental Analysis, Technical Analysis, Cost Analysis and Crop Insurance.

Client Conferences

An additional client benefit is the opportunity to attend periodic commodity outlook conferences. These conferences are usually held in the winter, spring, and summer seasons at places that offset the season: i.e. someplace warm in the winter (Florida, Mexico, California) and somewhere cool the summer (a lake or mountain setting). Announcements regarding conferences are made via e-mail or on the web. Client conferences are usually not open to the general public.

Access to Gulke Group Analysts

Clients with questions about marketing recommendations or their own personal farming operation have access to Gulke Group analysts. We welcome calls with questions from our clients.
