The interplay between modeling and empirical validation is excellent and provides considerable insight on how commodity prices. Commodity prices are volatile, and volatility itself varies over time.

Changes in volatility can affect market variables by directly affecting the marginal value of storage, and by affecting a component of the total marginal cost of production, the opportunity cost of producing the commodity now rather than waiting for more price information.

I examine the role of volatility in short-run. Our dataset consists of daily prices on 25 commodity futures traded in the US.

Downloadable. In commodity futures markets, contracts with various delivery dates trade simultaneously. Applied researchers typically discard the majority of the data and form a single time series by choosing only one price observation per day.

This strategy precludes a full understanding of these markets and can induce complicated nonlinear dynamics in the data.

This is a very good question, and I’m assuming you are talking about realised volatility and not implied volatility which is a different thing. Volatility is far more predictable than price, and has a number of characteristics which I’ve best seen.

The simulation can reproduce the important observed stylized facts in futures markets price time series, including fat tails, clustered volatility, and long memory in returns distribution. Our results show clustered volatility in returns depends on the level of speculators' imitation behaviors.

Therefore, a range in quarterly volatility from 4% to over 40% since the mids reflects the hybrid nature of gold prices. As the examples point out, commodity volatility over time is high, and there are myriad reasons why commodities are more volatile than other assets.

It is essential to understand what drives the volatility of commodity and its strategy returns. In the time series approach, we show that the volatility strategy return is little correlated with the factor returns represented by the other commodity strategies or theFung and Hsieh () hedge fund factors.

Trading in commodities (oil, precious metals, cattle, rations) is trading a lot of uncertainty and different variables need to be kept in mind as compared to trading currencies or other assets. These markets have different fundamentals meaning that the past and present price swings and long term outlooks can be vastly different to traditional currency or asset markets.

Calculate implied volatility using custom option price and other parameters; calculate option price using volatility. Moskowitz et al. () focus on time-series momentum. Asness et al.

The third theory we will discuss is the theory of theory argues that whether or not a market is in backwardation or contango depends on the relationship between the costs and benefits of holding a commodity.

When the benefits of holding a commodity outweigh the costs, the futures price will be lower than the spot price and the futures curve will be in.
