New Research: Oil Price Pass Through to Agricultural Commodities

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- There is evidence that recent increases in oil supply have been reflected in corn prices. While likely confounded by market disruptions caused by COVID-19, our work suggests that the current developments in oil markets will have important ramifications for horizon-based behavior in corn markets in the months and years to come.

In the new article "Oil Price Pass Through to Agricultural Commodities" published in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics, co authors Clark Lundberg, from San Diego State University, Tristan Skolrud from the University of Saskatchewan, Bahram Adrangi from the University of Portland, and Arjun Chatrath from the University of Portland look into whether the relationships between oil prices and agricultural commodity prices vary over different time horizons.

Lundberg says, "Previous scholarship has disagreed over the nature of the relationship between oil and agricultural commodity prices. We develop a new econometric approach that provides insight into the horizon-based nature of the relationship. This approach allows us to identify a much more complex relationship than previous research was able to describe and helps to reconcile the lack of consensus in the literature."
