Furthermore, big companies are also trying to adopt worldwide practices such as using CME, Reuters, and Plats as trading platforms and speculate on futures contracts and use options to hedge their own risks during especially volatile periods of the season.


All these hedging tools may seem to be a common thing to our fellow traders in the EU and US, but it is a huge step forward for Ukraine. It also goes to show how much we have improved during the last couple of years. With more and more market participants using hedging tools, it opens up opportunities for big companies around the world to provide their services in Ukraine. For example, in the US it is a widespread practice where farmers who do not have enough time to monitor every single thing that is going on around the world, give their harvest to traders, pay them a small commission, and are then guaranteed to get the average market year price as revenue. This is a great tool that allows farmers to focus on their area of competence (growing crops) and 
