Commodity Trading History
Investing and trading in commodities is an ancient process believed to have originated as far back as 4000 B.C. The Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), established in 1848, is the oldest commodity exchange. In 1919, the Chicago Butter and Egg Board changed its name to The Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the CME Clearing House was created.
The CBOT and the CME merged in 2007 to become a single entity, the CME Group, Inc.

Contracts for Difference (CFD’s)
A contract for difference, commonly referred to as a CFD, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. Explained in another manner, CFD’s (Contracts for Difference) are derivative products which open up access to trading indices, commodities, foreign currencies without you ever having to actually own the underlying instrument.
