Product Overview

A summer intern must explain to his boss the negative correlation between the prices of corn and ethanol for 2006 and the first half of 2007. The negative correlation called into question the use of traditional hedges against corn prices to directly hedge against the volatility in ethanol prices. This case comes with a spreadsheet: UVA-QA-0716X, "Berclays Capital: Corn and Ethanol Prices."
