Trading commodities is an ancient art, dating back further than trading stocks and bonds. We trade mainly GOLD, OIL and NATURAL GAS.
Commodities aren’t what they used to be, trading from only $10 billion in the year 2000 to well over $400 billion of assets under management today. Commodities trading houses have simultaneously made themselves much more attractive to investors, particularly through consolidation.
Only 15 large houses trade globally across a range of commodities today, compared with 15-20 traders in each commodity 20 years ago. These houses are powerful and built on solid foundations of diversification, trading in commodities ranging from crude oil to petroleum to gas, corn, coffee, zinc, coal and even in some cases iron ore.
When you want to diversify your portfolio and guard against inflation, commodities are a great safe haven.
