What is commodities trading?
Commodities trading is a popular way to speculate on the financial markets. The origins of commodities trading can be traced back to Asia hundreds of years ago. Commodities are mostly traded in two forms – cash and forward – with the settlement (or delivery) dates being the main difference between the two. Cash settled commodities have a settlement date that is usually in the near future, while forward commodities usually settle further in the future and therefore, tend to have wider spreads.
