What is Commodity Trading?
Commodities are the group of tradable instruments including: metals, energy and food stock.
The market price of such instruments directly effects the cost of living. The cost of crude oil will effect the cost of filling a car with fuel. The market price of soybeans will effect the cost of food in the supermarket.
Commodity Trading pre-dates stocks and bonds trading, going back in history to ancient civilizations.
Today we have an simple way to trade commodities by using tradable instruments on exchange. These contracts do not require the physical delivery of a product.
