RG Investments (continued from page 27) sales of commodities like wheat, corn and soybeans. This is the busiest day of the week because investors want to make new trades based off the data in the report. The biggest change that Gamble has seen in the past 30 years has been how technology has affected the volatility of the markets, he said. In the early days, Gamble would call the trading floor and sell the commodities. The atmosphere of the trading floor in New York City or Chicago for stocks or commodities meant that it could take hours before an investor saw the purchase of a stock. In those few hours the price could have shifted one cent, Gamble said. Now, he uses a special-ized computer program to process sales, and it only takes 15 seconds to make a purchase. Prices now can change in value by one to two cents every 15 seconds, he said. A bushel of corn that would’ve increased from $4 to $4.01 in the early days over the course of hours could change from $4 to $4.04 within a minute in today’s volatile market. “You have to know what is on the landscape out there and how these markets are going to move,” Gamble said. Other than technology changes, Gamble’s day-to-day work has remained the same. He still speaks with his clients over the phone and gives them advice on how to maximize their in-vestments. Sandy Ahrens, the office manager at RG Investments, and Gamble currently are the only employees at RG Investments, which helped BUSINESS them form a close working relationship. “He’s a good boss,” Ahrens said. “He will bend over backwards to help you with what you need.” Gamble has been consid-erate when Ahrens needs to run an errand or handle a personal matter, she said. When he isn’t helping his clients and watching the stock and commodities markets, Gamble is an ac-tive member of the Mighty Fortress Lutheran Church. He gives back to the commu-nity in the church’s annual Hot Dog Feed on the Fourth of July . The funds raised by the fundraiser support the Blue Valley Food Pantry . “We are raising funds for what I believe to be a very worthy cause for helping people in the community and the food pantry,” he said. Gamble said he enjoys the quality of life that he has in Seward and can’t see himself moving to a bigger city, even though he could. “I’m here and people can walk into my door,” Gamble said. “I consider all my cli-ents as friends. That’s part of being in a small commu-nity and a small business man.” FREE E-Edition Access ^P[OWYPU[Z\IZJYPW[PVU  :d;[O:[YLL[ :L^ H YK 5,d;f;b;a;b;b;d;b;a;a;d;e;d; 0HPRULDO+RVSLWDO 6SHFLDOW\&OLQLF 2IIHULQJSK\VLFLDQVHUYLFHVLQPRUHWKDQ b;PHGLFDOVSHFLDOWLHV&ORVHWRKRPH 6HZDUG�f;1(     ZZZPKFVXV )URQWURZ�f;IURPOHIWd; /\QQHWWH=HLV]OHU�f;/LQGD +XGVRQ�f;/HRWD6FKXWWHe; �b;EDFNURZ�f;IURPOHIW�c;-DQH +DHIQHU�f;'DQLHO3RPDM]O�f; /LVD3RPDM]O1RWSLFWXUHGd; /HUR\'LQVODJH :H:DQW7R%H <285 3KDUPDF\ :DLWLQJWRRORQJIRU\RXUSUHVFULSWLRQV":HFDQ KDYH\RXUSUHVFULSWLRQVÀ OOHGLQPLQXWHV 3DF¶1·6DYH'LVFRXQW3KDUPDF\ 2SHQd;0 )c;DP a;SPe;6DWc;DP SP c;:+Z\6HZDUG   c;b; Cari, Vagas and Jeanie We would like to welcome our newest member of the team, Ann Koch. �f; J gl`K]]\;Y\\q �f;LjYad]jKYd]k �f;Hangl:ja\_]k 344 Main St., Ste. 100 • 402-643-6434 www.jones-ins.com 29 • **.,Hagf]]jk J \&$ E ad^gj\$F=.0,(- Seward County Independent and The Milford Times • November 2, 2016 ,(*%/.)%+*+.
