Soft commodities are a subset of commodities that include agricultural products or primary products that are grown rather than mined. These include items like wheat, soybeans, corn, coffee, cocoa, sugar, cotton, and more. Soft commodity trading allows investors to speculate on the price movements of these agricultural products without physically owning them. One popular way to trade soft commodities is through Contracts for Difference (CFDs).
Contracts for Difference (CFDs) are financial derivatives that enable traders to speculate on the price movements of an underlying asset without owning the asset itself. CFD trading is done through a contract between the trader and the broker, and it allows traders to profit from both rising and falling markets.
