Commodity Derivatives


Hello Sir, In this problem, or generally, can we not settle futures with actual goods? In that case we wont have to take the extra 1 rs loss (diff in spot and future price) Video Details Advanced Financial Management - AFM Derivatives Analysis and Valuation 148. O - Illustration #31

Even if you settle with actual good, net gain loss will be same. In current case you will settle the contract with some gain / loss. Add that to the price realized on spot on date of sale - add all the numbers and you will notice that net price paid / received is same. However there may be a scenario ( very rare) in which on date of settlement futures and spot have slight variation - in such a case both may not give same results - but in real life and practically both scenarios, what you mentioned vs what we solved in the Q will have same net cash gain / loss
