The trading program’s focus is in agricultural commodities, specifically grains, oilseeds, and livestock. The primary focus of the trading program is in grains and oilseeds. Mr. Zelinski’s fundamental analysis on the grain and oilseed markets includes forecasting US and world supply and demand tables, monitoring of US and world weather, studying domestic and international freight values, and tracking underlying cash values associated with agricultural futures markets. Mr. Zelinski also travels the country several times a year to study crop development to help in projections of crop production. With several years of experience as an analyst, Mr. Zelinski has also developed strong relationships throughout the US and world with cash grain traders that serve as a gateway to additional information.
Mr. Zelinski has also developed several strong connections in the cash side of the livestock industry that aids the livestock trading portion of the program. He has developed extensive contacts in the cash livestock industry including contacts at major packers, feedlots, and other significant players. These extensive contacts give the program a distinctive edge in evaluating opportunities in trading livestock futures.
Opus Futures closely monitors development in world currency values and political events that can have an influence on global trade flows. Technical analysis is used very rarely, and generally only to help determine entrance and exit points. Options are frequently used to enhance potential revenue and manage risk. Opus Futures is comfortable trading from both the long and short side of futures and options markets.
