  • Active Advantage: Hedge-to-Arrive (HTA)

The Hedge-to-Arrive (HTA) Advantage

The Hedge-to-Arrive (HTA) grain contract offers you the choice to lock in only the futures reference price portion of your cash contract for a specific delivery time and quantity. The basis can be set at a later date, but must be done prior to delivery. It’s one of many contract options that allow you to actively manage price risk.

Note that entering into a Hedge-to-Arrive (HTA) contract does not result in the seller opening a futures or options account or having a futures or options position. Any futures or options position taken by buyer is for the benefit of the buyer only and shall be in the buyer’s name. Futures and/or options may be employed as a grain pricing mechanism. This contract is not a futures or options contract or a commodity pool agreement.
