Abstract: Adopting a framework known from event studies we document patterns in the high-frequency comovement of oil and grain price changes. Using daily front month futures prices we demonstrate a closer relationship between oil and grain price changes after 2006, which suggests a change in the dynamics between grain and energy markets.
