Ukraine Seeks Futures Trading for Corn, Barley, Sunflower Oil

Ukraine wants futures for its corn, barley and sunflower oil to be traded in Chicago by the end of this year, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said.

“It is planned to begin new futures for corn, barley and, most importantly, sunflower oil,” Prysyazhnyuk told reporters today in Kiev.

Trading of a Black sea wheat contract was scheduled to begin this month on the electronic network of CME Group Inc. (CME), the world’s largest futures exchange.
