The commodities market is one area we’re taking a special interest in…

Commodities refer to the actual physical products traded through various exchanges, like corn, soybeans, coffee and gold. One huge benefit of trading commodities is that there are only about a dozen markets worthy of your attention at any given time. That means it’s easier to get to know each market’s behavior and seasonal tendencies.

Still, investors often avoid trading commodities, thinking the market is too complex. But as you’ll see in our research, commodities trading can be as simple as trading in the stock market. Only the profits can be much bigger.
