Understanding the Basics
A commodity market is a market that trades in non-manufactured goods. There are two types of commodities: soft and hard. Soft commodities include agricultural products like wheat, coffee, cocoa, fruit, sugar. Hard commodities include mined resources such as gold or oil. Commodities are traded on commodity exchanges, for instance the London Metal Exchange. On these exchanges standard agreements are concluded, so that the goods can be traded without visual inspection.
Simple supply and demand principles work well to explain how commodity markets operate. A low supply drives the demand for a commodity up, causing a rise in price. If you are interested in getting more commodity information, many commodity exchanges, trade organizations, and government agencies provide important information themselves, often available for free. In the energy business, the API and EIA are great sources of data. In grains, soft commodities, and the animal meat (livestock) markets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s reports are extremely helpful.
