Commodities are simply goods which are bought and sold at a market price on the basis that quality of the goods is the same irrespective of the origin and supplier.

For example, crude oil from the UK should be the same as crude oil sold in any other location, and the standard unit of measurement is the barrel.

Most commodities will have some standards related to their quality etc which is understood by everyone who trades them.

  • Precious metals – such as gold and silver
  • Energy – crude oil
