Interest-Free Margin Loans to Help Manage Your Crop Marketing Risk

Futures and options are useful tools for helping manage crop marketing risk. Using these tools as part of a disciplined hedging strategy can be beneficial for farmers because they provide more flexibility than trying to manage price risk in the cash grain market. Futures and options also help keep you in control of your grain’s destination so you can take advantage of regional basis opportunities throughout the marketing year.

So how can a margin loan help make futures and options a beneficial option for you?

Margin calls are used to quickly fund your brokerage account when the margin fluctuates. Farmers are often averse to tying up capital to meet margin calls or might not have enough liquid capital to do so. That’s where a margin loan comes in, giving you dedicated funds to use on margin calls when the market changes, so you can use your operational line of credit to run your operation.

Interest-free margin loans to manage your hedges

Now through September 30, FBN Finance is offering new Market Advisory subscribers interest-free margin loans up to $25/acre on a line of credit up to $300,000. Having dedicated funds to use on margin calls means market fluctuations and your marketing decisions don’t deplete your operation’s capital reserves. 

Instead of making hedging decisions based on available capital in order to meet margin calls, you can integrate futures and options into an effective crop marketing strategy.

Personalized crop marketing recommendations to fit your needs

In addition to a margin loan up to $300,000 with zero interest up to $25/acre, FBN offers a personalized brokerage experience with expert guidance backed by data.
