Introduction To The Commodities Market
The Commodities Market is where global raw materials, currencies and other instruments are bought and sold mainly for future delivery. It is built on pure leverage.
Many traders love, and some are even addicted to this leverage because of the potential for gargantuan profits quickly. However, where there are humongous profits to be made, the potential for severe loses and heart aches exist.
If we can use a metaphor to describe the stock market as the fast lane on a busy highway, then the commodities market is the Indy-500 Racetrack.
It behooves one, therefore, to arm oneself with sufficient knowledge before plunging into the Commodities Market.
Some Specifics Of Trading Commodities
Two other observations about the Commodities Market that are not helpful for the retail investor to make timely and informed decisions are:
- There is not enough transparency with some commodities
- There is not enough information on some commodities
Commodities ETFs provide both opportunity and cover in such cases.
A Little History Of The Genesis Of The Commodities Market
Believe it or not, the initial design of the Commodities Market was to add stability to business projections in agricultural commodities.
The Commodities Market has since grown to accommodate almost all raw materials, currencies and indexes worldwide. The products include Indexes as the S&P 500, commodities (e.g, metals, agriculture, energy, livestock, etc), bonds, currencies, and other asset classes .
Commodities ETFs have become effective trading vehicles for those who want to participate in these markets while sheltering under the cover of a mutual-fund-like protection without the limitations.
