What are Commodities?

Commodities like gold, silver, platinum, oil and natural gas are raw materials that play a fundamental role in the global economy. Their prices are directly related to their discovery, extraction and consumption and determine the cost of many goods and services. You can trade them to try and capitalise on this supply and demand dynamic.

How commodities trading works

Commodity trading allows you to speculate on the price movements of commodities without owning the physical commodities. If you think the price of a commodity is likely to rise, you can simply buy it. If you think the price of the commodity is likely to fall, you can sell it.

Bid and ask prices

Each commodity is quoted with two prices, the 'Bid' price and the 'Ask' price. The bid price is the price at which you can sell the commodity. While the ask price is the price at which you can buy it. The ask price is always higher than the bid price and the difference between these prices is called the 'Spread'.

Go long or short

The basic idea is to buy (go long) when you think the commodity will appreciate in value and sell (go short) when you think it will depreciate in value. You can trade commodities long or short, meaning that you can trade rising as well as falling prices.

Commodities are traded in lots

When trading commodities, trades are placed in terms of lots. Where one lot is determined by the quantity of the commodity being traded. For example, one standard lot for gold is 100 ounces, one mini lot is 10 ounces and one micro lot is one ounce. Check our contracts specifications page to learn more about commodity lot sizes.

Commodity trading involves leverage and margin

Commodity trading involves using leverage, which allows you to buy and sell commodities worth more than the amount you have in your trading account. For example, trading with 20:1 leverage would allow you to buy 100 barrels of crude oil at only 5% of the current market value. Leverage can magnify potential profits but it also increases risk and speeds up losses.

Commodities trading example

You decide to buy 0.1 lots of Crude Oil at $70 using 20:1 leverage.

chart
Trade size:

0.1 lots = 100 barrels of Crude Oil

Position value:

100 barrels x $70 = $7,000

Margin requirement:

USD 7,000 / 20 = $350

Now you have opened a long position in the S&P500 worth USD 22,250. Since futures are traded using leverage, only $225 was used as margin from your trading account.  After some time, the price of the S&P500 moves and you decide to sell.

Scenario 1

chart

Crude Oil moves up from $70 to $80 and you decide to sell.

This is how the profit or loss on the trade would be calculated.

P/L = (Current price - Initial price) x Quantity

P/L = ($80 - $70) x 100

P/L = $10 x 100

P/L = $1,000

Scenario 2

chart

Crude Oil moves down from $70 to $60 and you decide to sell.

This is how the profit or loss on the trade would be calculated.

P/L = (Current price - Initial price) x Quantity

P/L = ($60 - $70) x 100

P/L = -$10 x 100

P/L = - $1,000
