XIO - Iron Ore Physical and Derivatives Market

The HedgeTutor's XIO subscription mimics the behaviour of the iron ore exchange-traded derivatives market based on the spot 62% Fe CFR China index price. The HedgeTutor's trading and price risk management learning experience results from the interaction between the physical and financial markets that are simultaneously simulated:

  • Follow the evolution of prices and forward curves for Iron Ore 62% CFR China of your simulated market
  • Trade physical products (Iron Ore 58% Fe and 65% FE CFR China) and manage your inventory
  • Trade swap futures, options and swaps based on this contract 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 generated by your trades
  • 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
