When it comes to investing money, one of the first destinations that you think about is the stock market, but there are other markets in which you can invest: the commodities or raw materials markets. The stock market of raw materials or commodities are markets in which products such as coffee, natural gas, oil, cocoa, corn, gold, etc. are bought and sold. Each product has its own market made up of buyers and sellers. Products are traded on commodity exchanges through futures contracts.
