About CommodityTrends


We love the Commodity Markets, we love Trading, and we love Markets that Trend.

CommodityTrends provides the ideal data interface and tools for commodity traders, and we are the proud home of the CommodityTrends Trading Plan 2.0.
For CommodityTrends staff, this feels like a family operation. We’ve worked together as a team for more than 16 years (a pretty remarkable achievement in any job setting), helping people at all levels of trading learn to make the most of the opportunities in today’s commodity markets.
Our home base is located just off the I-5 in southern Oregon’s Grants Pass. Our friendly town is part of the beautiful Rogue Valley, known for the wild Rogue River, splendid wineries, Dutch Bros coffee, the Britt music festival, and the world famous Ashland Shakespeare Festival.
Our team members love where we live and what we do. So every year we close the office and celebrate our company anniversary by visiting local wineries. And we close the office for a couple of days each summer to recognize everyone’s hard work while we play on the river and enjoy all the bounty the area affords.
As you can guess, our office has a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. But don’t be deceived; we are fiercely dedicated to what we do. We love working with our Course Members and making our programs ever better at helping people achieve their goals.
We provide top-notch customer service and assistance so that even the newest traders feel comfortable facing the challenges of the market. Our Course Counselors each have at least twenty-five years experience helping new commodity traders find their feet, and they offer toll-free assistance.
The leader of our group is Jim Prince, a 30+ year trading veteran. Jim oversees our programs, develops our Courses, writes our weekly newsletters, sends out regular market alerts, hosts our webinars, prepares the daily CommodityTrends videos, and more! He is also in charge of the company trading accounts. Jim has the distinction of being a notably unemotional trader. He is also an excellent teacher. The combination makes him perfectly suited to prepare our Course Members to enter the markets with the tools and knowledge to succeed as a trader.
With everything Jim and the whole team do to keep expanding our services and provide excellent Course Member support, we always think of CommodityTrends as truly the greatest business on earth!
