Grain Futures and Options

Grain Futures and Options are Derivatives Contracts that provide local market participants with a tool for hedging against agricultural price risk. The JSE currently offers Futures and Options on white maize, yellow maize, wheat, soya beans and sorghum. Contracts are priced and traded in rands per ton and can be physically settled should the futures position be held on until last trading day.

Who is this for?

Typically, this product is used by those with a vested interest in protecting themselves against adverse price movements in the physical agricultural commodities market. Hedgers may be commercial producers, consumers and millers. Producers can employ a short hedge to lock in a selling price and end-users can use a long hedge to secure a purchase price. Speculators hoping to make a profit on short-term movements in the Futures Contract price also make use of this product.
