Commodity Market
June 07 , 2012

Commodity markets are markets for a product that is perfectly interchangeable with any other of the same type and class; any supplier's product is interchangeable with any other's and buyers do not care who they buy from. These commodities are traded on regulated commodities exchanges, in which they are bought and sold in standardized contracts.

Important commodities include:

  • crude oil
  • metals
  • certain agricultural products.

Non-perishable commodities such as metals are called hard commodities. Perishable commodities such as agricultural commodities are called soft commodities.

There are numerous ways to invest in commodities. An investor can purchase stock in corporations whose business relies on commodities prices, or purchase mutual funds, index funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that have a focus on commodities-related companies. The most direct way of investing in commodities is by buying into a futures contract.
