Manage price risk with exchange-traded derivatives

Price volatility challenges companies when it comes to managing margins and costs. As buyers scramble to deal with the whiplash of price volatility in 2021, sellers are trying to predict how this will play out in the future. It’s time to figure out how to factor in greater market uncertainty as you plan your future strategy. Fastmarkets provides the settlement prices for a range of cash-settled derivatives. We work with global exchanges to help market participants secure rates and reduce exposure to price volatility.
