Commodity Trading History in Finance - August 22nd, 2012

Commodity exchanges are trading organisations that engage in transactions that involve the buying, and selling of futures related to the commodities market. The commodity exchange maintains a physical location where trading activity takes place. Nowadays, a commodity exchange will also provide online access to trading activity, including the ability to trade on the exchange by electronic means.

One of the most well known commodity exchanges in the world today is Commodity Exchange, Inc. of New York. It is located in the Manhattan area of New York City. It is known simply as COMEX; the particular commodity exchange has been around for decades, and has a solid reputation throughout the investment community. COMEX is particularly well known for metal futures, although it also engages in other commodity options trading.

The past several years have seen a growing backlash against "paper" investments as more and more investors consider hard assets to be a safe haven against the implications of central bank money printing. But as the global economy visibly slows, this question arises in many minds: Are commodities, which have been on a tear since the March 2009 bottom, finally topping out?

The question requires both a fundamental economic response as well as a technical chart analysis.

We can start by observing the common-sense connection between demand for commodities such as copper, cement, steel,etc. and economic expansion. When demand rises faster than supply, prices rise. Since supplies of commodities face all sorts of restraints in terms of extraction rates, energy costs, and declining reserves, increased demand quickly pushes prices higher.
