Tradable Commodities

Commodities are physical real world goods like gold, wheat and cotton. The price of these goods is affected daily by political and environmental factors and therefore fluctuations can be followed closely.
Speculate on over 22 cash and futures commodity products including Brent and West Texas crude oil, Gold, Silver and Natural Gas, with competitive spreads.

Wheat

Wheat is a grass, originally from the Fertile Crescent region of the Near East, but now cultivated worldwide. Globally, wheat is the leading source of vegetable protein in human food, having higher protein content than either maize (corn) or rice, the other major cereals. In terms of total production tonnages used for food, it is currently second to rice as the main human food crop, and ahead of maize, after allowing for maize’s more extensive use in animal feeds.

Sugar

Sugar is one of the world’s leading sweeteners, mainly produced in Brazil. Sugar production is subsidized and tariffed all over the world. The real price of sugar is actually unknown. In a truly competitive trading environment, sugar prices might be significantly less. Subtle clues surrounding its export and consumption must be watched in order to determine the market's direction.

Platinum

Platinum is a chemical element that's used in jewellery, laboratory equipment, thermometers, dentistry equipment, and catalytic converters. Platinum is one of the rarest metals on earth, yet it can be found in a myriad of general consumer goods. This has led to wild fluctuations in supply and demand, which in turn has caused platinum's price to be quite volatile. Of course, this volatility only excites traders even more, and creates huge opportunities for profit (and loss). Platform trading hours : Mon – Fri 06:00 - 21:00 GMT

Silver

Silver, was first coined to produce money in around 700 BCE by the Lydians. Used as both an industrial metal and a hard asset, it plays double duty in the commodities market. Trading it and predicting its price is a careful balancing act between what consumers need and what the currency market demands. Much like gold, it is considered to be a natural hedge against inflation and in the last few years was highly correlated with world growth. Platform trading hours : Mon – Fri 06:00 - 21:00 GMT

Oil

Sweet crude oil is a type of petroleum. High quality, low sulfur crude oil is commonly used for processing into gasoline and is in high demand, particularly in the industrialized nations. “Light sweet crude oil” is the most sought-after version of crude oil as it contains a disproportionately large amount of these fractions that are used to process gasoline, kerosene, and high-quality diesel. Oil is considered a natural hedge against inflation as in the last few years was highly correlated with the world’s growth. Platform trading hours : Mon – Fri 06:00 - 21:00 GMT

Gold

Historically gold coinage was widely used as currency; When paper money was introduced, it typically was a receipt redeemable for gold coin or bullion. Gold's historical significance and electrical conductivity ensures that it will be in demand for a long time to come. As an investment, gold has cyclically come into and out of favour, and has experienced some of the most extreme pricing of any of the commodity markets. Whether gold will continue to be considered a viable inflationary hedge remains to be seen, but the simple fact that it is a rare and beautiful metal will always keep it in the news.

Coffee

One of the world’s most popular drinks, it is assumed that 80% of adults drink some sort of coffee or a derivative of coffee at list once a day. Like many other soft commodities Brazil is the largest producer of coffee. From its origins in the ninth century to its humble commercial beginnings at the Kiva Han to its mega-star status in today's modern arena, coffee has cemented its position as an essential traded commodity.

Indices to trade from

Indices represent an underlying financial market. Indices don’t rely on individual stocks or assets, but rather as a whole group of them, which tends to make them more stable and have less obvious peaks and troughs. This stability means that they are not as affected by daily environmental and political factors like commodities trading, but as we have seen in recent years, can quite dramatically turn one way or the other for longer periods of times.

There are various indices that are available for trading. Some of the most important indices that are traded via the binary options arena include:Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, CAC 40, DAX, FTSE 100
