Soft commodities

Soft commodities present good diversification for traders as their prices are built around the moving and delivering of physical assets. Traders enter an exciting market with suppliers, merchants and large buyers, which protects their prices on future deliveries and locks in key strategic supplies. At maturity, each financial trade gives rise to the delivery of a commodity cargo somewhere in the world, making this an exciting global range of trading instruments.
