Commodity Futures are contracts to buy specific quantity of a particular commodity at a future date. It is similar to the index futures and stock futures but the underlying happens to be commodities instead of stocks and indices. Commodity futures market has been in existence in India for centuries. The Government of India banned futures trading in certain commodities in 70s.However trading in commodity futures has banned permitted again by the government in order to help the commodity products ,traders, and investors. World-wide , commodity exchanges originated before the other financial ex\changes. Infact most of the derivatives instruments had their birth in commodity exchanges. Commodity markets are markets where raw or primary products are exchanged. These raw commodities are traded on regulated exchanges, in which they are bought and sold in standardized Contracts. Commodity Future is a Derivative

instrument where the underlying asset is a commodity. Commodity future are exchanges traded contracts to sell or buy standardized futures contract.

Participants of Commodities Market:
The participants who trade in the commodity derivatives markets can be classified as follows;

(a) Hedgers:
Hedgers are participants who use commodity derivative instruments to hedge / eliminate the price risk associated with the underlying commodity asset held them. Hedgers are those who protect themselves from the risk associated with the price of an asset by using derivatives. A person keeps a close watch upon the prices discovered in trading and when the comfortable price is reflected according to his wants, he sells futures contracts. In this way he gets an assured fixed price of his produce.

In general, hedgers use futures for protection against adverse future price movements in the underlying cash commodity. Hedgers are often businesses, or individuals, who at one point or another deal in the underlying cash commodity. Take an example: A Hedger pay more to the farmer or dealer of a produce if its prices go up. For protection against higher prices of the produce, he hedge the risk exposure by buying enough future contracts of the produce to cover the amount of produce he expects to buy. Since cash and futures prices do tend to move in tandem, the futures position will profit if the price of the produce rise enough to offset cash loss on the produce.

(b) Speculators : Speculators are participants who bet on future movements in the price of an asset i.e. I commodity to make short term gain from the price movements. Commodity future s

give theme the leverage so to take risks on nominal margin payments and thereby increasing for bigger gains or losses. Speculators are some what like a middle man. They are never interested in actual owing the commodity. They will just buy from one end and sell it to the other in anticipation of future price movements. They actually bet on the future movement in the price of an asset. They are the second major group of futures players. These participants include independent floor traders and investors. They handle trades for their personal clients or brokerage firms. Buying a futures contract in anticipation of price increases is known as ‘going long’. Selling a futures contract in anticipation of a price decrease is known as ‘going short’. Speculative participation in futures trading has increased with the availability of alternative methods of participation. Speculators have certain advantages over other investments they are as follows: • If the trader’s judgement is good, he can make more money in the futures market faster because prices tend, on average, to change more quickly than real estate or stock prices. • Futures are highly leveraged investments. The trader puts up a small fraction of the value of the underlying contract as margin, yet he can ride on the full value of the contract as it moves up and down. The money he puts up is not a down payment on the underlying contract, but a performance bond. The actual value of the contract is only exchanged on those rare occasions when delivery takes place.

(c) Arbitrageurs:

rubber. . Another feature of commodities is that they are commonly available. in simple words are any goods that are common and unbranded. The players in the spot market are the actual producers and the consumers of the commodities. wheat. silver. You may be surprised to know that in the US commodities markets there are futures available even on cattle. Commodities. These markets can be broadly classified into spot market and futures market. jute. For e. To understand the commodity derivatives markets it’s necessary to clear about ‘commodities’. cotton etc. pepper. Producers. Commodity Derivatives: A commodity derivative derives its value from an underlying asset which is necessarily a commodity. consumers . Commodity markets represent the formal system for the interplay of demand for and supply of commodities.Arbitrageurs work at making profits by taking advantaged of existence of difference in prices of the same product across different markets (MCX and NCDEX). sugar. Commodities for immediate delivery are traded through the spot market. (d) Investors : Investors are participants having a a longer term view as compared to speculators when they enter into trade in the commodes market.etc. Eg Farmers.g.. Gold. apple juice can be a commodity whereas the ‘Real’ apple juice cannot be called a commodity. are some of the common commodities.

so that even if the prices happen to rise later. he can still manage to sell at the price at which the contract was struck. However in India options on commodities are not available and are expected to be introduced soon. the various derivatives based on commodities. so that even if the prices happen to fall after three months.The other type of market called the ‘Futures market’ is for facilitating contracts for future delivery. These are generally the actual consumers or the producers of the commodities. Arbitragers and investors. The large scale consumers of the products can also make use of the futures to secure their purchase. The players in the futures markets are Hedgers. Arbitraging is a very profitable business. Usually traded ones are the futures and options. For eg: A wheat farmer who expects his harvest to be over in 3 months time may sell a futures contract with an expiry of three months. they can take opposite positions in the futures market. The other major group of participants in the commodity futures market are the importers and the exporters. Since they have confirmed obligations to export/import fixed quantity of commodities at a particular period of time. Arbitrage is a process of making profits using the price differences between two markets without exposing oneself to any risk. It is . For eg: A cold drinks can manufacturing company may buy tin futures. Hedgers are those who hold simultaneous positions in the spot market also. thy can be assured of the supply of raw materials at the pre-determined price. (Please go through the material on ‘Futures and Options’ to understand about futures) These markets make available for trading.

It is a lot cheaper to buy/sell one futures contract than to buy/sell the underlying instrument. meaning that to take a position only a fraction of the total value needs to be available in cash in the trading account. orange juice etc are not so readily available to the retail trader and are more expensive to trade in terms of commission and spread. Liquidity The involvement of speculators means that futures contracts are reasonably liquid. However. Advantages of commodity trading: Leverage Commodity futures operate on margin. For example.positions (mark to Market or MTM) so that the buyers and sellers do not carry a risk of not more than one day. one full size S&P500 contract is currently worth in excess off $250.

There is no 'uptick rule' for example like there is with stocks. You might find a truck of corn on your doorstep! Actually. Low margin requirements can encourage poor money management.Futures contracts can be sold as easily as they are bought enabling a speculator to profit from falling markets as well as rising ones. leading to excessive risk taking. This can take some take and the risk of slippage occurring can be high. Once the trade is filled the pit trader informs the broker who then then informs his client.

An option on a commodity futures contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties that gives the buyer. Sometimes. within a specific time period. The buyer finds the precise commodity that suits him--perhaps an orange that has ripened to the proper degree--pays his money and becomes the owner of the merchandise. to exercise his option. who pays a market determined price known as a "premium. For example. The buyer and the seller agree today on a description of the product that will be delivered .

the quality of the commodity frequently is not known. . and merchandiser to ascertain their likely cost for coffee and develop long range plans is limited. no one knows the exact total supply of a commodity. and inventory figures are not precise.in satisfaction of the contract. Thus contributing to the complexity of determining an appropriate price. The buyer makes payments as agreed. such as coffee. Prices and Price Factors In a competitive market system. there are many relatively small producers scattered over a wide geographic area. Futures trading. processor. These widely dispersed producers find it difficult to know what prices are available. as is new production. with commodities that compete in world or national markets. provides the industry with a guide to what coffee is worth now as well as today's best estimate for the future. and the opportunity for producer. used in the Midwest for grains and similar farm commodities since 1859. and adapted for coffee in 1955. However. The prices at which sellers offer to sell their goods and buyers bid to buy them are based on their best current assessments of the supply and demand for the commodity. Usually. buyers and sellers determine prices for commodities through their transactions in the marketplace. and the seller will deliver the asset at a designated site on a specified date. in the United States most commodities are produced by many firms. For example. The total supply available usually is an estimate. Storage and ownership also are fragmented. The system works quite well when the cost of producing the commodity is known and the selling price is presently acceptable to a buyer. In addition.

markets must cope with such unknowns. . some who may have planned to use a product may decide to use less. users will deplete existing supply and a shortage may develop. if the price is right. for example. Price is a rational. the supply of a commodity should balance the demand for it--production should match use. Since most commodities trade internationally and are affected by incompletely reported situations in other countries.Even with its problems. price influences production and consumption. Changing prices may alter consumers' intentions regarding the quantity of a close substitute commodity they want--or whether they want it at all. based as it is on what people may decide they wish to buy. Demand is even more difficult to measure. Markets are the nerve system of our decentralized economic system. enabling us to respond stimuli and produce goods and services efficiently and changing prices force to adjust and moderate our consumption pattering. If enough users are priced out of the market. or they may select a substitute--eat chicken instead of beef. go without. If the price is too low. price may turn down which may encourage more use and discourage production. If the price is too high. prices are the impulses conveyed throughout the system. U. commodity price reporting system generally is better and reports are more available publicly than commodity reports from many other countries.S. Markets and prices play vital roles in our economy system and help to determine our standard of living. Subsequently. In other words.S. prices for goods in the marketplace play a vital role in our economic system and help to efficiently allocate scarce resources. prices may rise. the U. which will tend to discourage marginal buying. However. The availability of a substitute may change the demand picture for the original product as well as for the related one.

he would have a loss if prices fell. futures markets provide a competitive way for commodity producers. To hedge. Since the merchant owns the commodity. to hedge an unsold inventory of cotton with a sale of an equivalent amount of futures contracts. While there is no way to eliminate uncertainty. and others who may own the actual commodity to transfer some price risk to speculators who will willingly assume such risk in hopes of making a profit. Processors and merchandisers are guided by the prices that people are willing to pay for their goods. and at contract expiration converge to one price. parallel to each other). When the . it supplies information on price which reflects buyers' and sellers' current view on a commodity's value and provides a means to transfer the price risk of holding these items in inventory for later sale. for example. merchandisers. Now if prices drop. Transferring Risk: Hedging Commodity production and marketing involve sizable price risks. Once in the marketing system. based on estimates of what consumers are willing to buy and how much they are willing to pay. goods are channeled from point of production to processor and distributor and on to the consumer. and risk represents a cost which affects the value of a commodity. it is possible for a cotton merchant.Should price remain relatively high this would likely promote production or attract additional supply of good. the cash market loss will be at least partially offset by a gain on the futures contract. processors. Since futures and cash prices tend to move together (that is. The process of hedging involves the concurrent use of both cash and futures markets. Their marketing decisions are made independently. the merchant would sell futures contracts. Futures trading does not enter directly into these channels.

For instance. silver or platinum by buying a futures contract. A jewelry manufacturer can determine the cost for gold. but does not own enough cotton to produce the cloth. unsold inventory can sell futures contracts that will protect the value of the inventory. Hedging permits forward pricing of products. Quoting such a price before buying the cotton would make him vulnerable to a price rise. He now has a price for raw material to which operating and production costs can be added to arrive at a base price for cloth. a livestock feeder does not have to wait until his cattle are ready to market before he can sell them. even if the price of the commodity drops. he has some assurance that a rise in futures prices would lessen the impact of a rise in the cost of the actual cotton. but having bought futures in a quantity equivalent to his needs. translate that to a price for the finished products. He can take advantage of good prices even though the cattle are not ready for market. Here are three examples of how hedging helps the cash market work better: Hedging stretches the marketing period. Hedging protects inventory values. he will simultaneously lift his hedge by buying back his futures contracts at the lower price. could hedge by buying enough futures contracts to cover the forward sale of cloth. Conversely. Having . a cotton mill owner who wanted to sell a customer a quantity of cloth for delivery some months from now. A merchandiser with a large. and make forward sales to stores at firm prices. The futures market permits him to sell futures contracts to establish the approximate sale price at any time between the time he buys his calves for feeding and the time the fed cattle are ready to market. some four to six months later. The gain on his futures contracts should roughly equal the merchant's loss in the cash market.merchant sells his inventory at the lower cash market price.

silver. but not the obligation. It requires skill and knowledge acquired only by study and experience. These are just a few ways that futures markets are used by commodity owners. There are many factors to consider in deciding whether to hedge with futures. while a hedge transfers price risk.made the forward sales. For this reason. or simply forward contract in the cash market. the holder of a put option can protect against a drop in the value of that inventory. But market users should be forewarned that hedging is not an academic exercise. the buyer of an option can acquire the right. to buy or sell a futures contract at a specified price within a specified period of time (as stated in the option contract). options on the actual commodity and/or options on futures contracts are popular among people who seek price protection. With the payment of a premium. . but remain free to gain from an increase in the price of the commodity held in inventory. Finally. buy or sell an option on a futures contract. for example. it also denies the opportunity to gain from favorable price movements in the cash market. Adapting basic principles to individual situations tests the ingenuity of hedgers and demonstrates the management flexibility provided by futures trading. In this way. the manufacturer can use its capital to acquire only as much gold. A detailed discussion of this topic goes beyond the scope of this brief publication. For more information. consult your library or contact the exchange which trades the commodity of interest. but who do not wish to miss a favorable price movement. or platinum as may be needed to make the products that will fill its orders.
