INTL FCStone to hold energy outlook conference May 9-10

By Susanne Retka Schill | April 16, 2013

Energy markets are subject to worldwide supply and demand factors that are difficult to predict and create commodity price volatility. INTL FCStone Inc. is planning its first energy outlook conference to address both oil and biofuel outlooks and discuss available risk management tools.

The first day of the conference, set for May 9-10 in Kansas City, features speakers from FCStone LLC giving a short course on futures hedging and options. The second day speakers include a spokesman from the federal reserve bank along with analysts discussing supply and demand factors in U.S. and international oil supplies as well as giving an ethanol and biodiesel outlook.

FCStone has long offered short courses on risk management tools, but this is the first to combine that with policy and outlook information. “We’re modeling this on an outlook conference we do in the summer in Chicago for the food industry,” Kent Coughlin, director of public relations, explained.
