Futures Explained

A futures contract is an agreement between a buyer and a seller to exchange a specific asset, such as gold, oil or coffee, at a future date for a price agreed to today.

Traditionally a futures contact brings together two types of market participants; those who wish to mitigate risk (hedgers) and those who wish to profit from risk (speculators). Simply put, futures are an efficient method to exchange risk from one party to another.

For example, a ‘hedger’ can sell a futures contract to protect themselves against price fluctuations. While buying a futures contract will allow a ‘speculator’ to potentially profit from changes to an assets value.
