Video: Intro to Commodity Trading — Hedgers & Speculators

May 8, 2010 at 11:59 by Andriy Moraru

Starting off with the explanation of why some commodities are popular for trading and some of them aren’t, this video goes into describing the main commodity market participants — hedgers and speculators. It’s an important introduction for the non-experienced commodity traders (or more exactly trader-wannabes) as it helps to understand who’s actually moving the prices for commodities and making the market function. It’s also recommended to anyone who wanders what role do speculators play in the market.
