Grain Merchandiser Educational Webinar Series

Join us for a series of 90-minute Grain Merchandiser Educational Webinars in July for an opportunity to gain a solid foundation on merchandising and price-risk management concepts. The series will focus on the fundamentals of Cash, Futures, Options and OTC markets and will provide practical applications for key merchandising concepts, including Hedging, Basis, Spreads and Origination.

These events are designed to lead up to the KC Grain Merchandiser Risk Academy coming up in December and will be a great place to get a solid introduction to the topics that will be covered in more depth during that event.

Sign up for the full series of webinars – if you’re unable to attend one of the live webinars, you are encouraged to watch the recording before attending the next installment.
