The new Lumber futures and options contract reflects changing production patterns, which makes it a more effective risk management tool for market participants. Lumber futures are physically delivered to the Chicago Switching District, allowing for a broader market participation from both western and eastern producing mills. Additionally, Lumber futures are sized at a single truckload to enable more tailored risk management strategies.
