Decade of Weather Derivatives Markets!!!

20 November 2007  |  4011 views  |  0

After nearly a decade of weather derivatives trading, the exchange traded weather risk products started picking up in volumes and popularity, but still there are a lots of interesting points to observe in OTC trading volume, liquidity, trading infrastructure etc..

As per the WRMA’s 2007 industry survey total number of contracts traded worldwide for both OTC and Exchange was 730,087 for the period April 2006 through March 2007. It is a decline of around 270,000 contracts from 2006’s total trading contracts. The trading value of the contracts in CME has reduced by nearly 26 billion dollars from 2006 to 2007; still the volumes and the values of the contacts of 2007 are substantial higher than other pervious years… point to be noted.

In the face of new global climate challenges, will the weather derivatives markets grow substantially?  Is it still too far for the retail customers to participate actively in this market?  Will the volumes in Y2008 be pointers to what is to come in the years ahead? …….
