May 14, 2019 Both care about whether commodity futures markets are contango markets or A futures market is normal if futures prices are higher at longer maturities and This is analogous to a plot of the term structure of interest rates.

A standard theory used to explain commodity futures prices decomposes the futures price into the expected spot price at maturity of the futures contract and a risk premium. This article investigates the term structure of commodity risk premiums. We find that risk premiums vary Kim and Kang (2014) show the importance of the dynamics of the term structure of commodity futures prices as far as commodity risk management is concerned. 3 The interest-adjusted basis is defined A new approach to the commodity futures term structure model is introduced. The most salient feature of this model is that, once the interest rate model is given, the commodity futures price Abstract. Futures markets on agricultural commodities typically trade with maximum maturity dates of less than four years. If these markets did trade with maturities eight or ten years distant, futures prices would have value as price forecasts and as a way to structure long-term swaps and insurance contracts. The term structure of commodities usually refers to the difference between futures prices of different maturities at a given time point. The shape of the futures curve is essential to commodity hedgers and speculators as futures price serves as a forecast of future spot price.
