Commodity markets are complex, and so is commodities law. The video provides an academic analysis of commodity markets and is specifically aimed at beginners and people who don’t have a background on the subject.
One of the video’s first graphics is a brief list of the important commodities in the United States and elsewhere, including ethanol, wheat, and propane. Of course, the video’s expert makes it clear that this is not a complete list.
Viewers are then introduced to an app that is used in trading, which is used to track different commodities and how they’re being valued on the market. From there, people will learn more about how to analyze the market itself.
The video then includes a discussion of commodity prices and how those prices can change. People can learn about speculators and the other investors that will affect the value of different commodities, which is the focus of most of the video’s second half.
Most people are familiar with commodities and the stock market, but they haven’t learned about how it all works. It’s a complicated subject, which the video’s expert makes clear. After seeing and listening to this 10-minute video, audience members should be much more informed on these topics.
