How to Begin Commodity Trading?

Commodities are vital elements in the economic market, as they are used to make refined products with their own essential value. The traders purchase and sell commodities like agricultural products, industrial metals, forest products, energy, and other products that are traded in the commodity market.

It is essential for investors to know that commodity trading is not like other trading. In this, investors need to buy and sell actual commodities like crude oil, food grain, or gold and make a profit from it. 

Different Types of Commodities

There are basically two types of commodities in the commodity market: soft and hard commodities. The hard commodities are used as raw materials for other products and services. The soft commodities are for instant usage or consumption. Examples of hard commodities are metals and natural minerals. Soft commodities include agricultural goods like pulses and wheat. Before you start investing in commodity stocks, it is essential to know about the kinds of commodities and their classification. 

The Commodities Can Be Broadly Classified Into the Following Categories:

  • Natural Energy- Brent crude, crude oil, and other renewable energy. 

  • Valuable Metal- Gold, silver, platinum, and other precious metal. 

  • Minerals and metal- soda ash, aluminum, and others. 

  • Agricultural goods- Rice, wheat, pulses, cotton, and others. 

  • Services- Oil services, mining services, energy services, etc.

What Are Future Contracts?

Although commodities trading involves physical trading, it takes place in the form of future contracts. The future contracts ensure that a particular commodity will be purchased and sold at a set price and date. The commodity futures market traders bet on the price movement of commodities.

If the price shows an upward movement, the trader buys the futures; if the price shows a downward movement, the futures are sold. Go long and go short is the term used to describe this. So, if you are thinking to open commodity trading account, get in touch with Aaditya Wealthon today.
