Managing wheat price risk


Let seasoned StoneX professionals design and deliver a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions to address your business needs and achieve your goals.

Less volatility. More opportunity.

At every stage of the wheat production chain, market participants face a risk of adverse price movements caused by market vagaries and fluctuations in supply and demand. Wheat futures and options provide a means to manage this risk and take advantage of potential profit opportunities.

Wheat hedging

We design and execute hedging programs built on proven commodity risk management principles for wheat producers, consumers and merchandisers, and are not speculatively oriented. Futures and options activities are used to assist grain marketing by providing opportunities to retain margins and manage risk.

StoneHedge® Merchandising System

Streamline origination. Automate offers. Simplify hedging. Our web-based merchandising system allows commercial grain customers to automate hedging and incorporate cash bids, stream quotes, offer/order initiation and manage hedges through one easy-to-use platform.

OTC products

Over-the-counter (OTC) products deliver benefits like exchange-traded futures and options. Still, they can offer customizable terms (e.g., non-standard quantities, strike prices, expiration dates, etc.) that align more closely with your unique hedging needs.

Commodity risk management

Our award-winning consultants understand both the futures and the physical markets. To limit risk and uncertainty and improve margins and bottom-line results, we will construct a risk-management program tailored to your company's needs, then work closely with you to execute it.
