WHAT IS SOFT COMMODITY TRADING
Soft commodities - the very foundation of worldwide food and clothing production - are agricultural products that offer a unique trading opportunity. Commodities trading requires traders to navigate various factors, including weather conditions, global demand for these products, and geopolitical events that impact their production. These factors make the market unpredictable and can lead to both challenges and potential rewards.
Trade soft commodities including coffee, cocoa, cotton, and even orange juice with Vantage’s soft commodities CFDs. Contracts-for-Difference or CFDs allow you to speculate on the price movements of a commodity without actually owning it.
