What is commodities trading?
A commodity is any physical good that can be bought or sold on the commodities market. Commodities work in a similar way to other financial markets. The exchange value of commodities is often affected by changes in supply and demand of the goods being traded. Commodities can be traded in the physical market or as a derivative.
How commodity trading works
The first step of trading commodities is to decide what you want to trade. It is important to consider the properties of commodities, and what external factors may affect the commodity’s price. Commodities are often traded as financial derivatives. You buy if you think the price of the commodity will rise, and you sell if you think the price of the commodity will fall.
Our volatility chart provides a simplified overview of recent price activity for different commodities and currency pairs so you can take a more informed CFD trading position.
Pricing and liquidity providers
Our pricing engine aggregates live prices, in real time, from our liquidity providers and calculates a mid-point. A custom-built pricing algorithm automatically calculates the spread symmetrically around the mid-point for each tradable instrument on our trading platform. This mid-point fluctuates throughout the day as market prices change.
