    • The Variable Storage Rate (VSR) mechanism in The Board of Trade of the City of Chicago, Inc. (“CBOT”) SRW Wheat futures contract (CME Globex Code: ZW; Clearing and CME ClearPort Code: W; Rulebook Chapter: 14) examines nearby calendar spreads to determine adjustments in maximum contract premium (storage) charges.  The December 2016 – March 2017 wheat calendar spread averaged 55.59 percent of financial full carry during the period of September 19, 2016 through November 25, 2016.  Since this result is between 50% and 80% of financial full carry, the maximum premium charge that a wheat regular delivery facility may charge holders of its outstanding shipping certificates will not change from the current maximum charge of 36.5/100s of one cent per bushel per day (approximately 11 cents per bushel per month).
