WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

How do you feel about the new risk management opportunities for the polyethylene and polypropylene chains? Excited? Nervous? Cautiously optimistic? However you feel, you can bet that you are not alone. Twenty years ago, when the risk management opportunities were introduced to the energy markets, there were also a lot of questions. Discussing the roles of futures contracts, transparency, liquidity and pricing benchmarks as a community helps markets evolve and gain new efficiencies. Key directors at CME Group (NYMEX became part of CME Group in 2008) who have developed the PE and PP futures contracts, along with the editors of the daily PetroChem Wire newsletter, are pleased to lead the discussion that brings comfort to people in the marketplace to begin using these risk management tools with confidence.
