You can speculate on the future price of a physical good such as gold, oil or cotton by trading on commodities. Commodity trading, Unlike the forex market, takes place on structured exchanges where a relatively small number of buyers and sellers come together to agree prices.
Whether spread betting or trading on commodity CFDs, you are trading on the underlying market price using a derivative product based on leverage – you can trade on larger positions than the ones you could if you were to purchase the commodity outright. Leverage magnifies profits and losses.
Derivatives allow you to trade on the price without ever take delivery of the commodity, making it possible for just about anyone to trade on commodities providing they have access to a phone or computer.
At MarketsTrades you can trade on commodity futures and commodities with no expiry points.
