Corn , Wheat and Soybean correct reading of PnL ......

Just need someone to confirm my interpretation of calculating out the actual PnL ( Price changes ) in the forementioned Grains

I have attached a screenshot , showing the Price changes on the various " Months "

Which of the following , are the correct ways in calculating these " Moves " in price.....

0 4/8 = .005 OR .05

1 2/8 = .0125 OR .125

0 6/8 = .0075 OR .075

1 = .001 OR .01

18 4/8 = .01850 OR .1850

193 2/8 = 1.9325 OR 19.325

Just wanting to make sure that I know what I'm looking at and how to interpret the moves and fluctuations in the Grains

Thanks much - Michael

Without specifying units for the right side of your equations it is not possible to answer your question directly.

0 4/8 corresponds to a change of the value of the future of 25 $, 1 corresponds to 50 $, and 18 4/8 to 925 $.

I hope this helps.

Best regards, Myrrdin
