Investing in commodities

trading in commoditiesA growing number of people are getting hooked on commodities trading. While stock prices mainly fall in times of economic crisis, commodities like gold, oil and silver tend to skyrocket to incredible heights. You can actually profit from these fluctuations in the prices of commodities!

It isn’t practical to store the commodities in your backyard; luckily, thanks to the introduction of online brokers, it is possible to invest in commodities without any responsibilities.

Commodities are scarce

A lot of commodities are scarce, which makes it very attractive to invest in them. The prices fluctuate a lot in the short term, but as soon as the supply drops, the prices can rise significantly if the demand stays the same. Commodities react strongly to economic developments and can therefore be incredibly volatile. This is why it is profitable to trade commodities in the short term.
