Quintessential Derivatives: Futures, Forwards, Options and Swaps

Derivatives are probably the most interesting financial instruments, because they can derive their value from almost anything. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange trades (basically bets) on weather patterns such as snowfall, temperature and frost! There are futures traded on hurricanes. How about that for Macabre!
