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 21.82 /21.90, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of USD 21.82

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 4360.00, your broker would have issued a margin call and will close all your trades if the equity falls at 50% of 4360.

If the price
of XTIUSD
To You could Gain or Lose
for a Long Position
Resulting in a Return
of the Initial Margin
Rises by 10% 23.98/24.05 USD 4350 299.33%
Rises by 5% 22.89/22.96 USD 2180 199.22%
Declines by 10% 19.62/18.68 -USD 4360 -100.50%
Declines by 5% 20.70/20.77 -USD 2200 -0.10%
