Abstract:

We propose a more precise measure for the convenience yield on commodity futures markets by taking the difference between the short-term basis and a similarly defined long-term basis. We label this measure “relative basis” and show that our relative basis measure is more closely related to the scarcity of inventories of individual commodities. In both Fama-MacBeth regression and portfolio sorting analysis, our relative basis measure subsumes the traditional basis measure in forecasting commodity futures returns. Interestingly, for financial futures contracts, which are not subject to physical inventory constraints, the relative basis measure is no longer a significant predictor of subsequent futures returns, whereas the return predictability from the traditional basis measure becomes more significant and important.
