Tidbits, CBOT Options, Weather Forecast, Broilers & Ethanol 6/21/24


July CBOT options expire today. A week from today is the Actual Planted Acres, Wheat Production, and Quarterly Grain Inventory as of June 1st. These numbers make the last business day in June the most important report day of the year. 

Friday is not only option expiration in the grains but also for stock & index options, index & single stock futures. This could be the largest ever with over $5.1 trillion in option exposure expiring and over $870 billion of that in single stock options.


There are CBOT weekly options that expire every Friday. The advantage of the weekly options is one can buy price protection for a major risk event with very little time value. For more information, check with your commodity broker.
