KANSAS, July 14, 2023 – Freight Investor Services (FIS) is proud to announce a significant milestone in the derivatives trading space, the first ever Brazil Urea options trade. This development builds on our previous success in the Over the Counter (OTC) options market for NOLA UREA, which includes introducing fertilizer options in October 2022.
The Brazil Urea trade, facilitated by FIS brokers Barnie Talbot-Ponsonby and Taylor Eastman CFA, consisted of a $335 PUT option for SEPT 2023 at $3.50/tonne, with a volume of 5,000 MT. It marked the first options trade outside of the NOLA UREA market.
