Strong basis

A relatively small difference between 

Cash

 prices and 

Futures

 prices. An investor who wants to protect against rising prices would prefer that the 

Basis

 weaken, thus increasing his/her unrealized gain. An investor who wants to protect against falling prices will prefer that the 

Basis

 strengthen, thus minimizing 

Unrealized loss

.
