In India, commodity trading is relatively new vis-à-vis stock trading. However, investing in commodities provides a lucrative avenue to earn good returns over periods of time or even hedge yourself against shocks, especially in assets such as gold.
Commodity trading in India is done on the MCX (Multi Commodity Exchange of India). With trading allowed only in Commodity Futures, SAMCO clients can trade Commodities like Gold & Crude Oil.
Different Commodities have different cycles & many commodities are independent of Equity market sentiments. Unlike equity markets, commodity markets are not prone to manipulation!
There are two major types of participants who participate in Commodity Trading in India:
You can trade a wide variety of Commodities in India, including Agricultural Commodities, Metals & Energy products. Metals include precious metals like Gold & Silver, Energy Products include Crude Oil & Natural Gas while agricultural commodities include Cardamom, Cotton (Kapas) etc.
Most trades are cash settled. As such, there are options to get delivery of the commodities, but most traders prefer to settle in cash.
