A LOOK TO THE FUTURE
MGEX is committed to implementing changes to meet customer needs.
As the futures industry continues to evolve, so does MGEX.
In December 2004, MGEX launched five electronically traded agricultural
index contracts. These contracts are based on Data Transmission
Network (DTN) calculated country-origin based indexes. The indexes
represent country elevator prices to a much closer degree than the
traditional deliverable contracts.
In addition to the indexes, hard red spring wheat trades
electronically during trading and night-time hours. Look for information
about these contracts in the products section of this site.
