When it comes time to market your grain, we know how difficult it can be to take the emotion out of your decisions given the amount of time, money and resources you’ve poured into your crop all season long. 

In response to some of these challenges, we’ve launched a new marketing system—fueled by a data-driven grain marketing strategy that is focused on your operation’s overall profitability—to provide you with a clearer picture of where you are, where you want to be and how to get there.

FBN℠ HedgeCommand, your grain marketing control center

Available to FBN Market Advisory PRO and SOLO members in the U.S., FBN℠ HedgeCommand is a grain marketing system that integrates data science and market analysis to generate truly personalized recommendations.

HedgeCommand is designed to provide consistent returns over time and strengthens your overall approach to crop marketing in three steps. Here’s how:

1. We start by assessing everything you do to manage risk and then crunch the numbers for you.

Our HedgeCommand system takes an inventory of all the risk management activities in your operation using Profit Center data in your FBN account—your current percent sold, structured contracts, cash sales, futures and options as well as input costs and crop insurance.

2. Next, HedgeCommand gives you the option of applying FBN’s expert analyst view or your own bullish or bearish view on the market. 

HedgeCommand has the unique ability to apply different opinions on the market to your personal operation’s risk management data.

As an FBN Market Advisory member, you get access to daily insights from our team of expert analysts and data scientists which are in turn reflected on your dashboard within HedgeCommand. 

If your opinion contrasts with FBN’s view of the market, you can adjust the slider within HedgeCommand accordingly to reflect your own perspective: very bullish, slightly bullish, slightly bearish or very bearish. 

3. Finally, HedgeCommand uses the information provided to generate recommendations on how to market your crop and hedge price risk using futures and options. 

Once you’ve established where you are today and selected your market view, HedgeCommand generates personalized recommendations based on this data to help you get to where you need to be. You can choose whether you want to use cash contracts or futures to implement the recommendation.

If you’re already a FBN Market Advisory member, you can access HedgeCommand by visiting the Profit Center tab in the FBN app on your desktop or mobile device.
