Abstract

Commodity prices are significantly more volatile than prices of industrial products. This extreme price instability establishes a need for futures markets in commodities. The main functions of futures trading being hedging against, and speculation on price fluctuations; and it is hedging, that determines the role of speculation. (author's abstract)
