Written by Brett Linton

Our upcoming Introduction to Steel Hedging: Managing Price Risk course will run LIVE in-person on Feb. 14-15, 2022, in Tampa, Fla. alongside the Tampa Steel Conference.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet face-to-face with our expert instructors to gain a thorough introduction to hedging in the flat-rolled steel market and to take advantage of live class discussions and networking.

Would you like to learn how to protect your business and minimize the risk associated with unfavorable price changes by understanding what exactly is meant by “hedging a position”? Take the beginner’s course and you will quickly gain a concrete understanding of hedging basics. You will also learn what benefits and risks are involved in choosing a steel hedging strategy.

This workshop will help you to understand:

  • What “hedging” is and why so many companies do it
  • What makes hedging in steel different from hedging in other commodities
  • The structure of the market and the mechanics of how trades are executed
  • The costs and risk involved

Led by hedging and metals expert Spencer Johnson of StoneX, this workshop will benefit anyone who is looking for a concise introductory or refresher course.

We will also be offering alternative dates for the virtual training on April 26-27, 2022, for those who are unable to make the February course.
