Hedging asset price volatility through futures contracts
Markiewicz & Co.’s specialist futures brokers work with our private clients to leverage and trade a wide variety of commodities, trade indices, currencies and other financial products that are transacted on highly regulated and transparent global futures exchanges.
A futures contract creates an obligation to buy or sell an asset at a set future date, for a pre-agreed price. Offering similar benefits to options trading, futures trading provides a mechanism for hedging the price volatility of an underlying asset.
Markiewicz & Co. offers access to a wide range of futures markets, including:
- Major trade indices (such as the SPI, Nikkei, FTSE and S&P500)
- Currencies (AUD, EUR, JPY and more)
- A diverse range of physical commodities (crude oil, wheat, soybeans, gold, copper)
- Global interest rates
Private clients have the choice of trading futures via an advanced online platform or direct trade through one of our experienced and accredited futures advisers.
