We will explore the main differences between physical and paper transactions as well as the pros and cons of exchange-traded vs. OTC products. We will show how to trade and understand the use of futures, forwards and swaps to mitigate market risk. The course will also provide an overview of option contracts and hedging and speculation strategies using options and simple structures. This applied course will also cover strategic and tactical issues for alternative hedging strategies used by producers and end-users.
