Futures contracts are the oldest way of investing in commodities. Futures are secured by physical assets.Commodity markets can include physical trading and derivatives trading using spot prices, forwards, futures, and options on futures. Farmers have used a simple form of derivative trading in the commodity market for centuries for price risk management.
