Commodities

Diversify Beyond
Traditional Securities

The commodity market is especially dominated by energy (think oil) and metal (think gold) products. 

Oil and gas prices are determined by the global supply and demand for the physical product, which make these assets a popular choice when there is a surge in energy consumption.

Precious metals, in particular gold, is particularly attractive to price speculators due to its well-known inverse correlation with global stock prices, as investors look to more stable ‘safe-haven assets’ during times of economic uncertainty.
