The essentials of commodities trading

Keen to understand more about commodities? Here’s an overview to help elucidate the world’s oldest form of trading.

What is commodities trading?

Commodities trading is the buying and selling of raw materials or primary agricultural products. There are hard commodities, which are generally mined natural resources like gold or oil, and soft commodities, which are livestock or agricultural goods.

Commodities trading predates all other forms of trading, as burgeoning civilisations would barter for food and supplies. In modern times, the physical commodities market is hugely dependent on futures prices, enabling producers (such as farmers) to secure a price from buyers in advance.

However, the sophisticated network of commodities exchanges that exists today enables speculative traders to access the price movements of these assets in the short term.

Why trade commodities?

Trading on commodities gives you exposure to the prices of oil, gas, metals and more, without ever having to take physical delivery of the asset or worry about storing them. Unlike futures contracts, CFDs do not have a specified expiry date, giving you flexibility on when you close your position.

Many investors view commodities as a potential hedge against inflation, as their prices are not highly correlated with other assets. Gold in particular has historically been considered a safe haven, as it tends to retain its value during times of economic uncertainty.

Trading CFDs on commodities also enables you to use leverage to amplify your exposure. This can magnify your profits but also your losses, as both will be based on the full value of the position.

I have been usingCapital.comm platform for a year now. I did have some issues with using the platform in the earlier days but I received excellent support from Capital.com guiding me in the process of learning about the platform and put me on track. I am very happy with this platform and find it very easy to use for my trading needs. Capital.com also arranged a series of trading webinars last summer, which I attended and benefited from.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
