This collection of four digest articles provides answers to the following questions:
- When has OPEC spare capacity mattered for oil prices?
- What are the sources of return for CTAs and commodity indices?
- What are the risk-management lessons from high-profile commodity derivatives debacles?
- What determines whether commodity futures contacts succeed or not?
The goal with each of the four digest articles is to provide both industry participants and policy makers with useful insights on the frequently opaque, and always dynamic, commodity markets.
