History of Commodities

History tells us that the commodity market does not have its roots in North America more than 150 years ago. Before this the common trend of the North American farmers was that they would bring their crops to market in intention to earn some profits by selling them. But the lack of proper demand and supply indication, often they would bring the exceeds quantity than the requirement of the market. This would result in rotting un-purchased corps in the streets of the market. Like wise, when it was not the coffee season, the items that use coffee as an important ingredient, became very expensive. The only reason behind was lack of supply - means it was not the coffee season and corp was no longer available.

Then the gradual improvements in this system eventually created a central place for North American farmers, shortly after establishing the grain markets in mid-19th century, to sell their corps (known as commodities). This central place was available to control the commodities for both immediate delivery and future delivery. This concept was very much welcomed by farmers because it eventually saved them losing their corps. It also helped them stabilizing prices and supply of their commodities in the off-season.

With the popularity of this concept of the commodity market, the need of standardising the terms of every commodity contract arose in this trading market. This need made futures contracts one of the popular methods of investments among traders.
