COA - Thermal Coal Physical and Derivatives Markets

The HedgeTutor's COA subscription mimics the behaviour of the exchange-traded derivatives market based on the spot COAL index price.

  • Follow the evolution of prices and forward curves of your simulated market
  • Trade physical products as they are priced at premium or discount to the Exchange price aand manage your inventory
  • Trade futures, options and swaps to hedge your physical price exposure
  • Evaluate the exposure of your combined physical and financial portfolio to ascertain your overall market risk
  • Follow up margining, credit lines and cash flows
  • Review the financial statements to understand the implications of your trades on your PnL and balance sheet

In addition, HedgeTutor provides:

  • an extensive library of Tutorials that incorporates all theoretical concepts behind trading
