The fundamentals of trading commodities are those basic principles from which everything else flows. The nuts and bolts, the fundamentals of trading commodities, derive from basic information about commodity supply and demand and, technical commodity trading, how the market reads and reacts to those basics. The eventual price of a commodity on the delivery date of a commodity futures contract will be absolutely based upon supply and demand of the commodity in question. The prices of futures contracts will always be based upon knowledgeable estimates of what that price will be on the delivery date. Traders follow commodities fundamentals with fundamental analysis of factors influencing production, demand, and supply chains. They follow commodities markets with technical analysis tools in order to anticipate short term market trends and market reversal. In beginning commodity futures trading the trader will be well served by taking commodity and futures training.
