Commodities



Trading with commodities has been known to people from the times immemorial when only barter trade was used and no currencies existed yet.

Commodity trading still exists today, but on a much larger scale and takes place on commodity markets.

Commodity is a basic good used in trading. When trading
in commodities on capital markets, the quality and price of each product unit is accurately determined. In exchanges, commodities are traded through commodity contracts (futures).

How it works

Trading with commodities is a common business for large corporations, states and other major institutions, however this is an interesting opportunity for appreciation also for individual investors.

Trading is not done directly with physical commodities, but rather with their derivatives, the base assets of which are certain commodities. These are not term transactions – i.e. what we buy today will have a fixed date assigned when the deal will be paid for. From the future price we determine whether we make a profit or loss. Many investors are attracted to this market due to the fact that in the first phase they pay only the so called margin, i.e. only a small portion of the commodity’s real value.


How to invest

Simply create a trading account, deposit your funds there, sign on to the application, and you are ready to start.

With an FGMarkets account, available to you is a broad range
of commodities including: precious metals, agricultural products
and many other.

When trading in commodities, we recommend that you make use of the so called diversifications, which will make your investment safer.
