Program Info

Mr. Zelinski trades futures on a wide range of markets, including agriculture, finance, energy, and others. Mr. Zelinski's primary focus is in agricultural commodities, and specifically grains and oilseeds. Mr. Zelinski has gained a thorough knowledge of these markets while working with Nesvick Trading Group as the primary research analyst for grain and oilseed markets. Mr. Zelinski has traveled around the country to study crop development, as well as to gain a knowledge of US cash grain and oilseed markets. Mr. Zelinski's fundamental analysis also
includes 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.
Mr. Zelinski also closely monitors developments in world currency values and political events that can have an influence on global trade flows. In addition to this analysis's influence
on his agricultural trading strategies, Mr. Zelinski will also use this analysis in trading various currency, financial, metal, and energy contracts. Technical/chart analysis is used very rarely, and generally only to help determine entrance and exit points. Options are frequently used to enhance potential revenue and/or to manage risk. Mr. Zelinski is comfortable in trading from both the long and short side of all futures markets.
