Commodities Futures Markets: Using Publicly Available Information to Identify Opportunities and Manage Risks 15 January, 2009 - Chicago, USA PRMIA Chicago Chapter Meeting

Do you miss ever-rising commodity prices? (As an example, the NYMEX oil front-month price looks striking.) Please join us on Thursday, January 15 when three distinguished speakers will share with us their insights on using publicly available information to identify opportunities and manage risks in commodity markets.

Presenters and Topics:
  • Hilary Till, Principal, Premia Capital Management, LLC; and Research Associate, EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre. Ms. Till will give examples about how the CFTC's Commitment of Traders (COT) Report of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) can help traders spot opportunities and manage risk in their futures positions.

  • Bill Kokontis, Regional Administrator – Chicago, Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Mr. Kokontis will explain how the CFTC expects the COT report to be used, how it defines "commercial" versus "non-commercial" traders, why these two categories have recently undergone a redefinition and why these changes are expected to improve the utility of this report.

  • Nick Ronalds, Executive Director, FIA Asia and President, RhoFinancial. Mr. Ronalds will talk about how to use publicly available information to keep up with innovations in the new Chinese futures markets.
The meeting will be moderated by Patricia Gillman, U.S. Counsel, Winton Capital Management, Ltd.
