What are Commodities?
Considered as any physical good within a market or business, commodities are divided into 2 different categories, soft and hard:
- Soft commodities are goods that are purely grown and produced, rather than excavated, and extremely depended to climate conditions that have great impact in agricultural products, like Corn, Wheat, Coffee and Sugar.
- On the other hand, Hard commodities are natural elements, which are either extracted or mined. For instance, Natural Gas, Crude Oil, precious metals like Silver and Gold, and plenty other energy products. Trading this part of commodities allows traders to speculate on the spot price, since energy contracts are typically traded against the US Dollar.
