Wheat Indexes


The MGEX wheat index contracts have made it possible to trade financially settled futures and options on three major classes of wheat–all on a single exchange, on a single electronic trading platform.

Hard Red Spring Wheat Index (HRSI), Hard Red Winter Wheat Index (HRWI), Soft Red Winter Wheat Index (SRWI), National Corn Index (NCI) and National Soybean Index (NSI) futures and options are traded electronically on the Globex® trading platform . These contracts provide price discovery based on wheat originated at country elevators and are very closely related to local cash prices for each wheat class.
