The concept of commodity trading
Commodity exchange is a platform where you can make a deal by means of buying and selling certain products. In most cases, the object of sale in such a market is not a really existing product, but a futures contract. On the commodities market the parties can enclose fixed-term contracts. Derivatives can be prearranged and predicted.
The work on the commodity exchange takes place according to two main patterns. You can perform operations with the help of an intermediary or be listed on the exchange as a full-fledged participant. For a rookie investor, the first option is more suitable.
