Riassunto: A gold mine of information, insights and powerful tools to help you win big in today's commodities markets

The recent fortunes made by investors in rare earth metals and gold are just two shining examples of what an extremely profitable investment class commodities can be. But with radical swings in price volatility (think oil) and the vagaries of global geopolitics, commodities also can be one of the trickiest arenas in which to play. Written by the Senior Commodities Editor for The Economist Intelligence Unit, this book provides you with a comprehensive, highly practical look at the commodities markets. In addition to covering major trends and key changes in the markets, both past and present, it supplies you with proven tools for analyzing and taking full advantage of this ever-changing asset class.

  • Focuses specifically on natural commodities classes, such as natural resources and raw materials, both mineral and agricultural
  • Explores trends in the consumption and production of the commodities in question as well as the changing markets for those goods
  • Describes how commodities prices have changed historically and in recent years and how they are likely to change in future
  • Arms investors with an array valuable tools for analyzing market movements, timing trades and tracking and predicting price volatility

Dal retro di copertina:

We live our lives surrounded by products made, in part at least, using the world's natural resources – from the clothes we wear and the food we eat to the cars we drive, the houses we live in and the electronic devices we use. We depend on commodities, and commodity consumption increases as countries become more developed.

Steadily rising, although at times volatile, prices in the past decade have underlined the economic importance of commodities and our dependence on them. The price of gold has soared to new peaks as currencies have endured a crisis of confidence; demand from China has pushed metal prices up; instability in the Middle East and North Africa has had its effect on the oil price; and food prices have been increasing in parallel with worries about whether there is enough to feed the world.

We take commodities for granted but few people know much about them. Here, in one accessible volume, is a comprehensive guide to the economics of commodities and the main commodities themselves – where they are found, how they are processed, what they are used for, production, consumption and price trends, markets and trade, and the outlook for the future.
