Frequently Asked Questions

Commodity markets are exchanges that facilitate the buying and selling of various raw materials and primary agricultural products. These products, which are often referred to as commodities, can be physical items such as metals, grains, or energy resources, or they can be financial instruments that represent these physical items. Producers, consumers, and investors may trade, discover prices, and manage risks more easily when they use commodity markets. These markets can be organised as exchanges or over-the-counter (OTC) platforms, allowing players to hedge, speculate, or gain a steady supply of essential commodities.
Commodity prices are generally determined by supply and demand dynamics in the open market. These prices change according to dynamic market conditions, which are influenced by factors including global demand, supply levels, market sentiment, weather, geopolitical events, and currency fluctuations. Government policies and regulations may affect pricing as well, particularly in controlled markets, even if commodities exchanges contribute in price discovery through trading activity.
