Effects of futures and options trading on farm incomes



Effects of futures and options trading on farm incomes



Staff Report, Economic Research Service, US Department of Agriculture (AGES870911): 21-33



This paper reviews and appraises the effects of options and futures trading on the level and variability of US farmers' incomes. The theoretical and empirical evidence about the benefits of hedging is first reviewed. This evidence suggests that hedging in futures (or options) should be beneficial, but that relatively few farmers use futures or options contracts for hedging.
