Program Info

The THIRD STREET AG INVESTMENTS Fundamental Discretionary Ag Program trades the grain and soy markets exclusively. Our trading advantage lies in the understanding of worldwide grain production, transportation, processing, consumption and trade flows. Each of the two principals of our firm have traded the grain and soy markets for more than 35 years. Our trading experience includes working for a major commercial grain firm, a premier investment bank and on the exchange trading floor. These varied perspectives combined with our worldwide information network and proprietary data bases allow us to thoroughly analyze the markets before making trading decisions.
