Commodity trading has been a part of economic and social activities since ancient times, and it was initially manifested as barter exchange. With the development of society, commodity futures trading gradually formed.
Entering the field of futures trading, novice traders need to systematically master the operation mechanism of the futures market, the characteristics of different futures varieties and the corresponding trading rules, and it is crucial to have a deep understanding of the margin system, the core risk control means, and learn how to properly use leverage.
A commodity is a basic good used in commerce that is interchangeable with other goods of the same type. Commodities are most often used as inputs in the production of other goods or services. The quality of a given commodity may slightly vary, but it is essentially uniform across producers. Examples include grains, gold, beef, oil, and natural gas.
