Basis risk

• Is the risk in the basis time series. This can be influenced by many variables although the total impact is less than the exposure for a naked position. When a hedge is placed, price risk is transformed into basis risk. Basis risk is substantially less than price or inventory risk in terms of dollars.

• The uncertainty about the basis at the time a hedge may be lifted. Hedging substitutes basis risk for price risk.
