Price stability is not common on commodity markets, it is exceptional. Futures markets provide hedging techniques to mitigate risks of price fluctuations. To know how to use futures contracts and options seems vital for the survival of corporations whose business activity depends on fluctuations of agricultural and food commodity prices. The management of price risk is part of the activity of any operator along the food chains: form farmer to consumer, including elevators, processors and retailers. Their survival is at stake.Two new chapters are included in this second edition, one on risks related to structured products and the other on new markets (carbon, climate).
