1. Where can I find the agreed upon buy/sell price for a futures contract on completion? For example, the farmer and buyer of Wheat agrees on a contract of $4 per bushel by June. The fluctuation of price is absorbed by speculators. Where can I find this "$4", in other words, the agreed upon price set by the original buyer and seller? 2. Why doesnât the price of the commodity STAY at $4? After all, the price was AGREED to be $4. What makes the price fluctuate? Supply and Demand from innumerable sources causes the fluctuation, I suppose, but it's hard for me to wrap my head around. If the price for the contract was agreed to be $4 by June, that's the price it's going to be by June, right? This brings up another question: Say the price will be $4 when the contract expires. If the price is higher than $4 before the contract expires, wouldn't EVERYONE simply short, then make a profit on the KNOWN price of $4?
