Although when investing in the financial world you think first about the stock market, it is important to know that it is not the only market in which you can invest and that there are options that offer greater stability and liquidity, which in turn translates into a greater sense of security.

One of these markets is that of commodities or raw materials, which is defined as markets in which products such as corn, natural gas, oil, leather, pork tripe, gold, etc. are bought and sold.

Due to the high amount of commodities, they can be classified into large categories, among which stand out: grains, energy, metals and meats.

The energies continue to be one of the most important and within this list can be found: crude oil, gasoline, natural gas, ethanol and naphtha. These continue to be in high demand due to their role in sustaining life as we know it.

In the case of metals, you can find both gold and silver, but also copper, platinum, aluminum and palladium. Part of its importance for the market comes from the role that gold and silver have had in the history of mankind, but also from the multiple applications that these metals are given today. That combination makes metals an excellent commodity market in which to start.

For the grain category, wheat, soybeans, corn and oats stand out. Obviously they represent an important commodity market thanks to their demand and uses.

Finally, the meat category contains live cattle, live pigs, butter and milk.
