Trading is the oldest
form of trading and how it all began. A commodity
is any Product,
Item, or Raw Material that has value and can be traded. Once upon a
time it would have been an animal skin to keep warm, or perhaps a shiny
bauble that you fancied. It is still exactly the same except, nowadays
we have "Crude oil" and "Futures" etc.
are separated into several different categories:
Silver, Copper, etc
oil, Natural Gas, Heating oil, etc
Coffee, Cocoa, etc
Soya-bean’s, Wheat, etc
cattle, live cattle, lean hogs, etc
- Bonds, Futures, Options, etc.
are traded in commodities exchanges such as London Metals Exchange
(LME), New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and Chicago Board of Trade
Now, most investors cant actually take delivery of these commodities.
You cant simply dump a delivery of Natural Gas into a shed and sit back
price goes up a bit, and may-be you do have a yard big enough
to keep a
couple of dozen Lean Hogs in, but would you want to? Fortunately
Commodity trading is slightly differently to stock trading.
How to trade
trading is done by trading Futures or Options and we will explain how
to trade futures options in that section of this website. Another way
to trade commodities is by investing in stocks that are directly
associated with that commodity.
if you thought Gold was going to rise in value, you could
consider buying a Gold mining company whose share price may benefit
from increased profits.
You can also
invest directly int an ETC that tracks the commodity you
are interested in or invest through ETFs that hold a basket
of related stocks from that particular sector.
Why buy Commodities
can sometimes be a better
investment if stock markets are in decline. If share prices are
tumbling, investors may seek a safe haven in
commodities under the
premise that people will always have to eat, so Rice or Wheat may
currently give a better potential return.
It might be a particularly severe winter causing energy prices to rise
through increased demand, or a bad summer so the crop yields are poor
and demand outweighs supply causing the price to rise.
Prudent investors may want to add diversity to their portfolio by means
of commodity trading to help protect themselves from the risk of only
holding stocks in case the market crashes.
Commodity Trading - Risks
a number of reasons, Spreads for most commodities are much wider than
with popular stocks therefore you need prices need to rise more before
you break even, never mind make a profit, so commodity day trading is
much tougher for the small investor.
As with all investments, commodity prices can be very
volatile, prices may go down as well as up. Commodity prices can be
just as volatile as Stocks and move substantially against you in a very
short space of time.
