Following a move by commodity exchanges and boards of trade to longer trading hours, the Grain Farmers of Ontario is extending its Wheat Marketing department’s hours of trading.
Members can now contact the GFO marketing team from 8:45 AM to 3 PM Eastern Standard Time during the days markets are open. GFO’s marketing options, including forward contracting and basis contracting, are available during these times. GFO continues to also offer pool options to its members.
“We’re pleased to announce this opportunity to our members, which will result in more flexibility in the timing of pricing decisions,” said GFO manager of marketing Todd Austin in a media release. “Instead of the traditional four hour window to call in for prices, farmers will now have almost eight hours a day.”
Members can contact the department by calling either 1-800-265-0550 or (519) 767-6537.
