I work with investments related to commodities and I would like to have access to the following report:

"LMC International: Sugar and Sweeteners Market Report"

Could you help me to get access to that?

    what have you done to access this data? there seem to be annual versions of this, what year are you requesting? we need more information from you. – albert Feb 22 '19 at 3:39

According to Data.gov, the accessLevel of the 2018 LMC International: Sugar and Sweeteners Market Report is non-public.

This field refers to the degree to which this dataset could be made available to the public, regardless of whether it is currently available to the public. For example, if a member of the public can walk into your agency and obtain a dataset, that entry is public even if there are no files online. A restricted public dataset is one only available under certain conditions or to certain audiences (such as researchers who sign a waiver). A non-public dataset is one that could never be made available to the public for privacy, security, or other reasons as determined by your agency.

-quote from Project Open Data accessLevel field usage notes (emphasis added)

That sounds like a definitive "No" to me. The only room for negotiation I see, is if you're not part of "the public."

Have you tried emailing the contact person listed on the data.gov page for this dataset (linked above)? What did they say?

  • IANAL, but it sounds like anyone who did provide this data set to you, might be committing a serious crime. But that's a question for law.SE. – csk Feb 22 '19 at 21:44
