Physical commodities trading involves the buying, selling, and exchanging of tangible raw materials on a global scale.

The birth of the commodity market begins with the producers.

They are the miners, farmers, and oil companies that extract and produce these raw materials. The commodities produced are then sold on the market, often before they are ready for delivery. Key commodities include gold, oil, and grain. This trading is essential for supply chain management, providing the raw materials necessary for production and consumption.
