    Is there a fundamental reason for March being at a discount? It looks like a low risk trade on the long term( short dec/long Mar ).


  2. 1) Storage is being "discouraged" in an inverted market. :cool:
    2) Be careful with slippage and illiquidity in the deferred months. :(

    Yes, but the curve seems "normal" until Mar 12. I have seen inverted markets in metals but not this way.
  4. Just a bad print. Curve is normal.

    On your snapshot, it seems Dec is 0.05 $ over Mar, like on my curve.

    I didn't notice that further expiries were also cheaper. Is it an anticipation of cheaper prices for 2012?:)
  6. It's "different" this time. :eek: :cool:
