What are commodities why do they matter?
How are commodities traded?
Commodity futures are designed for use by commercial producers and consumers such as farmers and food companies, oil producers and energy companies who are buying and selling these products as part of their business and not for retail traders and speculators.
Most commodity futures are deliverable that is they are settled in the underlying product at the end of the contract lifetime, and the contact sizes can also be quite prohibitive.
To overcome these barriers to commodities trading TigerWit offers its clients the ability to trade in cash-settled CFDs or Contracts for Differences. Under a cash-settled contract, the counterparties to a trade, the buyer and seller agree to exchange the PnL or profit and loss generated by the trade. I.E. the winner pays the loser in cash avoiding the need for delivery of the underlying commodity.
