Commodities are classified into four main groups: metals, energy, agricultural produce and livestock, and meat. However, oil, gold, and agricultural products are the most traded. Commodities offer avenues to diversify investment portfolio beyond the traditional financial instruments. Generally, commodities are long term and operate differently from stock markets. The distinct feature of commodity markets is that they are reliable, valuable, and non-volatile compared to other traditional securities. Generally, since it is tedious to transport commodities, they are usually traded on futures contracts. Commodities future contracts are popularly traded in U.S dollars.
