Trading of basic commodities, like sugar, cocoa, cotton and coffee represents one of humanity’s oldest commercial activities. Nearly every community throughout history developed some sort of central marketplace where people could meet and trade necessities such as foods, fibers and other basic commodities.
Over time, more participants entered the physical (cash) market. This lengthening of the marketing chain directly affected the value (price) of each commodity. Each participant in the chain added value to the commodity (processed, transported, stored, refined, manufactured, etc.) and this affected the price. A sudden change in the supply/demand equation can squeeze anyone in the chain needing to acquire a commodity that suddenly jumps in value or required to hold a commodity that decreases in value. Virtually all commodities purchased, like meats, grains, oils, dairy, produce, and softs, have varying amounts of price volatility associated with them.
To most companies this volatility can easily be the difference between a successful operation and declining profits. Due to increasing competition in the global marketplace and continues integration within the supply chain there is a need for a software solution that helps trading organizations to be in control.
