The concept of futures trading started in Chicago in 1848 as a way to protect grain farmers and their customers from risk. A market for buying and selling contracts for the delivery of grain in the future meant farmers could protect or hedge against extreme price swings for their crops after droughts or bumper harvests. Merchants could lock in a purchase price. They could use the market to effectively sell the crop before the farmers put it in the ground. The concept evolved into todays future and options trading and turned Chicago into the risk management capital of the world.
Now almost anything can be traded in futures. Energy, metals and currency included. The value of contracts traded in Chicago each year equates to a whopping thousand million million dollars.
But todays traders no longer need to shout load and fight for position in the pit to make their millions. Now almost all trading floors are computerised. 95% of all trades in Chicago now come via the internet.
So whether they are dealing with currencies futures, shares or complicated financial instruments, most of the worlds traders buy and sell via their computer screens.
