Commodities make up some of the world’s most important and widely traded physical goods. ‘Soft’ commodities are agricultural products, like coffee, cocoa, and soybean. There are also ‘hard’ commodities which are usually mined or extracted. When you trade agricultural commodities with Axi, you are not buying a physical asset such as beans of cocoa or coffee. Instead, you simply trade (buy or sell) on the price movement of the underlying asset through CFDs.
For coffee, the trading hours are Monday to Friday, 04:15 - 13:29(New York Time).
For cocoa, the trading hours are Monday to Friday, 04:15 - 13:29 (New York Time).
For soybean, the trading hours are Sunday to Friday, 19:00 - 13:19 (Chicago Time).
Just like other markets, supply-and-demand can heavily influence the direction of prices. When the demand prevails the ability to supply, prices rise. In contrast, when there's increased supply, the prices decrease. Factors that can affect supply-and-demand include, among others, weather volatility, geopolitical events, distribution costs, and even the strength of the US dollar.
Once you have opened an Axi trading account and are ready to trade agricultural commodities online, you can deposit funds via credit card, BPAY or bank transfer. You can also use Neteller, SKRILL/Moneybookers, China Union Pay, WeChat or Bankwire*.
