How Commodities Trading Works

By Laura La Bella

This book introduces reader to the fascinating, bustling, wheeling-dealing world of commodities trading, revealing the amazing journey that ends with juice in our glass, bread on our tables, and gas in our tanks--and money in the pockets of savvy traders. A history of commodity trading relates the enthralling story of the rise of the Chicago stockyards, the city's earliest commodity markets, and the global spread of such increasingly high-tech trading centers. The mechanisms of the markets and time-honored trading strategies are also outlined. The book includes "Myths & Facts" and "10 Great Questions to Ask a Financial Adviser."

Book Review: How Commodities Trading Works
"This book very effectively explains commodities and how trading really works. It is written in an easy to understand form so students will be able to understand the content...Informative and fun at the same time. I would recommend this for any junior high and high school library. The photographs make the written information come to life."
--Leann Spears, Era High School
