Futures & Options

Commodities are the basic building blocks of the global economy and an essential aspect of living dependency. Commodity futures are derivative products of natural resources traded on dedicated futures exchanges globally.

In the last two decades, financial headlines witnessed the commodities super cycle of the rise and fall in prices of many commodity classes - agricultural, base, precious metals and energy products. To a good extent, these were primarily driven by emerging markets of the BRICs; in particular, China. Its insatiable appetite for economic expansion and market liberalization has placed Asia at the forefront. Over the years, the trading of physical commodities and its derivatives in Asia has increased multi-folds. It has now become a true market for futures traders to diversify their portfolio risk. Many futures contracts in Asia have volumes that rival or exceed established western markets.
