Commodities are an essential part of everyday life, ranging from gold to the oil we use refined in our everyday products. At CFI, we offer you the ability to trade in some of the most popular and commonly traded commodities where you can participate in bullish and bearish moves of products you are familiar with. The products offered mimic the actual futures instruments found on exchanges. In other words, the contracts have a set expiry date where you need to close your position before a specific time and day yet they are only cash settled which will not result in any delivery of commodities, unlike futures market where different settlement methods exist.
Commodities are affected by a variety of factors such as global economic conditions, supply and demand, geopolitical tension and several others which means there are many short-term and long-term opportunities on products that trade almost 24 hours per day.
