Why accommodate
commodity investment?

One of the major benefits of commodity trading is that it is traded in form of commodity future contracts, in which one can make profit without actual possession of the commodity. Few other benefits are:

  • Potential for higher returns

    Commodity future trading is done on margins, thus investors get greater leverage and have the opportunity to get higher returns.

  • Correlated markets

    Some commodities are fundamentally global commodities and their prices are highly correlated across the markets in several countries, leaving less room for manipulations.

  • Diversification

    Returns generated in commodity market are independent of the price fluctuations of the equity market or debt market and thus creating a good investment diversification.

  • Inflation protection

    Investment in commodity future is an inflation hedging tool, as commodity prices establish the price levels and protect against inflation.
