Fundamentals of Commodity Market
Physical commodities underpin the global economy. They are traded in vast quantities across the globe. We depend on them for the basics of everyday life – for the electricity we use, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the homes we live in and the transport
we rely on. These are the fundamental raw materials from which we build and power our cities, run our transport systems and feed ourselves – the basic stuff of life. But ask the average person what they think of when they hear the word ‘commodity’ and they are more likely to talk about financial markets, Wall Street and speculation.
While it is true that commodity markets can be volatile, and a certain breed of financial trader will always be attracted by that, this
conception is a world away from the complex, intensely practical business of getting resources out of the ground, moving them
across the globe and turning them into the raw materials we use every day. Whether or not you’re planning to get involved in commodity trading, this eBook presents lots of useful information that might come in handy for any investor.
