TITLE: Challenges and Development of Fuel Oil Futures Market and Risk Management in China

SPEAKER: Professor WANG Zhen


The fuel oil is one of the important oil products and the annual consumption amount was greater than that of gasoline before 2004 in China. It is the only energy commodity freely priced under market oriented mechanism. The empirical results using price and trading volume of the
futures traded on the Shanghai Futures Exchange and Huangpu spots show that Shanghai fuel oil futures market exhibits a highly effective price discovery and hedging function. Theses results have profound implications to deregulate other oil products price and further develop energy derivatives in China.
