Imagine’s Response to Negative Oil Prices

It was a historic moment to be remembered when crude oil plunged into negative price territory on Monday 20th April 2020. Imagine’s Data, Technical, Development and Professional Services teams stood ready to assist users in ensuring they continued to correctly calculate risk metrics across commodity trading books. While negative prices are not a new thing in financial markets, it was the first time for crude oil to exhibit such behaviour. Standard pricing models (Black Scholes) for commodity future options are not designed to handle negative underlying prices. As such, Imagine applied an ‘early roll’ of the front month contract of May crude to the June expiry as the negative settle price was confirmed.
