fAQ ON COMMODITY TRADING

What is the definition of commodity trading?

Commodity trading is another class of assets just like stocks and bonds. However, they are different in the sense that they are natural products and raw materials such as corn, wheat, gold, oil, gas, and uranium. Furthermore, the same type of commodities can be interchanged if the quality is the same. For example, a company that manufactures chocolates can buy cocoa produced in Ghana, as well as in Cameroon, and still can produce the same quality chocolates.

How does the commodities market move?

Precious metals tend to perform well when expectations for future inflation are increasing, the major currencies are falling, geopolitical unrest is rising, or there are widespread concerns about the stability of the financial system. On the other hand, precious metals tend to perform poorly when expectations for future inflation are decreasing, the major currencies are rising, geopolitical unrest is falling, or concerns about financial system stability are declining.

What differentiates products vs. commodities?

Both are traded in the commodity markets, but they differ in a few ways, as discussed below.

Commodities are interchangeable, and every kind is the same regardless of their source. It means that crude oil from one producer is the same crude oil from another producer and the goods can be combined without affecting the quality of the commodity.

Commodity prices are the same for all producers, who are also called price takers. They do not control or influence the prices as they depend on supply and demand. It means that prices can just drop or rise anytime.

Differentiated products, on the other hand, are unique products or those that are not like the generic version of the products. For example, regular gasoline is priced in the same way across all oil companies. However, if they produce high-octane gasoline and call it a different name, the product becomes better than what the competitors are selling.
