Futures Exchanges are markets where financial institutions and individuals can trade a wide variety of commodities.
The world’s major exchanges for trading commodities are mainly located in the United States:
- Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) – a commodity futures exchange based in Chicago and operated by CME.
- Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) – an exchange based in Atlanta, focused on energy commodities.
- New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) – an exchange located in New York City and operated by CME.
When trading Forex CFDs, you are essentially speculating on the price changes in their exchange rate. For example, in the EUR/USD pair the value of one Euro (EUR) is determined in comparison to the US dollar (USD), and in the GBP/JPY pair the value of one British pound sterling (GBP) is quoted against the Japanese yen (JPY).
If you think the exchange rate will rise you can open a ‘Buy’ position. Conversely, if you think the exchange rate will fall you can open a ‘Sell’ position.

The most common way for trading commodities is to buy or sell a futures contract. The price of a commodity futures contract is standardised, meaning the underlying instrument’s quantity (pound, ounce, barrel, etc) is predetermined and appears the same for all market providers.
A futures contract also obligates the holder to buy or sell a commodity at a predetermined price on a delivery date in the future.
In CFD trading, once a commodity futures contract expires, a trader can either close the trade and open a new trade, or alternatively, allow the contract to roll over to the next month (if possible).
Among the factors that might influence Forex rates are the terms of trade, political relations and overall economic performance between the two countries or economic regions. This also includes their economic stability (for example GDP growth rate), interest and inflation rates, production of goods and services, and balance of payments.
