OPUS FUTURES trades futures contracts on a wide range of markets, including agriculture, finance, energy, and others. Opus Futures' primary focus is in agricultural commodities, specifically grains and oilseeds. Fundamental analysis is used in 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. Several trips are made across the US to study crop development as well. Other factors monitored include world currency values and political events that can have an influence on global trade flows.
