Commodities touch every facet of our lives as the raw materials that compose our homes, food, entertainment and much more. Trading commodities allow investors to take advantage of economic trends, shifts in supply and demand, and even changes in the weather. Commodities are typically broken into two categories: hard commodities and soft commodities. Hard commodities are typically viewed as natural resources that must be mined or extracted from the earth, such as oil, gold and copper. Soft commodities are generally agricultural products and livestock. Within those two main categories, you can easily see some smaller categories. For example, precious metals are popular commodities on the exchanges. Be sure to explore all our articles regarding opportunities in commodities.
