CME Group will enter the Australian wheat market next month by launching a futures contract based on an export price index calculated by S&P Global Platts, the Chicago-based exchange said on Wednesday. The move extends CME's global reach in grain markets, after its launch last year of a European Union wheat contract, and also marks a push to cater for derivative deals not traded on exchanges. The Australian futures will launch on July 24, pending regulatory approval, as a cash-settled contract without physical delivery, priced in relation to Platts' daily assessment of Australian Premium White (APW) wheat, CME said.
