Partnership to Automate Hedging Workflows for Grain Buyers

CQG’s Hedge Management System (HMS) will integrate with Barchart’s commodity trading platform, cmdtyView

Barchart and CQG announce a strategic partnership to automate futures hedging for physical grain trading in Barchart’s cmdtyView platform.

By integrating CQG’s Hedge Management System (HMS) with Barchart’s commodity trading platform, cmdtyView, merchandisers and grain buyers can easily automate the hedging of their physical grain contracts, reducing risk and streamlining workflows.

cmdtyView is then connected across the grain supply chain to farmers for submitting offers via Barchart’s Marketplace apps, as well as to grain accounting and ERP providers for managing contracts, tickets and positions; and to futures brokerage firms for execution and clearing.

“Our clients trust Barchart for pricing data and analytics, pre-trade decision support and physical trade negotiation," says Barchart CEO Mark Haraburda.

"Through this partnership with CQG, we offer a complete solution for the entire trade lifecycle, through to post-trade risk management."

The new hedge management workflows combine with Barchart’s global exchange pricing, deep fundamental data, physical commodity prices, and proprietary forecasts, making cmdtyView a true end-to-end workflow solution for commodity trading.

Delivered as part of Barchart’s enterprise solutions for agribusiness, Barchart helps automate the entire grain origination, grower engagement, and risk management process for global agriculture:
