A trend following trader’s dream, this sector is a regular supermarket with everything from coffee, sugar, rice, corn, cotton, lumber and even live hogs. Yes, most super markets do not sell live cattle but this one does. All you need to know about the instruments is available in the price patterns and background information so for trend trading there is no need to try to predict the market demand for soybeans and what factors drive it. Just treat them as any other time series.
The units used for agricultural commodities are usually a mass unit like pounds or a volume unit like bushels, but with various exceptions such as feet for lumber.
