Fact Card: Short-Dated New Crop Options on Grain and Oilseed Futures

Cost-Effective Tools for Trading New Crop Markets

Short-Dated New Crop (SDNC) options provide liquid, shorter term alternatives based on new crop Corn, Soybeans, Soybean Meal and Oil, Chicago Soft Red Winter (SRW) Wheat and KC Hard Red Winter (HRW) Wheat futures. The key difference between SDNC options and standard options is that SDNC options expire at various points throughout the growing season – earlier than the standard new crop options – but are tied to a longer-dated new crop futures contract.
