COMMODITIES
overview

Trading commoditites

Trading with commodities is one of the most ancient trading instruments. A commodity is a basic good used in commerce that is interchangeable with other commodities of the same type. The sale is usually carried out through futures contracts. Commodities are traded not in shares but in contract sizes. Before a certain commodity can be traded on a capital market, its price and quality must be meticulously determined. You can buy and sell futures contracts at your convenience, without physically trading the raw material itself.

  • Trading commodities often works as a hedge against inflation or unfavorable conditions of the market (e.g. a monsoon- if we’re talking about farming). Another example of a traded commodity is gold which can be used as a hedge in the event where a currency depreciates or an economy collapses.
  • The most popular way to trade commodities is through a futures contract on a specialized exchange. The futures contract is an agreement to buy or sell an amount of a commodity at a specified time and price.
  • By doing this, big businesses who use a certain commodity can protect themselves from disastrous price swings.

    Low Risk

    When trading in commodities, the trader is trying to make a profit on the differences in the value of underlying assets. If a trader reaches a determined extreme, all trading will be blocked.

    Diversification

    Investing in commodities ensures diversification and improves risk-adjusted returns as a diversified portfolio with a low correlation between its assets tends to have less volatile returns.
