- Question from Toni - I've been listening to TWIFO since the launch (along with Vol Views and Advisors Option). Thanks for so many hours of listening and learning. I think I have a problem with TWIFO though because you guys are slowly luring me to the "dark side" of Ag products. But I'm not really sure where to begin because I'm a complete novice when it comes to agriculture (mostly trade spy and single name equity options). Is there one product that you feel is the friendliest or the least intimidating for beginners? Also are there any good resources out there for budding Ag options traders?
- Question from JLM54 - See a lot of talk about spreads between similar commodities (WTI/Brent spread, KC wheat / Chicago wheat). What about spreads between different commodities that may move in accordance to similar fundamentals? Is anyone tracking these relationships (WTI/Gold, Gold/10yr)? Are there any relationships you watch regularly that are outside the established intra-commodity spreads?
