Hi everyone! I'm new here, I'm not a trader and actually not planning to be one, but maybe you can give me some advice re my situation. It's very simple. There is a steel plant just outside of Moscow which needs to purchase roughly 300 mt of nickel every 3 months. Weâd like to hedge now against the price for nickel going up in 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. In my opinion, the easiest way is to buy specific call options. The task is to do it the cheapest way possible. So my questions are: 1. Is it cheaper to talk to investment banks or to do it via online trading account? 2. If it's an online broker, which one is the best (read least expensive) for our needs? - we won't be doing any trading, except for infrequent purchases and exercises of options - we can open account as an individual or company, domestic or foreign - whichever is the easiest Thank you very much for your help!
