The Daily Service

The Cliff Harris/Randy Mann/Tom Loffman Weather and Trades daily weather and commodity trading service provides short, medium and long-term weather forecasts (up to 180 days and beyond). We also have "Cliff's Best Picks" of potentially profitable weather commodity trades that will be updated as needed. We highlight the major commodity markets that have been and will be affected by Ma Nature's "wild ways" in the next few years without a high risk of futures trading losses.

Our service has also added 32-year trader Tom Loffman's mathematical/technical stock and commodity forecasting. It's an approach similar to numerical weather forecasting and provides precise buy and sell prices based on the behavior of each stock or commodity, rather than using guesswork or untested speculation.

Our service also includes specialized articles on our pattern of Wide Weather "EXTREMES", El Nino, La Nina, global warming and cooling, volcanic activity, sunspot cycles, potential coffee and orange juice freezes, plus worldwide corn, wheat, cotton and soybean drought forecasts.

Each business day, Monday through Friday, you will also receive our short, medium and long-term weather forecasts (up to 180 days and beyond) and specialized articles on our pattern of Wide Weather "EXTREMES", long-term climatological cycles to 2038, El Nino, La Nina, global warming and cooling, volcanic activity, sunspot cycles, potential coffee and orange juice freezes, plus corn, wheat, cotton and soybean drought forecasts.

One of our primary function is to help traders, farmers, and business interests plan ahead. We won't just tell our subscribers when we think a particular weather event will occur in a specific location, but we want to instruct our subscribers as to why a specific "type" of climatological condition should develop and why these particular changes will affect farmers, the commodity markets, and various business interests.

Testimonials

I’ve used Cliff’s service for timing on planting for over 17 years. I get a schedule for corn pollination, especially on dryland crops, and his advice has been ‘right on’ about 90% of the time. He keeps us posted on overseas crop conditions and weather. He saved my cousin and I from bankruptcy when corn was at the bottom. - Ed Petrowski, Kansas.

This service is great! He’s the only light in these dark clouds. I highly recommend this service as many ask me about his advice every day. I’ve made lots of money with Cliff. - Kevin Hansen, Illinois.

This service has a lot of value with weather forecasts and marketing recommendations for the U.S. and around the world. I’ve known Cliff for over 30 years and have used this service since it began on DTN. - Ray Gaesser, Vice President of the American Soybean Association, Iowa

CLIFF HARRIS/RANDY MANN WEATHER AND TRADES (MONDAY OCTOBER 29, 2012)

NEW 180-DAY LONG RANGE WEATHER OUTLOOK:

Most of the rain and snow shower activity will be in the northwestern U.S. There will be some snow showers near the Great Lakes and frosty conditions near the Canadian border into next week. Toward the end next week, however, moisture is expected to increase across the Great Plains and Corn Belt states. Behind that particular storm system, high pressure is expected to rebuild across the southern Great Plains bringing warmer and drier weather to the nation's midsection toward Halloween.

All eyes are on Hurricane Sandy. Federal forecasters are calling this system "Frankenstorm" as it looks more ominous by the hour. It's currently a Category 1 storm and is expected to move northward near the East Coast this weekend. Sandy may be a strong tropical storm by the time it reaches the Virginia and Atlantic Coasts. By Halloween Eve, this storm may move across New England and New York.

Officials are concerned with possible heavy property damage from Sandy across the Northeast. Estimates are now close to $1 billion. It appears that colder air from Canada will mix in, creating heavy snows across southern Quebec and New England. Stay tuned.

OCTOBER 29 (FULL MOON) - DECEMBER 13 (NEW MOON): There should be two jet stream upper-level wind flow patterns across the country during this six-week cycle. A weak El Nino should strengthen a sub-tropical moist jet stream from California eastward into the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic states. A weaker Maritime Polar Jet Stream will likely hug the U.S./Canadian border to the north.

DECEMBER 13 (NEW MOON) - JANUARY 26 (FULL MOON): This six-week winter of 2012-13 cycle should be milder than usual north of I-80 and drier than normal with less snowfall across the Inland Northwest. Thanks to El Nino, it will be wetter than normal from California eastward to the Atlantic Coastline.

JANUARY 26 (FULL MOON) - MARCH 11 (NEW MOON): This winter cycle may be wetter than usual from California and the Desert Southwest eastward to the Carolinas, if El Nino holds on in the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Northwest will stay dry and mild. Normal weather will prevail elsewhere across the country.

SOUTH AMERICA'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

While the exception of a few showers at times across northeastern Brazil, Peru and southwestern Bolivia, all other crop zones will be drier than usual this mid spring period under two strong ridges of high pressure. Temperatures will likewise be warmer than normal, except for Uruguay and southeastern Brazil where it will remain cool and mild.

AUSTRALIA'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

Abnormally dry weather across much of the continent along with warmer than normal temperatures will be unfavorable in most crop zones of Australia for filling wheat. The arid conditions, however, will favor early maturing wheat soon to be harvested.

SOUTH AFRICA'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

Improving rainfall favors both the late planting and early developing of maize (corn) across most crop regions of South Africa.

INDIA'S AND PAKISTAN'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

Except for lingering showers across southern India, most of the rest of India and all of Pakistan are now in the annual dry seasons and quite warm.

CHINA'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

Most of this huge country will be dry and relatively cool for mid fall during the next 10 days. Most of the shower activity will be in the extreme northeastern crop zones or far southern China.

EUROPE'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

Recent rains have improved conditions for the planting of winter wheat across formerly dry, wildfire-ravaged southwestern Europe. Most crop zones will be wet and cool during the next 10 days.

We should mention that summer drought conditions, fires, frosts and hail have combined not only to hurt grain grains, but the 2012 harvest of grapes is being termed, "the worst in a half century."

The two biggest wine producing nations, France and Italy, haven't seen a harvest this poor since the early 1960s. France's Chardonnay grapes were seriously hurt by hard freezes this past spring and an exceptionally frigid winter of 2011-12. A much drier than normal summer didn't help matters.

RUSSIA'S AND THE F.S.U.'S 6-10 DAY WEATHER OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

It's still quite dry in many crop zones throughout the Ukraine, Russia and the Former Soviet Union. Wheat exports, for example, will be down between 30% and 50% in Russia, the Ukraine and the western F.S.U.

THE CANADIAN PRAIRIE PROVINCES 6-10 DAY OUTLOOKS THROUGH NOVEMBER 8TH

There will be rain and snow showers ending by October 26. The period between October 27 and November 4, will be very cold, dry and windy with frigid northerly winds.

CLIFF'S "LUCKY 7" FUTURES, OPTIONS & SPREADS TRADES (MONDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2012):

FUTURES AND SPREADS:

1. Buy July 2013 Chicago corn between $7.21-$7.25 with a stop at $7.07-$7.11. Risk: $700. Buy nearby "puts" on each rally and "calls" on the major dips. Corn was mostly down on Friday.

2. POTENTIALLY PROFITABLE CORN SPREAD!!! Have your "cake and eat it, too." Buy July 2013 corn and sell December 2012 corn at a 11-15 cent premium to the December "short" side. This spread should go to at least 20 cents in favor of July 2013, as farmers "SELL OUT OF THE FIELDS" later this fall against December 2012. This spread allows for both "HEDGING" and "SPECULATING" in the same crop year and at favorable spread margins!!! Corn was mostly down on Friday.

3. Buy March 2013 Chicago wheat between $8.71-$8.75 with a stop at $8.57-$8.61. Risk: $700. Wheat was down on Friday.

4. Buy March 2013 Chicago oats between $3.75-$3.79 with a stop at $3.61-$3.65. Risk: $700. Oats were "mixed" on Friday.

5. Buy November 2013 soybeans at $13.21-$13.25. Put stops at $13.07-$13.11. November 2013 soybeans are still very oversold. Wait patiently to buy. Soybeans were "mixed" on Friday.

6. Buy November 2012 Chicago feeder cattle at 144.30-144.80. Put stops at 141.30-141.80. Risk: $1,500. Take profits near $1.50-a-pound. Feeders were down again on Friday.

7. Buy #11 March 2013 New York sugar at 19.15-19.20 cents-a-pound. Put stops at 18.65-18.70 cents-a-pound. Risk: $560. Sugar was down again on Friday.

NOTE: When a Current Position is "Flat," then the trading system is not in that particular position and waiting for the nearby Entry Price. Once the Entry Price is hit, the trading system will generate a Protective Stop. If one chooses to enter the market at the Entry Price, it would be advisable to add a protective stop based on the amount of money one wishes to risk. Nearby contracts will be automatically rolled over one day before First Notice Day.
