9781846688959: The Economist Guide to Commodities: Producers, Players and Prices; Markets, Consumers and Trends

A gold mine of information, insights and powerful tools to help you win big in today's commodities markets

The recent fortunes made by investors in rare earth metals and gold are just two shining examples of what an extremely profitable investment class commodities can be. But with radical swings in price volatility (think oil) and the vagaries of global geopolitics, commodities also can be one of the trickiest arenas in which to play. Written by the Senior Commodities Editor for The Economist Intelligence Unit, this book provides you with a comprehensive, highly practical look at the commodities markets. In addition to covering major trends and key changes in the markets, both past and present, it supplies you with proven tools for analyzing and taking full advantage of this ever-changing asset class.

  • Focuses specifically on natural commodities classes, such as natural resources and raw materials, both mineral and agricultural
  • Explores trends in the consumption and production of the commodities in question as well as the changing markets for those goods
  • Describes how commodities prices have changed historically and in recent years and how they are likely to change in future
  • Arms investors with an array valuable tools for analyzing market movements, timing trades and tracking and predicting price volatility

From the Back Cover :

We live our lives surrounded by products made, in part at least, using the world's natural resources – from the clothes we wear and the food we eat to the cars we drive, the houses we live in and the electronic devices we use. We depend on commodities, and commodity consumption increases as countries become more developed.

Steadily rising, although at times volatile, prices in the past decade have underlined the economic importance of commodities and our dependence on them. The price of gold has soared to new peaks as currencies have endured a crisis of confidence; demand from China has pushed metal prices up; instability in the Middle East and North Africa has had its effect on the oil price; and food prices have been increasing in parallel with worries about whether there is enough to feed the world.

We take commodities for granted but few people know much about them. Here, in one accessible volume, is a comprehensive guide to the economics of commodities and the main commodities themselves – where they are found, how they are processed, what they are used for, production, consumption and price trends, markets and trade, and the outlook for the future.

Description du livre Profile Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. État : New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. The price volatility of so many commodities over the past decade has underlined their economic importance and how dependent we are on them. The price of gold has soared to new peaks as currencies have endured a crisis of confidence; demand from China has pushed metal prices up; instability in the Middle East and North Africa has had its effect on the oil price; and food prices have been increasing in parallel with worries about whether there is enough to feed the world. Among the commodities it covers in details are: *Aluminium, lead, nickel, tin, zinc, steel, iron ore, gold, silver and platinum; *Oil, gas and coal; *Wheat, maize (corn), sugar, soybeans, coffee, cotton, cocoa, tea, rice, wool and rubber. The guide looks at trends in the consumption and production of, and markets for, these goods. It looks at how prices have changed over the years and how they are likely to change in future. It analyses where the power lies in terms of producers (resource rich countries and mining firms) and market players (commodity exchanges and trading firms like Glencore). It highlights the vulnerabilities of different societies and industries to the vagaries of commodity markets. For anyone who wants a concise guide and comprehensive overview of the commodities business and its impact on the world, it is invaluable. N° de réf. du libraire AA99781846688959
