Compare Enhance Contracts

Premium Offer

Get a premium price for your grain. Sell new or old grain now for an enhanced cash price. In exchange, make a Firm Offer to sell the same number of bushels for deferred delivery at an established price.

  • Sell grain today for an enhanced cash price.
  • Agree to a Firm Offer for like quantity if the futures price is at or above a target price on an established pricing date.
  • Deliver your additional bushels if the market is at or above your Firm Offer.
  • You keep your premium, even if the Firm Offer isn’t triggered.
Use when the market is:
  • Bull

Focal Point

Sell now. Participate in potential upside market movement. Use this contract when you need to sell grain — or have already sold — but you aren’t happy with today’s price. Deliver grain now, express your bias, and stay in the market during the pricing period.

  • Establish an initial price on a selected futures reference month.
  • Automatically re-enter the market if conditions change — with the potential to enhance the contract price.
  • Set your final Focal Point price any time before the final pricing deadline.
Use when the market is:
  • Bull

MarketTracker Working Order

Capture upside potential and protect against downside risk. Use this contract when you are able to store your grain for a period of time and have a specific price target you believe could be reached during that timeframe.

  • Set it and forget it to benefit from potential futures price increases while getting protection from a trailing stop out order.
  • The stop out price increases as the reference futures month price increases, allowing your downside protection to track the market higher.
  • Establish a target limit order off the selected reference futures month.
  • If the reference futures month market level increases above the target limit order, the order will be executed, establishing your futures price while cancelling the stop out order.
Use when the market is:
  • Bull
