so the local elevator apparently does not offer DEC12 corn contracts. I will start farming next year. I'm looking to lock in prices at a set level (say 6.50 for example). Since I can't hedge through the elevator, I thought i'd get clever and hedge electronically through my Ameritrade account...I want to know if i am thinking of this correctly.. If the DEC12 contract hit 6.50, i sell 3 contracts in my ameritrade accounts. If corn goes up, I simply sell my physical crop for the higher price and eat the electronic loss, averages out to 6.50 minus slippage between elevator's bid vs. CBOT bid (5 cents usually)... Is this a sound way to hedge my corn?
