As the table above shows, continuous compounding helps with returns even when prices are falling. In the case of the price decline equalling -4% per day, it enables the investor to break even (ie. earn a return of 0%) while daily manual compounding will lead to a -44% loss. However, the next row shows that while auto-compounding generally increases returns relative to daily compounding, it WILL NOT PREVENT A NEAR COMPLETE LOSS OVER TIME IF PRICES WERE TO DECLINE AT A RATE OF -5%. So, please DYOR on the soundness of the underlying farms' projects before investing.
