What affects Commodity Prices? http://www.contracts-for-difference.com/markets/Commodity-CFDs.html If you've found this video useful, please click the like button and share it with your friends and remember to SUBSCRIBE to remain up-to-date! This article features factors that affect commodity prices - just what does cause the price of wheat gold and oil to fluctuate? Find out by clicking the above link to see all of the factors that change commodity prices. If you want to trade on the value of commodities, you can do so in several different ways. There are spot and future markets, but most traders will use a more convenient tool, such as spreadbetting, in order to play on the volatility of commodities. There are many companies that are heavily dependent on particular commodities. For instance, petrol refineries need crude oil, and this price typically changes. So you can expect the price of crude oil to have an impact on the share price of companies like Royal Dutch Shell and BP. Even if you do not trade commodities, this is a reason you may be interested in what causes commodity prices to change. And put simply, the old standby of the economist, supply and demand, govern all the fluctuations in pricing of commodities. This is not to say that supply and demand are equally important for all types of commodities. For instance, some are more dependent on supply, whereas others have a dependency on a varying demand. Consider agricultural products. These include products like wheat and corn. You're probably not going to see a big change in demand for these products, so much as you are going to see large changes in supply. These would result from crop failures and disease, weather conditions, etc. On the other hand, the supply of metals such as gold and platinum is fairly steady at any particular time. A more powerful factor in the pricing of these is how much demand there may be, and demand changes result from increasing industrialization in Third World countries, making these metals more desirable to the population, and from societal aspects such as inflation that tend to change the attitude towards precious metals. It is worth noting that the price of commodities in certain groups tends to move up and down in tandem. In the precious metals, gold, silver, platinum, and palladium would all tend to go up and down together in value. It is unlikely that you would see the price of gold fall and the price of palladium soar at the same time. Similarly, if you consider grains such as oats, corn, and wheat, these prices are likely to move in concert. To some extent, each can be a substitute for another. If the price of oats goes up, then farmers may buy more corn to feed their livestock, and this increase in demand for corn makes that price rise too. Although we are talking about commodities, you can also see this in effect in some stocks and shares. As an example, you would usually see the shares of banks such as RBS and Barclays going up and down together, unless there is a particular scandal or revelation about one of them. It is because of this that many traders limit the amount of exposure in any particular market sector. Diversifying by buying into different companies does not give diversfication if all the companies' shares rise and fall together.

Commodity Futures Options - An Introduction
 
06:29
Commodity Futures options enables the trader to effectively trade futures, but without the potentially unlimited risk normally associated with price movements in a futures contract. With commodity futures options, you can trade 30 different markets, each of which are in a variety of chart patterns and price volatility.

Futures Market Explained
 
04:27
Farmers use various tools to control the many risks in agriculture. Watching the weather influences when they plant or harvest. Buying crop insurance and selecting farm bill safety net programs helps protect them from crop devastation. But they can also manage some of the threat posed by volatile market prices by participating in the futures market. Farmers can get a feel for how that works if they play Commodity Classic, an online teaching tool that uses fictitious bushels of grain in a fake futures market. But here at Harvest Public Media, we wanted to better understand how the futures market helps both producers and users of a major commodity, such as corn. And how the benefits trickle down to regular food consumers. Here’s what we learned.

Commodity Cost of Carry: Storage Cost (FRM T3-15)
 
13:34
[Here is my XLS https://trtl.bz/2l5IV8G] In the cost of carry (COC) model, storage cost is treated like negative income. If we reduce the total storage cost over the life of the futures contract, given by (U), then the theoretical futures price is given by F(0) = [S(0) + U]*exp(rT). If we can represent storage cost as a constant proportion of the spot price (i.e., with continuous compounding), denoted small (u), then F(0) = S(0)*exp[(r+u)T].

FRM: Why a futures price differs from a forward price
 
07:11
Why would the prices differ? The key difference is the daily settlement of the futures contract. The investor in a futures contract must maintain a margin account. The key issue is the correlation between the spot price and the interest rate. If the correlation (spot, interest rate) is strongly positive, an increase in the spot implies an increase in the forward/futures value (recall delta equals approximately 1.0 for both). But only the futures contract is settled daily. In this case, an increase in value implies excess margin; the excess margin can be withdrawn from the margin account and (owing to the positive correlation) invested at a higher interest rate.

Trading Around Limit Moves in the Commodities Markets: Limit Up
 
04:53
Commodities Limit Up. I don't normally trade commodities that much, however there has been a lot going on in the kind of markets that are a little less in the news like silver, platinum, copper, gold and Bitcoin. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! For instance today Cotton is Limit Up on the day. Limit up means that the price will move up and there is a limit set by the exchange where it cannot go any higher for the day. We've had a Limit Up situation in live cattle for a couple of days just recently. There are some things going on in those commodity markets at the moment that are causing this. Limit up and limit down are the maximum amounts a commodity future may increase in price (or decrease in price) in any particular trading day. Traditionally, they are utilised to limit the effect of unforseen events on futures contracts that can lead to major spikes in underlying commodity prices. Otherwise there is a risk that a futures contract's price may go to some wild number due to market panic. Limit ups and limit downs can lead to a difference between a market’s current price and the price reflected in its matching futures contract.

FRM: Contango & backwardation in commodity forward markets
 
07:48
Contango and backwardation are about the relationship between the spot and forward price. If Forward is greater than Spot, it's contango (upward sloping forward curve). If Forward is less than Spot, it's backwardation (inverted forward curve). The "normal" prefix refers to relationship to expected future spot price and is harder to figure.

Which Markets To Trade? Trading Commodities http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/commodities/commodities-spread-betting.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Commodities like sugar, soybean and wheat are an asset class that you may have thought out of your reach but given spread betting there might never have been a better time to start trading commodities. In these volatile times you can use spread betting, futures, options and CFDs to access commodities trading and make money out of trading them in much the same way that you do spread betting on gold or crude oil. It is also worth noting here that sugar is one of the most liquid soft commodities you could spread bet on with a bid-offer of about $1.7. Trading Commodities Finally in this short review of the markets you can trade, you can consider trading on commodities. Commodities are usually traded in large quantities, and trading volume is high, which means they are readily available, even though you may find higher spreads than with some other markets. Commodities include a whole host of items. One of the most well-known is crude oil, which actually comes in two variations, West Texas and Brent. The price of oil can be affected by many world matters. OPEC is in control, but you can find political situations where countries can reduce their output or increase it, with a corresponding effect. In fact, we don’t have many days supply of oil in store at any particular time, so the price is responsive to market impacts. Longer-term oil prices are affected by the severity of winters, increasing efficiencies, shale oil production, and demand such as that from China, with its expanding economy. Another well-known commodity that can be traded readily is gold. The price of gold has been less volatile recently than historically, but can still give opportunities. Gold is always regarded as a safe haven for cash when it seems that cash is becoming worth less and stocks and shares are in a down market. Threats of war seem to cause a rush to physical wealth such as gold. Again, you can use technical analysis techniques to anticipate possible moves. Along with gold, silver is another precious metal that has much the same characteristics, even though it is significantly cheaper than gold. If you chart gold and silver together you will quite often find they move in concert. The interesting thing is that their characteristics are very different. Most of the gold that has ever been mind is still available in some form such as jewellery. But very little of the total production of silver is still around. Silver is used in industrial processes, and was notably used extensively for photography in the last century. It gets used up, and companies that need it are always looking to buy it on the futures market in order to lock in the price. Even so, gold and silver prices tend to be in a fixed ratio over the years. There are many other commodities. All the soft commodities include the agricultural products such as corn, wheat, hogs, and cattle. Obviously these prices are seasonal and are also affected by the weather. You’ll find that the prices tend to have wider spreads than the hard goods. Whatever market you decide to trade in, you are spoiled for choice. But if you change your focus from week to week, as you find it difficult to make money in your latest slot, the danger is that you will never learn any of the markets and be unable to trade effectively. You need to focus for a time on particular markets and get to know them. Every trader has strengths and weaknesses, and in time you will find a market that is best suited to your style of trading.

15. Forward and Futures Markets
 
01:12:37
Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) To begin the lecture, Professor Shiller elaborates on the difference between forwards and futures and on the role of futures markets to infer future prices for the underlying commodity or financial asset. Generalizing the discussion beyond futures markets to derivatives markets, he assesses the issue of speculation in those markets and its impact on capitalist activity. Subsequently, he introduces the notions of counterparty risk, standardization of contracts, and clearinghouses within the framework of the first futures market, the market for rice futures in Dojima, Japan. While describing wheat futures, he addresses the price patterns of contango and backwardation, margin accounts that help alleviating counterparty risk, as well as the fair value formula for futures prices. The third commodity futures market is the oil futures market, which leads to description of the history of the oil market in general from the 1870s, to the first and second oil crisis, until the oil price spike in 2008. Professor Shiller concludes this lecture with financial futures, specifically S&P 500 index futures, touching upon the difference between physical delivery and cash settlement. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Trading Commodity Futures
 
03:49
http://profitabletradingtips.com/profitable-trading-tips/trading-commodity-futures Trading Commodity Futures By www.ProfitableTradingTips.com We wrote recently about Winning with Commodities. What one trades are commodity futures. For example, when a trader expects the price of gold to rise he can buy gold bullion or shares in an exchange traded fund that tracks the price of gold bullion. And by trading commodity futures on gold bullion he can lock in a price to buy or sell gold at a later date. Trading commodity futures is a common practice by both the producers and buyers of commodities such as wheat, corn, soybeans or live cattle. They do this in order to hedge their risk in case of a price change. And speculators trading commodity futures buy and sell futures on the same commodities in search of profits. Basics of Commodity Trading The basics of any commodity have to do with supply and demand and how these affect current price. Gold futures go up when the economy weakens and down when the economy is strong. Gold bugs hoard gold as a hedge against inflation. In trading gold a trader bases his trades on both fundamentals and short term market sentiment. Traders jump in and out of the gold market based upon their analysis of prices. When there is a drought in the American Corn Belt, Brazil or Ukraine wheat, corn and soybean prices go up as traders expect a production shortfall. When there are ideal growing conditions in the major grain producing regions of the world the prices of corn, wheat and soybeans tend to fall as a market glut is expected. When there is another threat of war in the Middle East the price of oil rises. Those trading commodity futures on oil will expect to see higher prices in the short term but a return to normal in a year or so. The introduction of fracking technology has greatly increased oil and gas supplies in the USA and is expected to keep prices low and stable for years. Nevertheless, chaos in other oil producing regions of the world tends to drive prices in the short term. Traders buy and sell futures contracts on oil and other products based on their analysis of where the market will be in a few months or years. Short Term Market Sentiment Markets are never totally efficient in the short term. So, there is profit to be made in trading commodity futures when either good or bad news hits the markets for precious metals, energy products or agricultural products. Although the fundamentals of any commodity are available to all traders the tactics used by each will differ. Thus trading commodities is a daily, hour by hour, minute by minute job as the trader watches and searches for opportunities in his market. Knowing the fundamentals of a commodity is essential to futures trading. Skill in the use of technical indicators and the ability to be there when changes happen leads to profits in trading commodity futures. Whether you prefer a heavily statistically based trading tool or something as basic and easy to read as Japanese Candlesticks you can take advantage of short term market sentiment in trading commodity futures. http://youtu.be/y8JbMF2-tlg
