However you are responsible for keeping track of your ownprofit/loss situation and for keeping a record of your trades and price activity. For each assignmentyou will trade the specific futures contracts outlined below. Daily settlement times range acrosscontracts and you can find information on daily settlement times at: https://www.cmegroup.com/market-data/settlements/settlements-details.html.This will give you experience paper trading a total of 9 different futures contracts (3 assignmentseach with 3 contracts). Prior to the beginning of each assignment, your task for eachcontract is to study the market and then decide whether to buy (go long) or sell (go short) beforethe first daily settle price is posted.Each student will notify the TA whether they are initially going long or short for each of the3 contracts. This will be handled through Canvas. At the end of the 2 weeks all open positionsare closed and you determine whether you made or lost money based on how prices moved overthe 2 week interval. The TA knows your market position and will check your math in your writtenassignment against the price moves over the 2 week period, for each contract and for your portfolioof all 3 contracts combined. For each futures derivative you will only buy/sell one contract for eachassignment. This means you will hold a total of 3 contracts for each assignment. The contracts willbe entered into on the beginning assignment date and then liquidated on the ending assignmentdate.At the end of each assignment, each student will complete and submit a one page summarywith 50 words on each contract, for a total of 150 words, explaining why the prices tracked acertain way during the 2 weeks. In the write-up, you will be asked to show the calculations behindwhat the per-contract profit or loss is for each of the contracts. As part of the write-up, you willbe required to correctly cite at least one financial news article (WSJ, Economist, Financial Times,Internet article, etc) for each of the commodities when explaining the price movement over the 2week period.
