Commodity markets, as a rule, show active dynamics. Here, prices can be affected by various factors, such as production volumes, global economic changes and technological advances

Crude oil

Crude oil is one of the most traded raw materials, offering a profit regardless of market conditions. Its price depends on world production, as well as the state of the world economy, and sharply rising and falling trends can create the right conditions. Swissquote offers forward contracts for British crude (Brent) and US crude (WTI)

Natural gas (Coming soon)

Natural gas is the only fuel that is completely burned underground during use. Natural gas will be a real alternative to other energy sources in the future due to technological improvements. It is mainly used for heating. Its price changes periodically throughout the year (the peak of demand is in the winter and summer months) and is prone to weather conditions

Copper (Coming soon)

Due to its high conductivity and versatility, copper is a very important raw material. It is mainly used in the manufacture of electrical networks, production materials and industrial supplies. Demand for copper in developing countries will continue to grow as a key component of urban modernization, although natural copper reserves are limited and could be depleted in 25 years.
