Who are the traders?

Ron O'Brien has provided an opportunity to follow the trading on the CME:

Free Daily CME Spot Dairy Market Conference Call
Would you like to listen to the CME Spot Dairy Market's live without opening your checkbook?
Conference call will be live from 10:40am CST until Cash Butter wraps up. CME spot markets (Blocks - Barrels - Powder - Butter) trade between 10:45am and 11:15am CST.To listen live, Dial 1-213-289-0500. When prompted, enter the participant access code of 33139 #. During the conference call your voice will automatically be muted. Standard long distance rates apply.

Free Daily "Dairy Market Updates" via prerecorded voice messages
Would you like to know what happened in the cash Dairy markets but don't have the time to listen to the conference call? prerecords and delivers two separate voice messages (all under 2 minutes) directly to your phone.The first update wraps up the CME spot dairy auction as well as informs the listener as to what the commodity futures markets are doing as of 11:15 cst.The second prerecorded phone call briefly summarizes all daily trading in the Dairy, Grain, Cattle, Energy and any other related commodity futures markets. That update should reach you within minutes following the 1:15pm cst Grain market close. I must have your permission in writing, via email to along with your name and phone number to receive this service.

Free Weekly Newsletter
Titled "DairyPost". Newsletter can be found @ 7am est. every Monday on or a copy can be sent via email or fax. To receive a copy via email, please sign up for the newsletter at the top of the homepage.

This service will only provide "floor trader's" symbols. The traders trade for the same parties.

My suggestion is to keep a list which, even though the exact information on the trader is not there you will be able to see the number of traders.

This is a thin, thin market.


  1. Is there a way to find out who it was that offered the 20 loads on Friday that lowered both barrels and blocks? Looks like "Here they come!"

  2. I have been listening the past several weeks. Who is hawkeye?

  3. What was the specific trade of "hawkeye"?
