Excellence in agricultural trade

Commodities in general can be divided into three different groups: Agricultural, Metals and Energy. When thinking of ‘commodity trade’, the mind easily goes to petroleum, gold, precious metals and, basically, any of the commodities that are either Metals or Energy. But agricultural or soft commodities are something to be desired as well. Indeed, the industry has experienced boosts in interest due to investors looking to diversify their portfolio of stocks and bonds. For traders, even the smallest percentage of any soft commodity will lead to a reduction of both volatility and risks. The top five of soft commodities in terms of annual consumption is made up of cocoa, coffee, grain, sugar and cotton. Agiblocks covers all five, of course – but has four of them listed as Specialized Commodities to boot. 

Agiboo’s flagship software was launched over a decade ago and focused on the early adopter initiatives for cocoa, coffee and sugar. It offered focused industry CTRM for these first commodities, and has since expanded to support anything from grain to cotton, nuts and (edible) oils. In other words, almost the whole range of agricultural commodities can be traded by implementing Agiblocks as your go-to solution. Moreover, Agiblocks comes with unique features for four specific commodities: Sugar, Coffee, Cocoa and Grains.
