The behaviour of commodity prices, an issue that has received considerable attention from academics, is also a major concern for producers and consumers. Most commodity markets are distinguished by the fact that there is a spot or cash market in which the physical product is sold as well as a forward market in which contracts for future delivery of the product are sold. Our research is based on the problem that weather future treading effect on spot market or not.
1. Commodity Spot Prices: An Exploratory Assessment of Market–Structureand Forward–Trading Effects1By Margaret E. Slade & Henry Thille, September 2004 in this as with most empirical studies of futures prices, we find a p ositive time–series relationship between trading volume and the volatility of spot prices. Moreover,since we deal with multiple related markets, we are able to assess that relationship in the cross section, and we find that it is also positive. Our findings are consistent with the predictions of many destabilizing–speculation and informational models. We can, however, go further. Indeed, we are able to exploit our instrumental–variables technique to distinguish between broad classes of theories that predict a positive relationship.
2. Commodity Derivative Market and its Impact on Spot MarketBy Golaka C Nath and Thulasamma Lingareddy It is expected that futures trading helps in reducing seasonal/cyclical fluctuation in price. We wanted to find out if this has happened in case of the above commodities. the study finds that the introduction of future trading in the selected commodities had apparently led to increase in price of commodity like urad but the same is not true for wheat and gram. The spot prices of all three commodities under study have increased in the post futures period though except for urad, variables are not found statistically significant. The spot prices of these commodities declined after the ban on futures trading was introduced. However, the price volatility increased significantly during the period when futures were allowed. There has been a sharp fall in volatility after the ban of futures in these commodities. Althou gh gram prices too have posted a moderate rise in the post-futures trading period, the impact was not found statistically significant.
whether the index futures trading in India has caused a significant change in spot market volatility of the selected underlying individual commodity. how the index futures trading has affected trading efficiency of the selected commodity.
