    Has anybody traded ag OTC products, whether via CME or not? Specifically looking at corn and wheat basis swaps.

    I see that CME offers clearing of corn basis swaps via clearport, but there is zero volume and OI, and the same is true for the MGE corn and wheat indices...good idea but zero trades.

    Considering that, do any of you know of any other options in the OTC space to participate in these swaps? Brokers / companies? Thanks for any help you can provide,

    contact fcstone (clearing house). ag otc products more like a cash market
  3. Like EMG said, try FCS. Atlas, First Capital, et al trade in these products. Depending on your structure (individual, hedge, corp), expect to have a minimum deposit of 1-3 mm, and a networth >5mm.
