We Partnered with CQG to Automate Hedging Workflows for Grain Buyers

We partnered with CQG, a leading global provider of high-performance technology solutions for traders, brokers, commercial hedgers, and exchanges, to automate futures hedging for physical grain trading in Barchart’s award-winning commodity trading platform, cmdtyView.  

By integrating CQG’s Hedge Management System (HMS) with cmdtyView, merchandisers and grain buyers can easily automate the hedging of their physical grain contracts, reducing risk and streamlining workflows.  cmdtyView is then connected across the grain supply chain to farmers for submitting offers via Barchart’s Marketplace apps, as well as to grain accounting and ERP providers for managing contracts, tickets, and positions; and to futures brokerage firms for execution and clearing.  Through this partnership, we offer a complete solution for the entire trade lifecycle, through to post-trade risk management.

Delivered as part of Barchart’s enterprise solutions for agribusiness, Barchart helps automate the entire grain origination, grower engagement, and risk management process for global agriculture:

Grower Apps (Marketplace): 

Elevator-branded mobile apps that connect farmers directly into merchandiser workflows with access to scale tickets, contracts, balances, settlements and offers right on their phone.

Offer Management

Producers can easily submit offers to sell their grain via a Marketplace App and receive instant updates from elevators when offers are accepted.

Hedge Management

Merchandisers and grain buyers can reduce risk through automated hedging of their physical grain contracts directly in cmdtyView.

Accounting Automation 

Merchandisers can easily supply their producers with real-time ERP data from industry-leading vendors.  With contract data from your accounting provider, your producers will know exactly where they stand. Here are some of our integration partners:


With eSign capabilities, grain buyers can quickly issue paperless grain sale contracts to their producers, helping save time and money.

Connected Chat

Close deals faster with real-time chat capabilities.  Merchandisers can effortlessly negotiate grain offers in real-time with chat that links to their producers’ phones.
