Commodity futures and options

Manage cost/price risk

Many businesses use commodity futures and options to help manage the risk of price fluctuations on commodities they either produce or use to produce goods.

If your business produces a commodity crop, metal or livestock, for example, commodity futures can help reduce the impact of changing market prices. Or if you rely on a commodity for your business operations, futures can provide greater certainty on the cost of that commodity.

And if you buy or sell cross-border, we can help reduce the impact of fluctuating U.S. / Canadian dollar exchange rates through financial futures.

We offer access to all major commodity futures exchange worldwide, and timely, efficient trade execution services on the full range of futures, in various industries including energy, metals, agriculture, softwood and more.
