• The workings of a guaranteed minimum price contract

    Chapter 4 - Cotton trading - Guaranteed minimum price contracts 

    • First of all, the buyer and the seller must come to an agreement for the fixed price of the cotton to be bought and sold (fixed price).
    • The seller must try to quantify the risk that he or she wishes to insure, and what he or she is willing to pay for it (insurance premium).
    • The guaranteed minimum price contract is the fixed price less the insurance premium.
