By integrating CQG’s Hedge Management System (HMS) with Barchart’s award-winning commodity trading platform, cmdtyView, market participants will enjoy greater hedging capabilities and connectivity.
CQG for connectivity and hedging capabilities
Merchandisers and grain buyers can easily automate the hedging of their physical grain contracts, reducing risk and streamlining workflows.
cmdtyView is then connected across the grain supply chain to farmers for submitting offers via Barchart’s Marketplace apps, as well as to grain accounting and ERP providers for managing contracts, tickets and positions; and to futures brokerage firms for execution and clearing.
Mark Haraburda, Chief Executive Officer at Barchart, said: “We are proud to partner with industry-leader CQG to enhance our enterprise solutions for physical grain buyers. Our clients trust Barchart for pricing data and analytics, pre-trade decision support and physical trade negotiation. Through this partnership with CQG, we offer a complete solution for the entire trade lifecycle, through to post-trade risk management.”
Mike Glista, CQG Senior Vice President, commented: “We are excited about this deeper partnership with Barchart. Its cmdtyView product, coupled with CQG’s infrastructure for hedge management, will offer a cutting-edge tool to farmers and merchandisers alike.”
