Short-Dated New Crop Options

A new, cost-effective alternative to traditional options, short-dated new crop options expire much earlier, resulting in premiums that are lower because of the reduced time value.  The three contract months are May, July, and September with corn options using the underlying December contract and soybean options using the underlying November contract.  Perhaps one of the biggest benefits to using these new options is the ability to trade high impact events, such as USDA reports or a dramatic change in the weather outlook.
