|Abstract:||© 2014 by The University of Chicago. All rights reserved. Futures positions of commercial hedgers in wheat, corn, soybeans, and cotton fluctuate much more than expected output. Hedgers’ short positions are positively correlated with price changes. Together, these observations raise doubt about the common practice of categorically classifying trading by hedgers as hedging while classifying trading by speculators as speculation, as hedgers frequently change their futures positions over time for reasons unrelated to output fluctuations, which is arguably a form of speculation.|
