Fundaments of Commodity Trading
The fundamentals in commodities trading vary by commodity. The fundamentals for trading gold futures have to do with the economy and the ability to economically mine gold. Since many use gold bullion for hedging against inflation or even protection against economic and monetary collapse, a recession or persistent inflation will typically drive the price of gold up. Much of the gold in the developed world has been mined near to surface. Thus extraction is taking place at great depth in the mines of North America and South Africa. Newer mines where extraction is easier are often in developing and politically unstable countries. The commodity market for an agricultural product such as corn or soybeans will be very dependent upon the weather in the world’s major crop growing areas such as the United States Corn Belt. Knowing market analysis with the fundamentals is essential for winning with commodities for it is the fundamentals of supply and demand that will determine commodity price when the commodity futures contracts expire.
