Commodity Market Exchange Competition
Written By: Madison Hire
This year the Agriculture Economics department had four students participate in the commodity market exchange competition. Each member of the team contributed ideas for what they thought would be the best decisions for their team. The competition was only one month so the team decided not to focus on long term aspects of the market but more on the day trading concepts. The preparation for students came a lot from commodity marketing classes AGEC 321 and 421. Matthew Lucas, a senior studying Commodity Marketing, said, "We figured out pretty quick that each member of our team offered a unique prior experience and skill set that we then had the opportunity to learn from." This was a fun and competitive learning opportunity for these individuals that they will be able to carry into their future careers.
