Commodities are the lifeblood of our global economy and commodities trading is one of the world’s oldest trading forms, existing before currency, bonds and stocks.
Commonly tradable commodities are categorised into one of four groups – energy (including crude oil), metals (such as gold, silver and copper), agricultural (including coffee, wheat, sugar and cocoa) and finally livestock and meat (including cattle).
Commodities trading is ideal for those who prefer to analyse supply and demand across the world, and how these affect commodities prices, in response to economic and political events.
Trade various commodity markets, including metals, energies and agriculture, with one account.
Commodities markets are among the most volatile markets available to traders. Agricultural markets in particular are very active.
Trading with leverage means that not as much capital is needed to trade. This gives commodities traders the opportunity to increase position size, amplifying potential gains and losses.
