Market Messenger® is a supplemental notification service for Ag Market Professional clients. It is available to all AMP clients, regardless of their primary delivery platform (Web, e-mail, iPad or fax).
Market Messenger is a cell phone based messaging service delivering market news and strategy updates to AMP clients while you are away from your computer. In some cases, it is used to deliver midday strategy updates, but it is our intent to use it most frequently to update you on changes in recommended risk management strategy and for breaking news or “quick reaction” analyses of major USDA reports.
Text or Voice messages are delivered to a cell phone, office or home phone number you specify. If your phone has an answering machine or voice mail capability, Market Messenger 2 will attempt to deliver the voice message to the recording device if there is no live response, and if an answering message begins. Text messages to cell phones, PDA’s and other devices are delivered for any "***red asterisk" items from the morning Ag Marketing Professional advice. You specifiy the commodities for which you wish to receive these alerts, and whether you want text messages or audio. Clients may also specify a secondary telephone number to “roll over to” if the primary number has no answer. A “repeat” key (5) is available for audio use in noisy environments.
Market Messenger 2 meets a very real need for ag producers. You may leave the house or office before the morning AMP advice has been received. Or, you may be away from your computer all day, working on a farm 20 miles away and unaware of market movement. Market Messenger 2 takes a proactive approach to ‘reach out and touch someone’ when we feel there is something you really need to know. This can be a price trigger that has been reached, an unanticipated USDA number, breaking news like BSE or Asian soybean rust, or other market moving news.
In the current market environment, staying in touch with the strategies and market action can make a major difference in your net selling or buying price. Grains, livestock and cotton have all seen huge daily price ranges at times. If you missed a morning recommendation, a midday update, or a key news item, and one of those big moves is underway, it could easily affect your bottom line by $10,000 or more in a single day.
You KNOW you’re going to be pre-occupied with farm work. Will you know when the market finds the winter low? The spring high? Will you be blindsided by a terrorist event, a big Chinese purchase, or if peace breaks out all over in the Middle East? You need Market Messenger 2® as a companion to your daily Ag Market Professional strategy and your Special Research Reports.
