Gold and Oil are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to commodities. In this video David Jones explains what the three main groups are and what factors influence them the most.
Energy, precious metals and agricultural products are what make the world function. They are its lifeblood and vital organs. Because of this importance they are actually traded often with futures, so that there is a guarantee that they will be there when needed.
From politics and weather to disease and speculation, commodities are among the most volatile instruments in the financial world. Their specifics are governed by a wide range of variables and understanding what drives their prices up and down is one of the hardest challenges that traders face.
Among the other more popular commodities we have silver, natural gas, wheat, orange juice, cattle. The list is actually quite long and the factors that change their price too. Whether it’s interest rates in the U.S., oil production in Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, or a insect invasion in Southeast Asia, it’s definitely an exciting world to trade in.

Good morning David, I have been enjoying your insightful videos very much. Most oscillating indicators are historical, so, in your opinion what are the best leading indicators that you use? Oil? Oil futures? A whole basket of oil traded stocks and indices? If you could give me a few examples that you really like, I would love to hear. Or how about a video of pros and cons of leading and lagging market indicators and their uses for short and or long term trading. Thank you for your time, Williamson
Hi Williamson. I think the best leading indicator to use is price. Support, resistance, trend - all of that. Oscillators have their place, but price action is more important. There are a couple of videos of this on the Trading 212 channel.
Hi there david! Just wanna stop by and say thanks to you and this channel from helping me to learn many things from zero knowledge about investing in such shorter period of time, the videos are very simple and easy to understand. I've a question recently though, would like to ask is there any ways or indicators that could show or imply us that there's big investors in a certain stock, as we all know, bankers could lift the stock price higher, which is why I'm curious to know if we could identify them before a stock starting its trend upwards. Do hope you could reply this message. Thank you very much! :)
Hi. Thanks for the comments, glad its helping. Re your question: not really. You could look at ownership of a particular stock e.g. in the UK, over a certain %ge it has to be declared. Then I suppose unusually large volumes. But I don't think all of this can be boiled down to a simple indicator.
Hi Karthik, here are some videos on Price Action trading:

The Tron Roadmap.
Follow us on Twitter , Facebook , Steemit , and join our Telegram channel for the latest blockchain and cryptocurrency news.
With an already existing user base of over 180 million, the opportunities for this Blockchain and cryptocurrency seem enormous. Also, it will likely not have to bootstrap and this is a deviation from the trajectory of most apps and platforms of this nature.
An outsider continues to steal the crypto spotlight.
Investors started telling CoinDesk in late December that Telegram was looking at doing some kind of ICO.
All that on top of promising super fast payments and micropayments using mobile devices, with negligible transaction fees.
With these announcements, fake sites quickly popped up claiming to be the place to buy grams. Confirming that one was fake in a tweet proved to be the closest Durov has come to a public confirmation of the crowdsale.
By mid-month, the idea that Telegram might raise its fundraising round even higher was reported by Bloomberg.
They come up with a lockup period that releases tokens after four waiting periods, the longest one last 18 months.
Finally, Telegram has apparently offered investors some kind of refund provision if it fails to deliver the TON platform by the end of October 2019, Business Insider reported.
The leader in blockchain news, CoinDesk is a media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of editorial policies. CoinDesk is an independent operating subsidiary of Digital Currency Group, which invests in cryptocurrencies and blockchain startups.
The filing names Ton Issuer Inc. and Telegram Group Inc. along with the two individuals, Pavel Durov and Nikolai Durov, as related persons.
Apart from building on the extensive userbase Telegram has amassed, and serving as a medium of exchange with a native cryptocurrency called GRAM, the TON platform also aims to include smart contracts and decentralized services such as TON Storage and TON Proxy.
