Lumber End User
StoneX can help manage the risks associated with lumber price volatility for end users such as lumber dealers, homebuilders and truss manufacturers. Using futures, options or other innovative tools, the StoneX Forest Products Group can help protect the value of physical inventories. There may also be opportunities to provide long-term fixed price protection to offset risks against forward sold jobs. Our proprietary databases include cash and futures pricing spanning decades to provide a comprehensive understanding of their interrelationships. We can also support implementation of more-complex strategies such as basis trading, spreading and delivery/EFP transactions.
Our Forest Products Group is dedicated to providing educational and advisory services to help clients fully understand risk and the risk management process. Based on your individual needs and risk tolerance, we can design and implement a specific program that reflects your objectives. Please call a forest products specialist for more details.
