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 Contingent 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 Contingent 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 Contingent Offer.
  • You keep your premium, even if the Contingent Offer isn’t triggered.
Use if your market bias is:
  • Bear

Focal Point

Sell now. Participate in potential upside market movement. Use this contract when you need to sell — or already sold — grain, but you aren’t happy with today’s price. Deliver grain now, express your bias, and experience penny for penny price participation 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 if your market bias is:
  • Bull

Spread Point

Capitalize on price spread movement. Express your bias on price spread movement between two futures months. Enroll in Long Spread Point if you’re bullish or Short Spread Point if you’re bearish about the spread.

  • Establish an initial Spread Point value based on the current spread between two futures months.
  • Determine the final Spread Point value at a later date.
  • The resulting increase or decrease from the initial value is incorporated into your final contract price.
Use if your market bias is:
  • Bull
  • Bear
