Cornhusker Economics (February 12, 2014)
Price risk in the soybean and corn markets was discussed in this newsletter last December (Cornhusker Economics, 12/04/2013 and 12/11/2013). Now we’ll follow up with a discussion about another way to measure risk in commodity markets. This measure essentially tries to answer the question “How much money can I lose over a given period of time?” as compared to the measures on price variability that we discussed last month.
