Commodity Futures


commodity futuresWhat are commodity futures?

Freight or commodity futures are financial contracts, almost like an insurance.

These allow producers, users and investors to manage the risk associated with volatile commodity prices.

 

Why trade commodity futures?

By utilising such tools participants are able to achieve a fixed future cost or income, which in turn allows them to more accurately plan for the future and reduce their business risk.

An effective risk management policy can therefore help protect a business from financial loss allowing it to weather the highs and lows of market cycles more easily.

Today companies of all sizes use such tools to help secure the future of their business.
