Trade Iron Ore Futures


Why trade iron ore futures?



The price volatility noted even before the beginning of the financial crisis clearly illustrated that the mechanism for fixing an annual benchmark price was no longer fit for purpose.

In its place, buyers and sellers have moved to a physical sales programme with prices fixed monthly and quarterly, in addition to spot sales and some annual contracts.

Manage price, risk and exposure

The emergence of short-term trading and index-linked pricing presents a huge opportunity for producers and consumers, banks and traders to manage their price risk and exposure.

Over the last year, iron ore futures have emerged as the leading instrument for hedging and risk management for producers and consumers alike.
