Short Dated New Crop Options  08/13/14 1:32:21 PM

Short Dated Corn and Soybeans Options are a rather new product offered by the CME (Chicago Board of Trade).  They offer an opportunity for the producer to hedge and offset risk for New crop Months (Dec corn, Nov beans) with lower option premiums.  Option premiums are lower because of the shortened time values.  There are March, May, July and September expirations.  I have been using these almost a year now, and love them. 

The links below will take you to the CME website for quotes.  Choose which expiration Month you would like to see.

Call me with any questions.  They follow the November Bean and December Corn Futures even though they have earlier expirations. 

There are also "Serial" Options that are options that expire between the nearby month, and next futures month.  For Example:  It is August 13th, and the "nearby" trade month in corn is SEPT.  You have the option to Buy October or November expiration options.  The reason these are offered is to save "time value" premium.
