Price Alerts! Thresholds


Price Alerts are a tool that Agronometrics makes available to its customers and users to the free trial. The alerts indicate that the average daily price of a commodity has risen or fallen by more than a specific threshold calculated to create approximately 12 reports a year.

To take into account the changes in the volatility of the Commodities we work with, we periodically adjust the thresholds so that they better represent our present reality. The below limits are calculated using the daily prices of each commodity from 02 Jan 2017 through 20 Mar 2020.

These thresholds were updated in the system on the 23 March 2020.

The table grape industry is in uncharted territory right now

Overview of the potential impact of COVID-19 on future grape supply and price, by Ira Greenstein of Direct Source Marketing, complemented by charts from Agronometrics.



Original published in FreshPlaza.com on March 24, 2020

That sentiment has completely reversed with substantially increased retail demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

With the lower volumes but increasing demand, the cold stores are rapidly being depleted and spot market pricing is expected to continue to increase, …
