What are commodities?

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.
