Futures Basis of RSS3 in the Agricultural Futures Exchange of Thailand
Ribbed smoked rubber sheet no.3 (RSS3) is one of the agricultural commodities in the Agricultural Futures Exchange of Thailand (AFET). Recently, its futures basis has shown volatile behavior. This could reflect its inefficiency as a hedging tool and the inefficiency in AFET itself. This research examines the predictive power of some economic factors. The monthly data during June 2004 to October 2008 were used in the multiple regression analysis. The findings give evidence of statistically significant explanatory powers of the market and macroeconomic information in estimating the futures basis. The AFET could thus be categorized as semi-strong efficiency form of price. The efficiency could be increased by the effective dissemination of knowledge and information to investors to support their investment decision. In addition, the agricultural price risk should be managed through market-based tools.
