Editorial Review - Book Description:


In addition to discussing financial and commodity futures and options, this book links them to the physical economy at large, a linkage which is particularly important when one is thinking of physical commodity markets. The book looks at not only the futures of derivative markets, but it also explores the physical markets and the underlying economy.
l Written by leading authors in the field of commodity markets
l Contains numerous up-to-date examples, case studies, and scenarios to assist in gaining an overall understanding
l Covers all aspects of commodity trading, including the inter-relationship between the different functions

Way too general..., July 6, 2010 Byjay - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: International Commodity Trading (Hardcover) This is not really about commodities, it is a basic and general discussion about futures and options markets. It looks like every other text that regurgitates basic concepts on futures and options without any real in depth analysis of the individual commodities. They section on physical markets is what I thought would differentiate this text from others..and it begins to... but ends after 20+ pages...a bit of a rip off.

A great book for a beginner, probably good for those already working in Commodities, September 2, 2009 By1000Books "1000Books" (NY,NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: International Commodity Trading (Hardcover) A fantastic book. I'm a bit of a beginner when it comes to commodities. I was surprised how much detail it went through. It's probably perfect for someone who does not work specifically in commodities but would like to learn about what is available in the way of infrastructure, information, and data.
