MEET THE TEAM

David Fiala – CEO

Chief Analyst // Risk Management Consultant // Licensed Commodity Broker

David Fiala – CEO

David M. Fiala serves as President and Chief Analyst & Advisor of FuturesOne. David is a former Agricultural Marketing Instructor for the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Before moving to Lincoln at the end of 1999, David spent the previous five years in Chicago working as a Futures Broker, Agricultural Analyst and Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA). He has been licensed with the National Futures Association (NFA) and registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) since 1995. Now residing in Lincoln, in addition to being a writer for DTN, David continues his work as a risk manager, broker, analyst and CTA.

David grew up in Nebraska gaining market experience and knowledge in both the grain and meat arenas. He received his B. S. in Agribusiness from the University of Nebraska. There he dedicated much work toward Agricultural Marketing, working two years as a teaching assistant with renowned agricultural marketing expert Dr. James Kendrick, who taught the Agricultural Marketing course since the sixties. David was honored with the Outstanding Agribusiness Senior and FCA College Athlete of the Year awards in college.

After graduation David went into the Agricultural Economics Graduate program at Nebraska where he served as President of the Nebraska Agricultural Economic Graduate Student Organization in 1994-95. David is also a graduate of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s exclusive Agricultural Broker Training Program. There, he gained first-hand floor experience, thus gaining a firm understanding of the mechanics of the futures and options marketplace. The program went on to advance his education in many different fundamental, technical trading and hedging methods through classroom instruction from industry professionals. These advanced strategies, using both futures and options, are an integral part of his daily brokerage and analytical activities.

David maintains a good network with industry professionals and constantly monitors weather items and fundamental market information. He analyzes the charts or technical picture of the market attempting to predict fund activity. The estimated fund and commercial activity is monitored everyday. David’s market interpretations have been sought by medias such as Futures Magazine, Reuters News, WCIU Channel 26 in Chicago and KWHY Channel 22 in Los Angeles, Farm and Ranch’s Heartland Express. David has also been the featured speaker at trading and hedging seminars, as well as Chicago Mercantile Exchange Educational Courses. David’s goal is to continue to learn and research the markets as we advance in the global economy.

David is unique because of his ability to act as a risk manager and not just as a trader. More specifically, his focus is on the farmer risk and farm revenue rather than taking unnecessary risks by trying to always out guess the market. Collectively, these items give David a very complete view of the market place that he can put to work for you. Does that sound like something you might be interested in?

David also relies on FuturesOne Risk Managers throughout the country both for their overall market opinions but also local basis opinions. As you may know, the majority of FuturesOne Risk Managers have experience in commercial or small elevator cash trade and constantly monitor the cash markets. David values their information and market opinions. He knows that the monitoring of a customer’s local / regional basis picture is a very important element in the net price a producer receives for their grain.

The focus of the FuturesOne team is to tailor programs for individual producers, setting a game plan that will add more structure and sophistication to the way they sell their grain and protect their farm revenue. David looks forward to putting our team to work for you.

John Van Meter

Risk Management Consultant // Licensed Commodity Broker

John Van Meter

Growing up in western Iowa, where his family farms and operates a custom cattle-feeding operation, John has first hand knowledge in the commodity markets. His family has been actively using the futures markets as a hedging and speculative tool since the early 1960’s. John’s father was also a commodity broker, influencing him to follow a career in the futures industry.

John received a Bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University in Agricultural Business with an emphasis in finance. Upon graduation, John participated in the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s exclusive Agricultural Broker Training Program. This provided him with experience working on the floor at the CME. The program also provided education in fundamental and technical analysis, hedging and the cash markets. These advanced techniques using both futures and options are a keystone of his daily client interaction.

John has been working with many hedgers delivering fundamental insight, but has also dedicated much focus to the technical side of the markets. He has developed trading systems and assisted customers in executing the trading signals of various software manufacturers. John has co-authored technical hot lines and several trading systems.

Moving to a major clearing firm in 1998, at the suggestion of his colleague, David Fiala, prompted an introduction of a large number of speculators onto his account rolls, while being a recommended broker to trading superstar Larry Williams. In fact, John has executed trades for and followed the trading plans of many of today’s most famous trading “gurus” and system developers. Through this, John gained great insight into what the individual speculator needs in order to succeed in the increasingly complex and time sensitive market place. John found that many of the techniques used to manage risk for producers have direct application with the speculative market.
