Looking for more hands on training with price risk management tools?

I’m looking for up to 8 producers (focus on those with some/all cotton production) to participate in a free futures trading educational experience. I will work closely with these folks over the winter months discussing hedging, options, and other aspects of price risk management. The experience can continue through the 2013 growing season for those that would like to see how various pricing strategies play out. I will utilize an online futures simulation program that will provide all the “sights and sounds” of actual futures/options trading without the costs and real world ramifications (i.e., margin calls, etc)! FACTSim is an online futures trading simulation tool that can help users understand the intricacies of futures and options pricing.

If you are interested and would like more information drop me a line (jmr26@msstate.edu, 662-325-7986).
