Our Commodity Trading Expert Witnesses are veterans in the fields of finance and economics, with years of experience dealing with commodities exchanges and the trading of agricultural products and other raw materials.
They specialize in areas such as commodity swaps and commodity contracts, which include futures, options, and other financial derivatives.
A commodity trader will take positions based on forecasted economic trends or arbitrage opportunities in the commodity markets.
For example, oil and gold are very commonly traded commodities, along with commodities such as:
- Pork bellies
- Other precious metals
Contracts are usually hedged and actual delivery is rare.
Trading is impacted by supply and demand.
A limited supply of a commodity will effect a price increase, and an excess supply will result in a price decrease.
Commodity traders typically are not required to have a sophisticated understanding of the specific assets they are trading. Instead they will acquire knowledge and background from forward and future contracts.
