Why Would I Want to Trade Commodities?
There is really only one reason to trade
to make money. Commodities allow you to make large sums of money in
relatively short amounts of time, with only a small initial investment. What allows you to
do this is leverage. When you trade commodities you are putting the power of leverage on
What does leverage do for me?
Just how leverage in the commodity markets can help you is shown in the
following example. You can control $1,000,000 eurodollars for just under $600. What does
this mean? Well, a eurodollar is an American dollar deposited in a European bank. As the
interest rate of these European banks fluctuates the value of the eurodollar changes with
it. So if the interest rate changed by just .1 % (that is one tenth of one percent) then
the $600 you invested in eurodollars would be worth $850. If it changes by .3 %
your money is more than doubled! This is the power of leverage. You are controlling a
million dollars of currency with $600.
You may be asking... but what if the interest rates change in the
opposite direction? Can't I lose money just as quickly? Yes, you could if you did not know

As you can probably see from the story of farmer Joe in
What Are Commodities? a large sum of money can be made in a
short amount of time. There are many ways to profit from the same price move. You could
have bought someone else's corn in that example and doubled the amount of corn that you
held, and thus doubled your profit when you sold. You could have waited a few more days if
you thought the price of corn would have gone up more and made more money. The variations
go on depending upon your trading style. Let me give you some other real life examples of
what you could have made if you were trading commodities:
If you had bought Silver on the 1st of February and sold it
a week later you would have made $3750.00! If you had bought Orange Juice on
November 7th and sold it a week later you would have made $1200.00!
