Commodities include agricultural products such as wheat and corn, energy products such as oil and gas and metals such as gold and silver. Commodity markets have been traded for thousands of years when producers exchanged basic commodities such as wheat and gold in markets around the world. Traditionally, the producers were the ones who traded the commodity markets by placing their products on the market for sale.
