    About Lesson

    Commodities are bought and sold on special exchanges in contracts
    Contract sizes vary depending on the type of commodity traded, but tend to be very large
    However, smaller investors can usually buy and sell commodity futures using leverage
    Commodity prices are often very volatile and are affected by supply and demand, the weather, geopolitical factors and the value of the US dollar
