Futures Market Explained

2012 ratings | 159684 views
Farmers use various tools to control the many risks in agriculture. Watching the weather influences when they plant or harvest. Buying crop insurance and selecting farm bill safety net programs helps protect them from crop devastation. But they can also manage some of the threat posed by volatile market prices by participating in the futures market. Farmers can get a feel for how that works if they play Commodity Classic, an online teaching tool that uses fictitious bushels of grain in a fake futures market. But here at Harvest Public Media, we wanted to better understand how the futures market helps both producers and users of a major commodity, such as corn. And how the benefits trickle down to regular food consumers. Here’s what we learned.

This was both really adorable and incredibly helpful for helping me understand Futures. I thought it was to maximize profit but I now understand that is a risk management tool for both parties

so basically, the buyer is hoping for a price rise and the seller for a price drop
Zhadow45 (3 months ago)
no...the seller wants to sell at a higher price. WHy would they want a price drop? If you had a phone and you wanted to sell it. WOuld you want the value of that phone to go up or down? Up, because you want to sell it at a higher price. The buyer wants that value to go down, so he can get it for cheaper.

at around 3:00 it stopped being a good explanation, but it did get really slow and condescending. worst of both worlds.

Michael Green (11 months ago)
but that explains the parties to the futures contract (the hedgers), it doesn't explain the role of speculators
Entheogenesis (11 months ago)
Wouldn't even need Futures if we lived in a Resource Based Economy. Futures are only there to protect against the s.hitty things that come about from having a fiat currency and manipulatable markets which means selling debt and all of the rest of the bull s.hit that goes with the outdated economic systems we have globally.

its funny how this videos are now all about women farmers, and women entrepreneurs, and women traders and women factories and women and more women. The other day I was reading personal finances for dummies and all the examples are with "she".
David Rich (1 month ago)
Yes I noticed the same thing , im not against women progress in the work place but how many women farmers do you know compared to men (very small) , but this equality rubbish or feminist thing puts me off this well made video. . It was ok years back everyone was fine about it. Even my mum says the world's gone completely NUTS with all this diversity

This video explains why my cereal is the same price. But my cereal eventually does change price...like gasoline.
Jason x31x32x33 (9 months ago)
Yes... inflation does gradually drive the price up over time; but your cereal isn't subject to sudden price swings, costing $3.00 a box one week and $7.00 the next (and then back down to $4.00 the following week). That's the kind of price swing the futures market insulates you against.

*Than!
gwho (10 months ago)
uh, no? this video just says "contract. there for profit" The whiteboard video actually explains the steps and terminology. A good video needs to show each step when a price changes. And it needs to explain how a contract is sold or bought to a third party without the other end of the contract changing. Talking really slow, and empahsizing words like "BUY", and "CORN" and pretty pictures don't actually explain the underlying concept. The biggest confusion can be that the buying and selling of the underlying asset is separate from buying and selling the contract. And the contract has two sides, a buyer and seller of the asset. Also, while when a futures contract is sold, simply saying a contract is sold is incomplete. It needs to be specified whether the buying side or the selling side of the contract is sold. Both sides of the contract aren't sold. If you want to learn the actual inner workings of how things work, instead of just thinking you understand something when all you know is the concept at a superficial level (and thus won't be able to explain it properly yourself), watch the "whiteboard" video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwR5b6E0Xo4

This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about "price trends" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried - Piyatthew Forexify Trends - (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my colleague got great success with it.

Hi! Thanks for the video. I'm starting to learn about futures. I already trade Forex and I'm satisfied with my trading. What I'm finding a bit difficult to understand in futures contracts is how do I backtest the contracts that expire monthly, for example? I know I can't trust a continous chart to do it because it's an artificial build, right? This is more common in the mini contracts, right? The full contracts are easier to backtest and do technical analysis because they are just one contract, one chart, so I can go back in time let's say, 3, 4 years and do some technical analysis to determine some critical support and resistance areas. How do futures traders make this analysis with mini contracts that expires every month? Do I have to open a lot of individual charts and write down the most busy S/R areas and then apply it to the most recent chart (contract)? OR can I use the main full contract chart? Will the main full contract chart have the same areas of S/R? This is what I wanna understand so I Can apply my Forex trading skills to the futures. Forex is easy I just need to choose a pair and voilla, I have 20 years of data in the same chart with critical price areas that I can trust. I believe that it's impossible to have a trend following system in mini futures because I need to get rid of my position in 1 month...
Jason x31x32x33 (9 months ago)
agauerm, you ask this question as if the people who made this video were Forex traders. They're just filmmakers who learned enough about this subject to make a decent video. Nuff said.

If you once in this video wondered why the narrator was referring to the farmer as "she", you might be a sexist
