Corn was the most recent crop of interest for commercials, but not the only one where commercials are finding attractive values in the grain market. After a brief absence this summer, commercials returned to the long side of Chicago wheat on Aug. 8, and as of Sept. 12, were holding 33,995 net longs. In the case of Chicago wheat, it is not unusual for commercials to be net long when prices are cheap, but it is a sign of support nonetheless.
"We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us." - Rabindranath Tagore, poet. Have you ever had one of those nagging feelings that something isn't right, but couldn't quite put your finger on it? When it comes to talking markets, I've had that sense for a long time. At times, it felt like I was speaking a different language than everyone else and I couldn't figure out why that was.
Turning to soybeans, some may look at the numbers and wonder why November soybeans closed down 9 1/2 cents. After all, USDA's estimate of old-crop U.S. ending soybean stocks was reduced from 370 mb to 345 mb, and new-crop ending stocks held pat at 475 mb. However, markets can be emotional and traders certainly showed a bearish emotional response to USDA's higher yield estimate of 49.9 bpa and higher crop estimate of 4.43 bb.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
