Advance Trading’s Hedge Management System Software Makes Buying and Selling Commodities Easier than Ever.


Our Hedge Management System (HMS) helps you increase speed
and accuracy, and reduces the risk of human error.

Watch our video to learn how HMS streamlines
the entire purchasing and selling process.

The orders screen , or ledger, gives a live picture of all activity for the day. There are 5 ledgers that make up the Live ledger Screen:


  • Order Summary

  • Offers

  • Quotes


  • HMS offers information directly from CINCH®, AGRIS, AgVantage and numerous other platforms.

  • Users can export information from HMS to virtually any accounting software.

  • Our programmers will work with your accounting software provider to enable data transmission to and from the platform you currently use.

Basis Management

  • HMS employs a live DPR that empowers merchandisers to monitor company purchases and sales in real-time, so you always know exactly how you're positioned.

  • Open Orders

    • Shows all pending and working (offers backed by a ticket working on the exchange) orders.

Advance Trading’s ‘HMS’ is an integrated part of our grain business and has been for 15 years.  We depend on several efficiencies HMS provides, including hedging accuracy and the ability to manage our position in real-time.  The streamlined communication HMS delivers between our Trading Room and our sales team at multiple locations is invaluable.

HMS greatly reduces risks associated with every day grain marketing activities and it makes my job easier because the program was designed using input from users like myself. Plus, it’s like having another person on my staff with all the helpful people at ATI working on our behalf. They take the time to learn how we use HMS, teach us how to better utilize its functionality and they even oversee our entries, catching occasional errors by one of our company users. Therefore, I know I can count on accurate HMS reports to help me make critical merchandising decisions.
