Commodities trading

Commodity trading involves the exchange of various assets based on the price of a physical commodity. The commodity market is a high-risk and high-reward market that requires trading experience and a decent level of knowledge.
For investors, commodities can be an important way to diversify their trading portfolios beyond traditional securities. Since commodity prices tend to move in the opposite direction to stock prices, some investors also rely on commodities during times of market volatility.

The most traded commodities

The commodity market can be divided into four main categories:
  • Metals
  • Energy carriers
  • Livestock
  • Agriculture

About Commodities

The most actively traded commodities differ depending on how the markets work. For example, a highly volatile oil market may attract more price speculators. This increases both volume and open interest:
  • Volume refers to the total number of contracts traded.
  • Open Interest is the total number of opened long and short positions in the market.
High volume products are often the most popular to invest in. Low volume commodity markets may be subject to higher volatility or even sharp price fluctuations.
