Abstract

In this paper we test the empirical implications of a simple pricing model for commodity futures for the marginal process of prices of sugar futures. According to the pricing model, the futures price bias depends linearly on the conditional variance. We find significant coefficients, from monthly as well as daily data, if the conditional variance is modelled using the GARCH-M model. These estimates imply contango in the futures marked and a net hedging demand on the long side of it.
