Agricultural commodities continue an underreported slide, with J.C. Parets noting corn is down for the 10th consecutive session. Earlier this week, the USDA estimated farm income in 2013 will be the highest in 40 years thanks to high prices. A weak harvest has little impact thanks to the use of crop-insurance programs. DBA -5.2%, CORN -4.4% YTD.

    How can farm income be enormous and yet DBA has fallen over the last five years. Something is wrong with this picture.

    DBA purchases and holds futures contracts... always be careful 'investing' in anything that holds futures contracts... there's a lot of slippage in the roll...
