Сommodities are one of the oldest investment products. They have unique features which make them both an independent tool and a part of traditional portfolios. Being included in the portfolio commodities effectively reduce investment risks.

Commodities differ greatly from traditional assets, such as stocks, bonds, and money market instruments. One of the main differences is the global nature of commodity markets, where prices are subject to global fluctuations in supply and demand.

 

Due to the development of modern financial technologies commodities have become available to ordinary investors via futures contracts, which are considered to be the best way to get income from commodity price fluctuations. Such contracts have a number of advantages:

  • High liquidity;
  • Transparent pricing;
  • Security of settlements;
  • Low expenses;
  • The purchase of the contract does not require payment of its full cost, the Initial margin varies from 6 to 15% of the contract value.
