Abstract: This paper examines the returns and risk of soybean marketing strategies using futures and options. Two conclusions were suggested by the results. First, adding options strategies to traditional cash sales, static futures hedging, and storage hedging activities substantially improves risk-return tradeoffs. Second, adding technical futures hedging strategies to options hedging strategies further improves risk-return tradeoffs.
