Subject: what is the purpose of agricultural futures market

which one?

1) to allow high frequency traders to make a quick buck by betting which way markets will move immediately following report releases

2) to facilitate price discovery for agricultural commodities and to help commercial hedgers manage their risk

I look to see changes coming on high frequency trading. International market has been vocal about this (curb it) while U.S. more detached, ja.

Algorithmic computing-high speed trading with orders taken and cancelled almost simultaneously. "Banging a beehive" literally or figuratively is not market

friendly, ja. Grain traders say banging beehives prevents farmers from filling orders and slows transactions across 7000 U.S. elevators.

This affects your farming operation, ja. gottlieb.
