Unlike derivatives of ?nancial contracts, commodity options exhibit distinct particularities owing to physical aspects of the underlying. An adaptation of no-arbitrage pricing to this kind of derivative turns out to be a stress test, challenging the martingale-based models with diverse technical and technological constraints, with storability and short selling restrictions, and sometimes with the lack of an e?cient dynamic hedging. In this work, we study the e?ect of storability on risk neutral commodity price modeling and suggest a model class where arbitrage is excluded for both commodity futures trading and simultaneous dynamical management of the commodity stock. The proposed framework is based on key results from interest rate theory.
