Grains & Crops

Firsthand Experience

While agricultural and soft commodities like corn, cotton, sugar, and wheat tend to operate on shorter cycles than other commodities classes, they are just as susceptible to price rallies and declines. As major media outlets and analysts have focused primarily on the energy and metals sectors over the last decade, our teams have continuously followed the agricultural sector and closely monitor the numerous economic ramifications of food inflation. HTS Commodities has assembled a team of experts, many with firsthand farming experience, all of them with an intimate understanding of both the physical and financial commodity trades. As input costs rise amid global supply chain complications and the global renewable fuel sector has become increasingly important to the grains and oilseeds complexes, our experts partner daily with our energy desk to provide insight on these topics.

In addition to acting as an advisor for hedging transactions, HTS Commodities specializes in acting as an Introducing Broker for the execution of our clients’ futures, options and over-the-counter derivative positions.  Because we are independent of any FCM or provider, our clients have the opportunity to trade through any of our multiple FCM or provider relationships.
