Grain Marketing
Grain Marketing Calculator gives our clients the opportunity to calculate their input cost and to help them manage the marketing of their crops. The system allows them to test different marketing strategies and the effects of these strategies on their projected income.

The aim of this competition is to make grain producers and aspiring traders comfortable with using JSE derivative products. This competition is aimed at the beginner trader and as such we want you to experiment to your hearts content. In reality trading there are restrictions on your cash flow, for the purpose of this competition this will not be applicable.

Each year the scenario changes: but in short:

You will have to hedge a producer from the Bothaville district’s 6000 tonne white maize (WMAZ) harvest for delivery in July 2015 (JUL15’). This Bothaville farmers expenses will be FIXED at nine million rand (Direct Expenses will be R7 million and Indirect Expenses will be R2 million) and a Differential of R209 will apply. This places all the participants on a level playing field.

Even in the fantasy world we cannot condone rogue trading and wild speculation is strongly discouraged. Do not let greed get in the way of protecting your income. That is why you are prohibited to market more maize than you can produce therefore we have FIXED limits in place to prevent you from marketing more than you have. We want you to use this competition and the wonderful platform that has been created to practise your hedging skills and you will soon find your fear of the JSE Derivatives disappear.
