Commodity Knowledge Center

The commodity trade industry has many different aspects ranging from physical commodities, commodity trading, speculative trading, commodity logistics, finance and risk management. We aim to help you understand this unique industry and all of its different facets and how this relate to commodity trade and risk management solution (CTRM) through this Commodity Knowledge Center.

Unique about commodities compared to other products is the constant price movement which puts a challenge to the administration of its business process. These constant price movements (also known as price volatility) introduces also the need for a derivative component in this industry. Without derivatives the volatility would be increased and instruments such as commodity futures and options smoothens the price bumps. The existence of both a physical and derivative market introduces the need for specific system needs to accommodate administration of a commodity trade or purchase operation. A CTRM system such as Agiblocks accommodate these specific needs, where in addition each commodity own specialized properties to consider in such CTRM system. For this reason commodity knowledge is essential to commodity trade but also to implement a CTRM solution.
