A commodity market is a market that trades in primary products and materials rather than manufactured products, such as cocoa, fruit, gold, oil, and sugar. Commodity markets can include trading in a physical or a virtual space using spot prices, forwards, futures, and options on futures. The origins of these market places can be traced back over 5,000 years, but how do they work now and how might they change in the future?
To discuss the Future of Commodity Markets I am joined on the podcast by Data Scientist Noah Healy who has a particular interest in combining mathematics with technology to produce game-changing solutions. We addressed these questions:
- How do commodity markets work now and what's wrong with them?
- How do we fix the issues?
- What beneficial changes are we would see?
- How might commodity markets have changed in 10 years’ time?
