The unpredictability of commodity prices has long been a pressing issue for farmers, processors, merchants, and consumers in an agriculturally-based economy. Due to their direct exposure to price fluctuations, farmers often find it too risky to invest in potentially profitable ventures. However, there are various strategies that can be employed to address this problem. One such strategy is the agricultural commodity market, which serves as a means to shift risk and lock in prices in advance, rather than relying on uncertain future price developments. Additionally, these markets play a crucial role in the process of price discovery, both as a vehicle for risk transfer among hedgers and from hedgers to speculators.

The primary objective of this book is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the derivatives market, including the various types of derivative markets, the agricultural futures market, the regulation of the commodity market, commodity exchanges, and the role of these exchanges in price discovery. Furthermore, the book aims to raise awareness among all stakeholders in the commodity market, including farmers, processors, merchants, and consumers, about the potential benefits and risks associated with participation in these markets.
