Platinum Hedging

What is a hedger? A hedger in the platinum market is an individual who uses the futures market to offset price risk when intending to sell or buy the actual platinum. Hedging is possible because the platinum cash prices and platinum futures prices tend to move in the same direction. However, the difference between the cash price and the futures price may narrow or widen. The change in the difference between the cash price and the futures price is called basis risk. Because of the changing basis no hedge can be perfect.

Where can platinum be hedged? Platinum can be hedged on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX). The NYMEX offers a competitive and transparent market place to engage in efficient hedging strategies. If you are interested in hedging platinum please contact us. One of our experienced platinum traders will be happy to give you a call to discuss hedging strategies with you.
