Portfolio Contract Week 5 Corn: The number of future contracts is 10, the number of units in each (1) future contracts is $2,789, and the price per unit is $6.10, while the estimated margin per contract is taken to be $1,250. Therefore, the estimated total margin for all contacts of wheat is 10*$1,250, equals to $12,500. This asset value is 12.5% which is between the given range 5% – 25% in the initial IPS. According to Erick Norland, (2016) corn, wheat, and soy future have been trading in low ranges due to very recent El Niño and strong moves in the U.S dollar. However, this might not last forever due to a variety of many reasons; one being that weather is quite unpredictable. Erick Norland, (2016) argues that due to some of such reasons, the prices of corn, soy and wheat will soon shoot up highly. Crude oil Crude oil futures are one of the highly profitable. Am considering 10 future contracts, whereby each contract has 3,337 units and each goes for $44.95. The estimated margin is $3,200; thus the estimated total margin for all contracts is $32,000. This is higher than 25% as given in the IPS but it’s that way in orders to utilize the $100,000 and since crude oil is most actively traded than the rest. Therefore, crude oil is taken as the least risky of all future contracts. Euro Fx Am investing in 6 numbers of future contracts, whereby each contract is costing $1.13 and the number of units in each contract is 119,417. The estimated margin as provided by cme.com is $3,350, thus the total estimated margin is 6*$3,350 equals to $20,100. This is below the 25% maximum for futures as given in the original IPS. Despite the portfolio risks, taxation, interest

rates risks, and currency risk, the Euro FX is a better option as protects your investment against these foreign risks. Cathy Pareto, (2016) founded that it minimizes currency risks as it can lock current exchange rate by entering into an offsetting currency futures position. Natural Gas Am considering 10 future contracts of natural gas, whereby the number of units in each contract is 14,199 and the price per unit is $2.18. The estimated margin is $1,350, thus the total estimated margin for all contracts is $1,350, and thus the total estimated margin for all contracts is $13,500 which is still under the original IPS plan. Jesse Emspak, (2016) argues that investing in natural gas is good as demand keeps on increasing and increase in prices due to that demand has been seen over the years. He stated: “Despite the seasonality fluctuations, over the years price is heavily influenced by production and distribution”. It’s thus not a risky venture and it has positive returns. Copper Am investing in 8 future contracts of copper, each costing $2.17 and the number of units in each contract is 52,079. The estimated margin is $2,600 making the total estimated margin for all contracts (8*2,600) be 20,800. This is also as per the initial plan as is more than 20.8%. As Amine Bouchentouf, (2016) describes, there’s a commodities future available for copper trading. Though cme.com analysts found its volatility increasing Amine, (2016) holds that the demand fr copper from china, India, and other advanced countries is increasing, thus leading to an overall upward price.
