Financially settled South American Soybean futures offer a more precise tool to manage exposure to the Brazilian soybean market. As the largest producer and exporter of soybeans, Brazil plays a key role in the global soybean market, driving the need for a regional benchmark for price discovery.
Settling in US dollars to the Platts index, the contract reflects Brazilian export prices at the port of Santos, offered for trade as an outright or spread against the US-based Soybean contract.
