A commodity is a basic good or raw material that is used in commerce. These individual commodities are usually the building blocks for more complex goods or services. For example, sugar and cocoa are both soft commodities that are the building blocks of a chocolate bar.

What separates commodities from other goods is the fact they are interchangeable and standardised, with their values set by the relevant commodity exchange. This means that no matter who produces a commodity, or where it is produced, two equivalent units of the commodity will, more or less, have the same quality and price.

Commodities are either extracted, grown or produced. There are four main categories that define the commodity market.

Energy Commodities: oil, gas, coal.

Agricultural Commodities: cocoa beans, coffee beans, sugar, wheat, ...

Metal Commodities: gold, silver, copper, platinium, iridium, palladium, base metals, rare metals...

Livestock Commoditie: This includes pork bellies, live cattle and general livestock, as well as meat commodities.
