Many forex & CFD brokers that offer stock trading, also offer trading in soft commodities and many other types of commodities. With the help of CFDs, it is thus possible to get access to this exotic market that used to be dominated by large and professional players trading directly in the futures market. Today, however, anyone can join and enjoy the competitive spreads and high leverage that is available from the best CFD brokers.
Sometimes also called agricultural commodities, soft commodities is the term used for commodities that are either raised or grown on a farm. This obviously includes most commodities that are used for food, including things like corn, sugar, coffee, and cocoa, but also non-food commodities like cotton.
