About this book


This book offers practical knowledge, analysis, trading techniques and methodologies required for the management of key international commodities. The author explores each aspect of commodity trading in detail and helps the reader to implement effective techniques to build a strong portfolio. Early chapters set the current scene of commodity trading markets before going on to discuss the fundamental instruments and tools used in navigating commodity markets. The author provides detailed, empirical case studies of traded natural resources in order to explicate the financial instruments that enable professionals both to invest and to trade them successfully. Later chapters investigate the psychology and behavioural influences behind optimal market trading, in which the author encourages the reader to understand and combat the obstacles that prevent them from reaching their full trading potential.
