Hass Avocados

The market also exhibits considerable price volatility (~3% daily volatility from 2014-2016) with unique dynamics affecting prices, including labor shortages in Mexico, “avocado holidays” like the Super Bowl or Cinco de Mayo, and even political rhetoric. The Hass avocado swap and option contracts are designed to help commercial entities within this market mitigate these risks and plan for the future.
