Since the start of the global financial crisis in 2007 and 2008, commodity prices have fluctuated wildly. For many commodities, the price fluctuations during this period have been more extreme than has historically been the case. With such volatility in the market, it is unsurprising that there has been a dramatic increase in disputes between parties to commodities contracts. This article considers the issues which often arise in commodities-based arbitrations.
