September 2022 CBOT Wheat Puts Continuing Report
After the Close Friday June 24, 2022:
After tracking the September wheat puts daily from April 14th, 2022, on May 20th, we went a week to update as of the close of business on May 27th and no updates were issued for four weeks until today, June 24th, 2022.
A “tic” is the smallest amount a price can change. For grain and soybeans futures, a tic is a quarter cent. For options, a tic is one-eighth of a cent. Options prices, aka premiums, values, are written on quote machines as a whole number dash a single digit of 0 through 7, which are the eighths of a cent. Example: 22-2 = twenty-two and two eighths of a cent, which will be read as twenty-two and a quarter cent.
