Market Check’s innovative marketing strategies are based on expert market intelligence and our 22 year track record in the grain marketing industry.
The Strategic Program’s performance on average over the past 4 seasons compared to the NSW, VIC and SA cash track markets net of all management fees, storage and interest. All values compared on a harvest, ‘apples with apples’ basis. See charts for both APW1 and F1.
The Pre-harvest Strategic Program suits growers who are looking to protect downside risk for wheat, barley and canola but also participate if the market rises in the months ahead. Utilising an Options strategy, Market Check can protect your grain price from downward movements, with zero washout risk, whilst maintaining full potential to participate in a stronger market toward harvest if prices improve.
The Strategic Managed Program is our flagship pool and is built around a post-harvest hedging strategy, suiting growers who want access to a premium marketing and price risk management program that involves the strategic use of derivatives such as Futures, Swaps & Options in conjunction with physical sales.
Cash & Call
The Cash & Call Managed Program gives growers the benefit of price certainty and no carry costs through immediate physical grain sales, plus the opportunity to participate in future upside price movements through a Call Options strategy.
Harvest Pools are suitable for growers who want to receive the best possible returns over the harvest period without participating in post-harvest markets. This program also suits growers looking to exit the Pre-harvest Pool who are chasing a harvest price return, or growers wanting Market Check’s skilled marketing team to return the best possible value over the November to January period.
Carry Over Pool
Market Check will open Opportunity Pools depending on the market to help create maximum value for our clients’ grain. Whether it’s an opportunity at a specific time in the market, or due to an out of spec grade the experienced Market Check team has successfully run programs for a variety of non-traditional grades.
The Express Plus Program offers our agency clients access to wholesale domestic markets and flexible payment terms that aren’t offered in the standard retail market. This can be useful if a premium is evident via a trade bid or an arbitrage opportunity exists which the Market Check team can participate in. Express Plus also offers quicker payment terms, deferred payment options and credit insurance covering 90% of the value of the grain.
Advance Plus provides growers with secure payment of cash-flow upfront whilst maintaining control over when the grain is marketed. Growers receive 75% of the value of the grain at harvest, the grain will then be sold at the grower’s request to debtor insured counter-parties, post-harvest. This program gives growers a cash advance at harvest, plus the benefit of marketing their grain over time with the expertise of Market Check’s Strategy and Agency teams.
