yes, they have been trading in lean hogs for many years in the US and here. It is well-known amongst investors and seen as one of the best assets you can trade.
sorry for my ignorance: you mean buying and selling pigs?
actually, you don't actually trade on the pigs themselves, rather the contracts on the carcasses.
it's about the meat supply rather than the piggies themselves! Otherwise you would have to go to the farm and buy a pig lol.
it's about the American market. Not UK.
I think it might be a biy extreme for me.
not really, as it doesn't matter where you are in the World. Lean hogs are an excellent investment. It's completely hands off as it were. Have a go!
