An empirical analysis of systemic risk in commodity futures markets

Abstract : This thesis aims at studying systemic risk in commodity futures markets. A whole strand of the literature is dedicated to the "financialization of commodity markets", but also to the influence of the existence of futures markets on the spot price of their underlying asset. Indeed, since these commodity futures have been largely used by in asset management as diversifying assets, their financialization has raised concerns, especially seeing the evolution of their price, which seems to be similar to that of financial assets. My interest here is thus to quantify this systemic risk, provide a toolbox to assess the consequences of various scenarios (stress tests), but also to assess which markets should be monitored more closely (because they could threaten the real economy or the whole system).
