Commodities | Trading Terms

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
David Jones (7 months ago)
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.
David, thank you very much.

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.

Could you make a video on CFD's; how they work, and how to use them, please? Thanks :)
Trading 212 (9 months ago)
Update: A vid on CFD's will be live next week, before that we'll have several on the stock market in general.

Can you make a video, what makes sense for a long-term portfolio in your trading platform?
Trading 212 (9 months ago)
We will be doing a video on trading different time frames - minutes, days, weeks and months. Stick around, it should be up in several weeks.

Thanks for the video! One question. Is it more important to keep an eye on the NEWS or on the graphs watching different levels. Maybe you would do both things? Appreciate the answer
David Jones (9 months ago)
Hi - for me it would be the charts as that will show the reaction to whatever news has come out. But of course, there is no reason to not watch both.
