Advantages of Commodities Trading with OBRinvest


9 June 2021

A commodity is a basic good that is considered fungible and is used in economic commerce. The fungibility is an important aspect of any commodity since it means that any unit of the commodity is considered as exactly the same as any other one, no matter who the producer was. In addition to being used in the production of material goods and food, commodities can also give investors another way to diversify and to speculate.

Popular commodities

Commodities fall under a number of different categories, which include energies, metals, and agricultural products. Among all of those, by far the most popular commodities are crude oil and gold. There are some other popular commodities, including the ‘sister’ metal to gold, silver. Cocoa and coffee are popular assets among traders as well as other agricultural products, such as grains corn, wheat and soybeans.

Precious metals

The precious metals commodities include the very popular gold and silver. This category also includes the less popular platinum and palladium. And while not a precious metal, copper is often grouped together with these due to its great popularity. Precious metals are very important for traders, as they can serve as a hedge against inflation, uncertainty, upheaval and volatility. Gold is particularly important in this respect and is considered to be a stable and reliable asset. For this reason, gold is often the ‘safe-haven’ of choice during periods of currency devaluation or high inflation.

Energies

The best-known commodity in the energy complex is crude oil, which is traded as both the U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude, and the global benchmark Brent crude. Other energy commodities include heating oil, gasoline, natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Investors in the energy complex need to be very tuned into the global economy, as shifts in demand for energy can have a dramatic influence on the price. It is also important to keep a watch on OPEC for any changes in production and on technological advances that could replace the need for traditional energy products. One current trend towards electric vehicles has already had a dramatic impact on crude pricing and as the industry grows, could have an even greater impact in the future.

Advantages

Trading example

One way to trade gold is to use the gold-silver ratio to determine entry and exit points. The gold silver ratio, for those unfamiliar with it, is a measure of the number of ounces of silver it takes to purchase one ounce of gold. So, as an example, if gold is trading at $1,500 and silver is trading at $15 the gold-silver ratio is at 100:1.

It’s interesting to note that historically governments have set this ratio themselves. In the Roman Empire the ratio was set to 12:1 and the U.S. government set a ratio of 15:1 from the late 18th century until the start of the 20th century.
