Managing Overnight Corn Price Risks: E*Hedging Versus Tokyo


  • Leuthold, Raymond M.
  • Kim, MinKyoung


This study investigates whether U.S. corn merchants can effectively manage the overnight price risk of cash corn purchased after the Chicago Board of Trade closes at 1:15 p.m. on either the electronic Project A market or in the corn contract traded on the Tokyo Grain Exchange. While neither market provides a very effective alternative using traditional measures of analysis, e*hedging on Project A is more effective than hedging in Tokyo. Both could be very effective for those merchants in the market every day. However, trading of corn futures contracts on Project A remains thin and likely illiquid, limiting its usefulness.
