This article features factors that affect commodity prices - just what does cause the price of wheat gold and oil to fluctuate? Find out by clicking the above link to see all of the factors that change commodity prices. If you want to trade on the value of commodities, you can do so in several different ways. There are spot and future markets, but most traders will use a more convenient tool, such as spreadbetting, in order to play on the volatility of commodities. There are many companies that are heavily dependent on particular commodities. For instance, petrol refineries need crude oil, and this price typically changes. So you can expect the price of crude oil to have an impact on the share price of companies like Royal Dutch Shell and BP. Even if you do not trade commodities, this is a reason you may be interested in what causes commodity prices to change. And put simply, the old standby of the economist, supply and demand, govern all the fluctuations in pricing of commodities. This is not to say that supply and demand are equally important for all types of commodities. For instance, some are more dependent on supply, whereas others have a dependency on a varying demand. Consider agricultural products. These include products like wheat and corn. You're probably not going to see a big change in demand for these products, so much as you are going to see large changes in supply. These would result from crop failures and disease, weather conditions, etc. On the other hand, the supply of metals such as gold and platinum is fairly steady at any particular time. A more powerful factor in the pricing of these is how much demand there may be, and demand changes result from increasing industrialization in Third World countries, making these metals more desirable to the population, and from societal aspects such as inflation that tend to change the attitude towards precious metals. It is worth noting that the price of commodities in certain groups tends to move up and down in tandem. In the precious metals, gold, silver, platinum, and palladium would all tend to go up and down together in value. It is unlikely that you would see the price of gold fall and the price of palladium soar at the same time. Similarly, if you consider grains such as oats, corn, and wheat, these prices are likely to move in concert. To some extent, each can be a substitute for another. If the price of oats goes up, then farmers may buy more corn to feed their livestock, and this increase in demand for corn makes that price rise too. Although we are talking about commodities, you can also see this in effect in some stocks and shares. As an example, you would usually see the shares of banks such as RBS and Barclays going up and down together, unless there is a particular scandal or revelation about one of them. It is because of this that many traders limit the amount of exposure in any particular market sector. Diversifying by buying into different companies does not give diversfication if all the companies' shares rise and fall together.

In this first of a series of videos from Socialist Appeal's recent "Capital in Day" event - held to celebrate the 150th anniversary of volume one of Karl Marx's Capital - James Kilby discusses the concept of the commodity. Capitalism is a system in which the production and exchange of commodities is generalised and universal. And it is the idea of the commodity that Marx began his analysis in Capital with, going on to explain where value comes from and why some commodities are more valuable than others. James provides an overview of Chapter 1 of Das Kapital, delving into the Labour Theory of Value, and providing the key concepts needed to understand the later sections of Marx's masterpiece.

http://profitabletradingtips.com/trading-investing/commodities-trading Commodities Trading By www.ProfitableTradingTips.com As currencies fall in value commodities appear to rise. In fact, commodities such as gold, oil, and agriculture products simply retain their value in the face of inflation and currency devaluation. Those engaged in commodities trading know that fact. Traders engaged in commodities trading also know that supply and demand, the fundamentals, are basic to commodity prices. Those who wish to profit from commodities trading learn technical analysis. This is the analysis of past price movement with the purpose of predicting future price movement. One trades commodities in a futures market. Traders enter into contracts to buy or sell specified quantities of a given commodity on a specified future date. To profit from commodities trading one needs a firm grasp of the fundamentals that determine pricing and a clear sense of how the market reacts to changes in information. Commodity Futures Futures are standardized contracts between two parties to buy or sell a specific, standardized, amount of virtually anything. The price is agreed upon at the time of the contract and holds until the date of delivery. Most futures traders do not actually sell or buy commodities as they simply exit the contract by making the opposite trade prior to the delivery date. Although the price set in the futures contract for corn, beef, oil, gold, or other commodities is set the value of the contract varies and that is where the profit lies in commodities trading. In today's world online commodities trading is common. Traders follow the news pertinent to the value of gold, cattle, or wheat. They follow pricing patterns in order to understand evolving market sentiment. Depending on the perceived changes in supply and demand the value of a commodity futures contract will rise or fall. In commodities trading one can buy or sell a contract for crude oil that is not deliverable for a decade but still make profits today. The trader simply seeks to enter and exit the trade at the most profitable times. Many traders use options in commodity trading. In doing so, they limit their risk and often leverage their investment capital. Futures Markets The following is a list of United States Futures exchanges: CBOE Futures Exchange (CFE) Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) Chicago Climate Exchange (CCE) ELX Futures (Electronic Liquidity Exchange) ICE Futures U.S. Kansas City Board of Trade (KCBT) Minneapolis Grain Exchange (MGEX) Nadex (formerly HedgeStreet) NASDAQ OMX Futures Exchange (NFX) New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and (COMEX) NYSE Liffe US OneChicago, LLC (Single-stock futures (SSF's) and Futures on ETFs) The CME group owns CME, CBOT, NYMEX, and COMEX. Predicting the Future Will there be a drought in Eurasia, Brazil, or North America? These are the world bread baskets for wheat, corn, and soybeans. Will overly strong monsoon rains or a persistent drought affect the rice harvests in Southern Asia? Commodities trading in these foodstuffs requires a clear sense of what will affect supply and demand. Gold goes up when currencies falter or war threatens and oil goes up when there is unrest in the Middle East or a hurricane approaching the Gulf of Mexico. In commodities trading, traders keep an eye on the facts and the other eye on how the market is reacting. Timing the market as a day trader in commodities trading is also important, especially important news breaks.

For a layman, commodity market refers to the market where raw and primary products are bought and sold. But for an investor, it means a large plethora of opportunities and much more. To get a clearer insight of the Commodity Markets in India, please click on this part of Aditya Trading Solutions (ATS) Investor Education Series. What are commodities? Commodities are easy to understand and commodity markets are global in nature, hence less risk for manipulation. Ask anyone and he/she will probably say "oil, copper, Gold, silver". The person is right in saying so, but that doesn't explain how a commodity becomes a commodity. Fungibility: It is the key to understand commodities. Fungibility lets you trade huge quantities of all the so-called commodities at one price. An example of fungibility is Gold; Gold in India is same as Gold in China or US, as long as it has the same purity. So, fungibility simplifies the commodity markets. There is no differentiation between products—your one barrel of crude oil is same as someone else's one barrel of crude oil. No brands, no labels. Price move in direct response to changes in expected supply and expected demand. Types of Commodities— Segment Wise (MCX & NCDEX) Metals • Gold • Silver • Steel • Copper • Zinc • Nickel • Lead & Aluminium Oilseed Complex • Crude Palm Oil • Mustard Seed • Castor Seed Energy • Brent Crude • Sweet Crude Oil • Furnace Oil • Cotton • Sugar • Guy Agri • Pepper • Guar Seed • Soy Bean • Jeera • Chilli • Turmeric Why Investing in Commodities? Adding commodities exposure will increase your returns while lowering your risk. Commodities as asset class, helps achieve portfolio diversification. When stocks and bonds head south, commodities tend to head north. If in 2008, your entire portfolio was in stocks, you would have hit the wall. But a look at commodities will explain how diversification helps: While stocks fell over 30 per cent, commodities rose by over 30 per cent. So, if you had both in portfolio, you would have just saved would wealth. Of course there are no free lunches. Commodities are risky and their value fluctuates widely overtime. But when built into a solid asset allocation plan, they can, and have, boosted risk-adjusted returns. Commodity Exchanges in India Commodity Exchange: It's an association that organizes trading in commodities In India, at present, there are 3 national level commodities exchanges namely National Multi-Commodity Exchange of India (NMCE), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange Ltd (NCDEX) and Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (MU) and 21 regional exchanges allowed for derivatives trading of agricultural commodities Role of Commodity Exchanges • Platform for hedging and speculation • Standardization of futures • Facilitation of real price discovery • Ensue mg fair play Track of business transacted • Fixing rules for uachng • Dissemination of information Type of Commodity Markets... Spot • Spot markets for commodities are popular only for physical exchange of goods from one party to another for cash, where they may be of use for the buyer • issues in this market are the lack of clarity of contract size of commodities, for settlement, and the period involved, which may vary from two days to 45 days Futures • The most popular form of trading in commodity markets is carried out in the futures market, where the contract size of every lot of commodity is pre-determined, and the date of expiry of options and futures is also earmarked in advance • Futures trading performs two important functions, namely, price discovery and price risk management with reference to the given commodity The final step... Broker: You will need a broker to trade on the exchange. Most of the brokers today offer online trading platform too. Exchanges can provide you the list of their respective members and then you can choose your own broker. Min. Investment: One can start with as low as Rs 5,000. One just needs the money for margins payable upfront to exchanges through brokers which range from 5-10 per cent of the value of the commodity contract.

Jonathan Goldberg is the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of BBL Commodities LP, an investment manager which employs a fundamental, discretionary relative value strategy focused on the petroleum complex and natural gas. Jon has spent his entire career analyzing and trading in the oil and gas commodities markets, beginning at J. Aron, the commodities division of Goldman Sachs from 2003 to 2010. His first role was in working with Goldman's refining and end-user clients on structured hedging transactions before taking over a proprietary trading role. Mr. Goldberg then worked as a partner in Glencore's oil department from 2010 through 2013, where he was responsible for helping to build the firm's US oil derivatives business. Mr. Goldberg managed a proprietary book and leveraged his financial experience as well as his understanding of the physical oil markets, and subsequently launched BBL in August of 2013, bringing several members of his Glencore team along with him. In this Opalesque.TV interview, Mr. Goldberg discusses how his relative value commodity approach differs from many other hedge fund peers in the sector, and how the investment process more appropriately reflects the actions taken within an oil trading house. The strategy is versatile in its application and expression and is designed to operate in different and changing market conditions. Trade expressions are predominantly designed through futures based spreads, with a focus on the middle part of the futures curve. Whilst the strategy may take directional exposure, it typically has no directional bias and provides diversity by being comprised of different trades through the petroleum complex, which at times may be independently bullish or bearish in nature. The foundation of the investment process is the fundamental analysis of micro supply and demand balances in global oil and micro oil market, seeking to identify and capitalize on the potentially substantial mispricing that exists in the market, due to seasonal trends, poor understanding of the dynamics of the forward curve and incomplete supply and demand analysis by market participants. Jon describes what makes the market environment in 2017 flush with opportunity sets for relative value oil trading, particularly due to OPEC’s crude oil production cuts and US supply growth. Relative value oil traders can capitalize on such movements, trading the front of the curve versus the back of the curve. Learn more about: Why OPEC’s production cuts combined with US production trough drives relative value trade opportunities The impact of upcoming spec changes coming to the US market, and why regulatory changes will increase global distillate demand The importance of a diversified set of positions into different themes Natural gas market sell-offs in 2017 due to historically warm weather Natural gas production is actually declining on a year-on-year basis in both 2016 and 2017 Why gas markets may see very large inventory declines going through the summer and into the winter of 2018, driving higher prices for the forward curve How a strategy based on relative value is able to operate in different and changing market conditions Importance of diversity in positions

A commodity is a raw product. Examples of commodities include grains, like corn, wheat and soybeans; livestock like cattle and hogs; metals like gold and silver, and energy sources like crude oil and natural gas. This raw product is typically sold, and then processed and/or packaged in some way to ultimately be sold by a retailer to a consumer. To make it easier to buy and sell these raw goods, the quality of the commodity must be uniform from all producers. So all the bushels of corn, all the bales of cotton, and all the barrels of crude oil are essentially the same, regardless of who produced them. A commodity market is a place where you can buy, sell, or trade these raw products.

The 6th paragraph of Section 8 of Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution provides that the U.S. Congress shall have the power to "coin money" and to "regulate the value" of domestic and foreign coins. Congress exercised those powers when it enacted the Coinage Act of 1792. That Act provided for the minting of the first U.S. dollar and it declared that the U.S. dollar shall have "the value of a Spanish milled dollar as the same is now current". The table to the right shows the equivalent amount of goods that, in a particular year, could be purchased with $1. The table shows that from 1774 through 2012 the U.S. dollar has lost about 97.0% of its buying power. The decline in the value of the U.S. dollar corresponds to price inflation, which is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. A consumer price index (CPI) is a measure estimating the average price of consumer goods and services purchased by households. The United States Consumer Price Index, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is a measure estimating the average price of consumer goods and services in the United States. It reflects inflation as experienced by consumers in their day-to-day living expenses. A graph showing the U.S. CPI relative to 1982–1984 and the annual year-over-year change in CPI is shown at right. The value of the U.S. dollar declined significantly during wartime, especially during the American Civil War, World War I, and World War II. The Federal Reserve, which was established in 1913, was designed to furnish an "elastic" currency subject to "substantial changes of quantity over short periods", which differed significantly from previous forms of high-powered money such as gold, national bank notes, and silver coins. Over the very long run, the prior gold standard kept prices stable—for instance, the price level and the value of the U.S. dollar in 1914 was not very different from the price level in the 1880s. The Federal Reserve initially succeeded in maintaining the value of the U.S. dollar and price stability, reversing the inflation caused by the First World War and stabilizing the value of the dollar during the 1920s, before presiding over a 30% deflation in U.S. prices in the 1930s. Under the Bretton Woods system established after World War II, the value of gold was fixed to $35 per ounce, and the value of the U.S. dollar was thus anchored to the value of gold. Rising government spending in the 1960s, however, led to doubts about the ability of the United States to maintain this convertibility, gold stocks dwindled as banks and international investors began to convert dollars to gold, and as a result the value of the dollar began to decline. Facing an emerging currency crisis and the imminent danger that the United States would no longer be able to redeem dollars for gold, gold convertibility was finally terminated in 1971 by President Nixon, resulting in the "Nixon shock". The value of the U.S. dollar was therefore no longer anchored to gold, and it fell upon the Federal Reserve to maintain the value of the U.S. currency. The Federal Reserve, however, continued to increase the money supply, resulting in stagflation and a rapidly declining value of the U.S. dollar in the 1970s. This was largely due to the prevailing economic view at the time that inflation and real economic growth were linked (the Phillips curve), and so inflation was regarded as relatively benign. Between 1965 and 1981, the U.S. dollar lost two thirds of its value. In 1979, President Carter appointed Paul Volcker Chairman of the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve tightened the money supply and inflation was substantially lower in the 1980s, and hence the value of the U.S. dollar stabilized. Over the thirty-year period from 1981 to 2009, the U.S. dollar lost over half its value. This is because the Federal Reserve has targeted not zero inflation, but a low, stable rate of inflation—between 1987 and 1997, the rate of inflation was approximately 3.5%, and between 1997 and 2007 it was approximately 2%. The so-called "Great Moderation" of economic conditions since the 1970s is credited to monetary policy targeting price stability. There is ongoing debate about whether central banks should target zero inflation (which would mean a constant value for the U.S. dollar over time) or low, stable inflation (which would mean a continuously but slowly declining value of the dollar over time, as is the case now). Although some economists are in favor of a zero inflation policy and therefore a constant value for the U.S. dollar, others contend that such a policy limits the ability of the central bank to control interest rates and stimulate the economy when needed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_dollar#Value

azValor is known –amongst many other things– for its decisive bet on commodities, especially in recent times. What criteria underlie this choice? Why do commodities figure prominently in azValor’s investment portfolio? Fernando Bernad, Deputy Chief Investment Officer at azValor, speaks about it. "As you know, we believe that the key to making good investments is buying low. And we are actually finding value in this market segment; something other segments have precious little of. With western stock exchanges in historic highs, we are having a hard time finding investment ideas –although they exist– but it is in the commodities segment where they are most predominant. I believe it is crucial to dwell on the glaring performance discrepancy of the commodities sector vis-à-vis the indices and stock markets in general. It should be noted that since the record highs of 2011, commodities have sunk by almost 40% in dollars. Since then, however, the American Stock Exchange has gone up by 130% before dividends. The European Stock Exchange, over 80%. In other words, while there have been historically sharp and steady rises in stock markets since 2011, commodities have done nothing but drop. So the discrepancy is really striking. In the oil and gas sector it is slightly less. Highs were reached in 2014, but there were similarly sharp falls since then and bullish stock markets since 2014. So I would say this is the first important starting point. As you known, it is a sector regarded as complicated by the market in general, which depends on a non-controllable variable that is highly volatile in the short-term, it is difficult to value, some people are afraid of volatility… but we do a thorough analysis of the cost structure of the industries of the different commodities and calculate normalised prices to do our valuations. It is an analysis that takes into account a large amount of data. It is very thorough… And it can be perfectly done with a long-term vision. In the end, it is the method we use to reach a reasonable price of the commodity, a normalised price that allows us to do the valuations of these companies which are actually rather volatile in the short-term. Right now our portfolio is concentrated in a few commodities, mainly copper, uranium, nickel, oil and gas, and then gold and silver, which have slightly different dynamics but are basically also subject to the same fundamentals. What we see in these commodities is that there has hardly been any investment for almost 6 years now. I am referring to investment in new mines, new deposits. However, we believe that the growing demand is unstoppable. Consequently, we are beginning to see a situation –that will continue in the future– where there is hardly any new production and demand continues at its own pace. We must also take into account that in the commodities and oil and gas segments, etc., these new mines are necessary not only to cater to the growing demand but also to replace deposits that are gradually disappearing. Approximately between 5-7% of annual world production comes from withered mines. This must also be replaced by new mines. And for these new mines to start operating, commodities need to provide enough incentives to invest in them. This brings me back to the analysis I mentioned earlier of normalising the price of commodities. In particular, their dynamics of supply and demand are the most attractive in our view. I believe there is a somewhat installed narrative in a significant part of investors and, in general, of people investing in markets, whereby China has gone through a supercycle during the last 10 years that is unsustainable. One thing is certain: narratives are very easy. It is easy to fall into the newspaper headline, the shortcut, the sensationalist slogan, but then data must be analysed."

Silver has the best potential for growth of all the metals, according to Andrew Hecht, author of the Hecht Commodities Report. Hecht noted that the gold-silver ratio is at the highest level since 1993, and while the white metal has been a laggard to its gold counterpart lately, it has the potential to see sudden moves. “Silver is very disappointing, but silver is one of those metals that just likes to sit there and do nothing and then all of a sudden move. I need to see silver get above $15.07 an ounce on a technical basis to validate the recent move in gold, and it just hasn’t wanted to do that,” Hecht told Kitco News. Hecht said that silver’s current price is positioned to stage a rally but like all precious metals, investment demand is needed to drive the path of least resistance of price. “I would buy silver on a tight stop because on a percentage basis it’s got the biggest chance to move significantly higher if these metals are going to go higher, and the stop level probably for silver is below the $14.40 level,” he said. _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

While some market watchers have been crying deflation, commodity prices have been creeping higher. Mark Newton, Chief Market Technician at Greywolf Equities believes the commodity market may have more value than stocks now. Gold has already moved, but other metals like palladium and uranium are looking good. Newton also pointed to many soft commodities that have made moves like coffee and bacon. Grains like wheat have also seen increases due to the Ukraine crisis.

http://profitabletradingtips.com/trading-investing/volatile-commodities-trading Volatile Commodities Trading By www.ProfitableTradingTips.com Today's volatile commodities trading can lead to profits if traders follow fundamentals and trade with trading cues such as Candlestick analysis signals. Gold futures were going up and now they are going down. Industrial commodities are in retreat as global recession threatens again. The dollar is strengthening as Forex investors seek safe haven in the US dollar which in turn makes every dollar denominated commodity cheaper. Stocks have fallen as well as traders concern themselves with the prospect of Europe not really fixing its debt dilemma and leading the world back into negative growth. Amid all of this mess traders will do well to remind themselves that volatile commodities trading can be profitable commodity trading. The value of trading commodities, stocks, options, futures, and foreign currencies as opposed to long term buy and hold investing is that there is profit to be made when equities go down as well as when they go up in price. Reading the Signs As the world anticipates another dip to the recession stock prices are down, the US Dollar is rising, and volatile commodities trading is trending to the down side. How in commodities trading can one profit in this environment? Is it time to sit on the sidelines, trade commodity futures options, only sell commodities? All might be possibilities but the most important part of trading commodities in today's environment is to have a clear view of market sentiment. Using Candlestick charts, traders have successfully traded commodities going back centuries to when there were Samurai in Japan. Rice traders recognized price patterns and learned that they could buy or sell rice based upon recognizable Candlestick patterns. Today traders buy commodities futures or sell commodities futures based upon the same Candlestick pattern formations that traders have long used. Gold and silver futures are trading more like commodities these days than like safe havens for wealth. Both precious metals hit their highest levels a couple of years ago and have steadily fallen as the dollar has strengthened. The driving force behind the rise of these metals, especially gold, has been the belief that the dollar and Euro were headed for the abyss. As the dollar strengthened many traders have moved in, assessed the markets with the technical analysis insight provided by Candlestick charting and profited by selling gold or silver futures or selling short on gold exchange traded funds. Although volatile markets can be chaotic they can also be profitable. Successful traders can approach volatile commodities trading very objectively with statistically based Candlestick charting techniques. Volatile Oil Prices, or Not? As oil futures fall traders concern themselves with the unrest in the Middle East and the Ukraine as well as a stronger dollar. Fundamentals are always discounted by the market but in times of volatile commodities trading traders must rely more strongly on the unbiased assessment provided by Japanese Candlestick charting in successfully anticipating commodity price changes. Candlesticks help traders see new market trends early and anticipate market reversal before being caught in a market correction. As in the days of ancient Japan when rice traders profited by following Candlestick signals traders of today can use advanced technical trading to avoid being caught up in market psychology and objectively trade during periods of volatile commodities trading. http://youtu.be/zMFnRvzSgFc

Commodities are not investments. Gold is a bad investment, art is a bad or poor investment & bitcoin is a BAD investment. When you buy commodities on the exchange of any country (MCX COMMODITY TRADING INDIA), you are simply commodity trading / speculative trading / Gambling. The only way you can make a profit in commodities is if the next person is willing to pay you more than you paid for it. The commodity doesnt produce anything by itself unlike a business.

A commodity market is a market that trades in primary economic sector rather than manufactured products. Soft commodities are agricultural products such as wheat, coffee, cocoa and sugar. Hard commodities are mined, such as gold and oil. Investors access about 50 major commodity markets worldwide with purely financial transactions increasingly outnumbering physical trades in which goods are delivered. Futures contracts are the oldest way of investing in commodities. Futures are secured by physical assets. Commodity markets can include physical trading and derivatives trading using spot prices, forwards, futures, and options on futures. Farmers have used a simple form of derivative trading in the commodity market for centuries for price risk management. A financial derivative is a financial instrument whose value is derived from a commodity termed an underlier. Derivatives are either exchange-traded or over-the-counter (OTC). An increasing number of derivatives are traded via clearing houses some with Central Counterparty Clearing, which provide clearing and settlement services on a futures exchange, as well as off-exchange in the OTC market. Derivatives such as futures contracts, Swaps (1970s-), Exchange-traded Commodities (ETC) (2003-), forward contracts have become the primary trading instruments in commodity markets. Futures are traded on regulated commodities exchanges. Over-the-counter (OTC) contracts are "privately negotiated bilateral contracts entered into between the contracting parties directly".  Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) began to feature commodities in 2003. Gold ETFs are based on "electronic gold" that does not entail the ownership of physical bullion, with its added costs of insurance and storage in repositories such as the London bullion market. According to the World Gold Council, ETFs allow investors to be exposed to the gold market without the risk of price volatility associated with gold as a physical commodity. In the United States, the principal regulator of commodity and futures markets is the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The National Futures Association (NFA) was formed in 1976 and is the futures industry's self-regulatory organization. The NFA's first regulatory operations began in 1982 and fall under the Commodity Exchange Act of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Act. Dodd-Frank was enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. It called for "strong measures to limit speculation in agricultural commodities" calling upon the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to further limit positions and to regulate over-the-counter trades. Software for managing trading systems has been available for several decades in various configurations. This includes software as a service. So-called Energy Trading Risk Management (ETRM) includes software such as Triple Point Technology, Sol Arc, Open Link and Gibbon. One of the more popular soft commodity solutions is called Just Commodity, based in Singapore this application caters to a large number of palm oil, edible oil, sugar and wheat trading businesses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodity_market

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be a great way to invest in the stock market or commodities. They're cheap, simple and easily traded. However, a fair number of ETFs are riskier than people realise. If you're not up to speed on the different types of ETF, you could end up losing money unexpectedly. So in this video, we're going to explain how ETFs work and highlight the types of ETF that are especially risky.

What does COMMODITY MONEY mean? COMMODITY MONEY meaning - COMMODITY MONEY definition - COMMODITY MONEY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Commodity money is money whose value comes from a commodity of which it is made. Commodity money consists of objects that have value in themselves (intrinsic value) as well as value in their use as money. Example of commodities that have been used as mediums of exchange include gold, silver, copper, salt, peppercorns, tea, large stones (such as Rai stones), decorated belts, shells, alcohol, cigarettes, cannabis, silk, candy, nails, cocoa beans, cowries and barley. These items were sometimes used in a metric of perceived value in conjunction to one another, in various commodity valuation or price system economies. Commodity money is to be distinguished from representative money which is a certificate or token which can be exchanged for the underlying commodity, but only as the trade is good for that source and the product. A key feature of commodity money is that the value is directly perceived by the users of this money, who recognize the utility or beauty of the tokens as they would recognize the goods themselves. That is, the effect of holding a token for a barrel of oil must be the same economically as actually having the barrel at hand. This thinking guides the modern commodity markets, although they use a sophisticated range of financial instruments that are more than one-to-one representations of units of a given type of commodity. Since payment by commodity generally provides a useful good, commodity money is similar to barter, but is distinguishable from it in having a single recognized unit of exchange. (Radford 1945) described the establishment of commodity money in P.O.W camps. People left their surplus clothing, toilet requisites and food there until they were sold at a fixed price in cigarettes. Only sales in cigarettes were accepted – there was no barter Of food, the shop carried small stocks for convenience; the capital was provided by a loan from the bulk store of Red Cross cigarettes and repaid by a small commission taken on the first transactions. Thus the cigarette attained its fullest currency status, and the market was almost completely unified. Radford documented the way that this 'cigarette currency' was subject to Gresham's law, inflation, and especially deflation. In another example, in US prisons, after smoking was banned circa 2003, commodity money has switched in many places to cans or foil pouches of mackerel fish fillets, which have a fairly standard cost and are easy to store. These may be exchanged for many services in prisons where personal possession of currency is prohibited. In situations where the commodity is metal, typically gold or silver, a government mint will often coin money by placing a mark on the metal that serves as a guarantee of the weight and purity of the metal. In doing so, the government will often impose a fee which is known as seigniorage. The role of a mint and of coin differs between commodity money and fiat money. In situations where there is commodity money, the coin retains its value if it is melted and physically altered, while in a fiat money it does not. Usually in a fiat money the value drops if the coin is converted to metal, but in a few cases the value of metals in fiat moneys have been allowed to rise to values larger than the face value of the coin. In India, for example fiat Rupees disappeared from the market after 2007 when their content of stainless steel became larger than the fiat or face value of the coins. In the US, the metal in pennies (97.5% zinc since 1982, 95% copper in 1982 and before) and nickels (75% copper, 25% nickel) has a value close to, and sometimes exceeding, the fiat face value of the coin. Although some commodity money (barley) has been used historically in relations of trade and barter (Mesopotamia circa 3000 BC), it can be inconvenient to use as a medium of exchange or a standard of deferred payment due to transport and storage concerns, and eventual rancidity. Gold or other metals are sometimes used in a price system as a store of perceived value that does not break down due to environmental deterioration and that can be easily stored (demurrage).....

This phenomenon where objects have social power, in which things act as if they have a will of their own, is what Marx sought to unravel with his notion of "the fetishism of commodities." When Marx talked about fetishism he wasn't talking about whips and chains and leather outfits. He was talking about the way the relations between producers in a capitalist society take the form of relations between things.

Check out my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ComradeHakim Summary: A wage at first appears to be just the amount of money which a Capitalist pays a worker in return for a certain amount or period of work. From this, an assumption is made, in which the Capitalist buys the labour of the worker. This is wrong, the Capitalist buys the labour-power of the worker, not the labour. The money given to the worker in exchange for his labour-power could’ve just as easily been used to buy a few kilos of sugar (or any other commodity for that matter). Labour-power in itself is a commodity, no different from the few kilos of sugar. This commodity of the worker, the labour-power, is exchanged for the commodity of the Capitalist (money). This exchange is expressed in a ratio (for example, 20 dollars for 10 hours of i.e. weaving cloth). This money given to the worker is in fact an expression in which the commodity of labour-power is exchanged for other commodities (vegetables, meat, clothes etc. so long as they are worth the same amount price-wise). Price is the estimation of exchange value expressed in money. Wages are simple the special name for the price of labour-power. The worker gets paid from the already existing wealth of the Capitalist, rather than from the proceeds of the selling of his work (i.e. cloth). The Capitalist buys the labour-power of the worker just as he bought raw materials and machinery. The worker is no different from the latter. The worker is himself an instrument of production, and hence has no share in the product that he made. Hence, wages are not a share of the worker in the commodities produced by the worker himself. Instead, wages are part of the already existing commodities with which the Capitalist buys a certain amount of labour-power from the worker. The worker endures this so that he may survive. Since the worker is completely alienated from his labour, he sees this solely as a means of living, and only feels “free” after the work is done, at the dinner table, at the tavern or in bed. Wage-labourers (free-labourers) are different from slaves and serfs in that wage-labourers sell themselves totally in fractions at a time. They submit to the will of the Capitalist class and continually sell themselves in order to live. The worker, in essence, belongs to the Capitalist class as a whole.

http://www.CandlestickForums.com - Volatile Commodities Trading Today's volatile commodities trading can lead to profits if traders follow fundamentals and trade with technical analysis tools such as Candlestick analysis. Gold futures were going up and now they are going down. Industrial raw material commodities are in retreat as global recession threatens again. The dollar is strengthening as Forex investors seek safe haven in the US dollar which in turn makes every dollar denominated commodity cheaper. Stocks have fallen as well as traders concern themselves with the prospect of Europe not really fixing its debt dilemma and leading the world back into negative growth. Amid all of this mess traders will do well to remind themselves that volatile commodities trading can be profitable commodity trading. The value of trading commodities, stocks, options, futures, and foreign currencies as opposed to long term buy and hold investing is that there is profit to be made when equities go down as well as when they go up in price. As the world anticipates another dip to the recession stock prices are down, the US Dollar is rising, and volatile commodities trading is trending to the down side. How does a commodities trader profit it this environment? Is it time to sit on the sidelines, trade commodity futures options, only sell commodities? All might be possibilities but the most important part of trading commodities in today's environment is to have a clear view of market sentiment. Using Candlestick charts, traders have successfully traded commodities going back centuries to when there were Samurai in Japan. Rice traders recognized price patterns and learned that they could buy or sell rice based upon recognizable Candlestick patterns. Today traders buy commodities futures or sell commodities futures based upon the same Candlestick pattern formations that traders have long used. Gold and silver futures are trading more like commodities these days than like safe havens for wealth. Both precious metals peaked recently and then fell as the dollar strengthened. The driving force behind the rise of these metals, especially gold, has been the belief that the dollar and Euro were headed for the abyss. As the dollar strengthens many traders have moved in, assessed the markets with the technical analysis insight provided by Candlestick charting and profited by selling gold or silver futures or selling short on gold exchange traded funds. Although volatile markets can be chaotic they can also be profitable. Successful traders can approach volatile commodities trading very objectively with statistically based Candlestick charting techniques. As oil futures fall traders concern themselves with the unrest in the Middle East as well as the prospect of both a new recession and a possibly stronger dollar. Fundamentals are always discounted by the market but in times of volatile commodities trading traders must rely more strongly on the unbiased assessment provided by Japanese Candlestick charting in successfully anticipating commodity price changes. Candlesticks help traders see new market trends early and anticipate market reversal before being caught in a market correction. As in the days of ancient Japan when rice traders profited by following Candlestick signals traders of today can avoid being caught up on market psychology and objectively trade during periods of volatile commodities trading. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf1Ru8o2bp4

Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) To begin the lecture, Professor Shiller elaborates on the difference between forwards and futures and on the role of futures markets to infer future prices for the underlying commodity or financial asset. Generalizing the discussion beyond futures markets to derivatives markets, he assesses the issue of speculation in those markets and its impact on capitalist activity. Subsequently, he introduces the notions of counterparty risk, standardization of contracts, and clearinghouses within the framework of the first futures market, the market for rice futures in Dojima, Japan. While describing wheat futures, he addresses the price patterns of contango and backwardation, margin accounts that help alleviating counterparty risk, as well as the fair value formula for futures prices. The third commodity futures market is the oil futures market, which leads to description of the history of the oil market in general from the 1870s, to the first and second oil crisis, until the oil price spike in 2008. Professor Shiller concludes this lecture with financial futures, specifically S&P 500 index futures, touching upon the difference between physical delivery and cash settlement. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Firstly all the indicators are going to show you are created from basic candlestick data. The auto information from the open high low and close the basic price action. If you need to learn more about the basics candlesticks and please click here three-part candlestick series. Here are some of the most common mistakes traders make the technical indicators. Don’t overload your screen with indicators and display the indicators that you actually use on your charts a lot of traders overload their charts with indicators as excuse to over trade.Remember indicators are just an indication of something happening in the market they are crystal ball trying to predict the future. Don’t blame the indicators where traders and workout no matter what indicators you use your still have to take losses in trading. Two types of indicators. There are two types of markets trending and range bound or cyber to markets. A trending market looks like this but the market is moving in one direction arrange panel Cyprus market looks like this were the market is moving up and down within a specific range indicators tend to be either suited trending or range assignment markets. Indicator one RSI. The relative strength index compares the magnitude of recent gains to recent losses in the attempt to determine overbought and oversold conditions of instrument as you can see from the chart the RSI ranges from 0 to 100. Insurance is deemed to be overbought once the RSI approaches the 70 level mean that it maybe getting overvalued and is a good candidate for pullback likewise if the RSI approaches 30, then the instrument is oversold and therefore like to reverse. Traders will often use the RSI coming back out of overbought or oversold conditions as a signal to enter the market. A trade using RSI should be whether large rallies and drops in price will affect the RSI by potentially creating false buy or sell signals traders often come by the RSI such as the MACD. Indicator two MACD. Moving average convergence divergences is one of the most well-known unused indicates in technical analysis this indicator is made of two exponential moving averages which help measure momentum henchmen. These moving averages and the changing distances between them become the MACD. Convergence means the moving averages moving closer together, divergence means they’re moving away from one another. Indicator three Bollinger bands. A Bollinger band starts off as a simple moving average and has two standard deviations plotted away from it that sounds a mouthful but the important part is because standard deviation is a measure of volatility Bollinger bands adjust themselves to current market conditions. When markets become more volatile markets widen and move further away. Enjoying less volatile periods the band’s contract moving closer together. The typing of the bands of news by technical traders as an indication there may be volatility to follow.
