Trading Soft Commodities With Tredero
Commodity trading pre-dates the invention of money, with the first use of objects resembling coins dating back to around 5,000 B.C. Before that, all trade was conducted with commodities such as Gold or Silver or even agricultural products such as Corn or Wheat.
Soft Commodities describe goods that are either raised or harvested, such a Cattle or Corn, for example.
Commodity prices are highly susceptible to supply and demand and can be influenced by climate change and geopolitical tensions. If the prevailing weather conditions are particularly favourable, for example, resulting in an exceptionally high yield for Cron crops, then a reasonable expectation would be for the price of Corn to fall.
Supply and demand are among the key drivers of commodity prices, a fact reflected in the numerous reports on crop yields and production figures for all soft commodity classes. The Tredero Economic Calendar is an excellent source for these reports making it an invaluable resource for all traders.Start Trading
