About Grain Futures

About the Course

Grains and oilseed markets are a fantastic range of markets to trade. They offer quite a diversity of applicable strategies including day trading, long term trading, event trading, calendar spreads, inter-market spreads and of course options trading.

The big three on the CME are corn, soy and wheat, but there are other markets worth knowing about including soy oil, soy meal and several different wheat types.

This course is part of the series of courses we call ‘About Futures’. In this one we look at the grains and oilseed futures traded on the CME. Overall, the series of courses can be used as a reference guide.
