What is Commodities Trading?

Commodities trading represents the buying and selling of set quantities of homogeneous, or near-homogeneous assets. Popular commodities include Brent Crude Oil, Gold and other precious metals and soft commodities such as coffee, cocoa, soya etc. Price movements in commodities are usually seen as bellwethers for the overall health of the industry that produces/consumes them.

Commodity prices can be impacted by factors such as adverse weather, seasonal availability, natural disasters and other non-market factors typically found in other financial instruments. Typically, commodities trading in commodities can be either speculative or for hedging purposes. Traders can trade commodity markets to express their outlook on certain industries or to hedge their trading portfolio.

Through careful analysis, CFD traders predict the potential direction of commodities prices and attempt to capture gains based on price fluctuations. The market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

An Example of Leveraged
CFD Commodities Trading

Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is the XTIUSD a commodity, also known as Crude Oil. Let us suppose that the XTIUSD is trading at:

You decide to buy 2,000 barrels of XTIUSD because you think that the XTIUSD price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 10%. This means that you need to deposit 10% of the total position value into your margin account.

Now, in the next hour, if the price moves to 83 / 83.10, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of USD 83

In this case, the price of crude oil moved in your favor. But, had the price declined instead, moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. If that loss reduced your free equity to less than USD 16400, your broker would have issued a margin call and will close all your trades if the equity falls at 50% of 16400.

Types of Commodities

Commodities are raw materials or agricultural outputs that appear naturally, and are used in the production of other goods. They are recognised as the building blocks of the global economy and play a significant role in financial markets.

There are two types of commodities

Hard commodities: Refers to natural resources that are mined or extracted

Soft commodities: Agricultural products or livestock

For the purposes of trading, Commodities are further classified into four main categories:

Metals: Includes precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium and copper

Energy: Crude oil and natural gas are the main energy products that are traded. Heating oil, gasoline and electricity are among others

Agriculture: Agricultural commodities are centred around staple crops and animals. Wheat, rice, corn, soybeans coffee are among the most common crops. The classification of animals includes livestock and meat such as live cattle, pork, and eggs.

Livestock and Meat: Eggs, Pork, Cattle and more

What Are the Most
Traded Commodities?

The most traded Commodities are those which have an established market of buyers and sellers. This translates to high levels of liquidity and lower trading costs - two of the main attractions when trading Commodities CFDs.

Gold: Of the precious metals, gold continues to lead the way. Throughout history, gold has been a valuable commodity. The gold standard was in operation for almost a century and central banks continue to hold gold reserves. It is easily transferable for cash and often used as part of a hedging trading strategy as it often trades opposite to the United States dollar (USD).

Other Metals: Silver, platinum and palladium are among the most traded commodities. As they are considered a safe-haven investment, there is a wide range of Trading Strategies Using Precious Metals.

Crude Oil: The widespread use of oil makes it one of the most in-demand commodities. Petrol and diesel are examples of refined oil which highlights its importance in all forms of transportation. Its value as a source of energy is the reason why oil prices are heavily scrutinised.

How to Trade

There are several ways to trade commodities such as precious metals and oil. As they are a physical product, investors have the option of purchasing precious metals such as gold, silver and palladium. One of the main hurdles of doing so is the cost associated with storing such a valuable product.

This is one of the reasons why commodity futures trading emerged. Through exchange-traded funds (ETFs), you are able to enter into an agreement to buy or sell shares of an underlying ETF at an agreed price prior to a specified date. Many large corporations use futures markets to hedge against market volatility.

FP Markets offer CFD trading in commodities where you do not own the underlying asset and enter into a contract which, unlike futures contracts, do not have a specified end date. Trading Gold CFDs allows you to hedge against high risk market conditions using your margin trading account. Similarly, gold is also traded against major currencies in Συναλλαγές Forex.
