Prices have fallen and rebounded. Volatility has increased. Historical correlations have not held. Economic news remains mixed. Is this the new norm or the beginning of a new cycle? Hedging is supposed to create a good news/bad news story. Avoid a potential bad news/bad news story by evaluating the costs of potential hedging strategies coupled with your business economics.
In this webinar, Chatham will cover the following learning objectives:
– Learn the possible benefits of matching your hedging program to current market conditions
– View and discuss how well-designed hedging programs created 5+ years ago have not fared well over the past 12 months
– Top mistakes to avoid and the most cost effective approaches to minimize your commodity risk
