About Matthew Pot & Grain Perspectives

The brainchild of Ontario native Matthew Pot, Grain Perspectives is a company dedicated to helping you research, plan, and grow your grain business.  Grain Perspectives balances today’s risks with tomorrow’s opportunities, and provides input and data to help you move forward.

As you focus on your planting it can be difficult to navigate the markets—and his daily perspectives help you with that. His clients and customers across Ontario enjoy the passion Matthew has for markets. After all, markets are more fun when we understand them and can add a slice of humor here and there.

Matthew grew up on a family farm in Niagara Region where for years he was destined to take over the dairy operation. That is until he came across an economic way of thinking. Matthew’s passion quickly changed to understand the behavior of markets deeper and that is something that is still happening today. We are all students of the ever changing markets.

After completing his Master’s, Matthew worked at Ontario Pork researching and trading to hedge their forward contracting program. He then spent years working one-on-one with some of Ontario’s largest grain producers on marketing plans for their grain—with great success. During this time he expanded his economic knowledge, taking certifications on technical analysis and derivative strategies. In December 2015, he created Grain Perspectives and has written market reports to his clients since then.
