Trading Commodities with Peak

Commodity trading involves valuable resources like metals and oil, which play a significant role in the global economy. Common commodities include gold, silver, and oil, which are among the most actively traded energy resources. When trading commodities in Peak Markets, you are not directly purchasing physical assets like gold bars or oil barrels. Instead, you trade the price fluctuations of the underlying assets through Contracts for Difference (CFDs). This unique approach allows you to capitalize on both upward and downward price movements, providing the opportunity for profit regardless of the market direction.

Types of commodities

Soft commodities

Soft commodities, also known as “softs” are natural products like coffee, cocoa, sugar, and cotton. Due to their importance for daily sustenance, the availability and scarcity of soft commodities create speculation opportunities for traders and investors.

Hard commodities

Natural resources, such as metals and oil reserves, are examples of hard commodities. They are the foundation of a country`s economic health, and global demand and they are tracked to predict an economy`s future stability.
