As its name implies, our Freedom® Tech℠ program uses technical indicators to set pricing. Buy and sell signals are set in place so you know exactly what to expect and when. This program combines technical indicators with professional implementation for a balanced approach.
Remove emotion and provide additional diversification in your risk management plan by taking advantage of back-test, optimized technical indicators to price the bushels.

Program Attribute: Technically Triggered Pricing
The stochastic (momentum) indicator reaches overbought territory and starts to turn over, reflecting weakness. When this happens, 25% of bushels are sold.
The stochastic indicator reaches oversold territory and starts to turn up, reflecting potential price strength. If the buy signal is reached and two sell signals were previously triggered, then 10% of bushels are purchased. However, the Freedom® Tech℠ program will never trigger more than two buy signals in a row. After a buy signal, the following sell signal will increase the number of bushels sold by the number of bushels bought.
(If the pricing mechanism does not price 100% of the bushels, the remainder of the unpriced bushels will be priced using the market close on the final day of pricing.)
All bushels are guaranteed to price. Basis may be attached at any time during the pricing period. Standard HTA policies and fees may apply.
†Price Balance Option (PBO) is available for an additional $0.04 per bushel.
