000014692 520__ $$aMost new futures contracts fail. This study estimates the effects of several factors on the success or failure of agricultural futures contracts. Commodities with futures markets and without futures markets are included. Characteristics for which no data exist, such as homogeneity, vertical integration, buyer concentration, and activeness of the cash market, are measured by the Delphi approach. An active cash market is found to be necessary for futures contract success since this variable alone perfectly predicts whether or not a commodity has a futures market.
