One of the oldest markets in the history of the world, trading commodities used to mean just livestock and grain—but now it’s grown to include gas and electricity. With oil becoming the most traded commodity in 2022, you’d think that the business of trading has changed tremendously. However, looking at the past reveals some similarities we still see in the present (and will continue to see into the future).
While the nature of trading may feel much the same, the biggest changes have evolved thanks to the rise of regulators—like the FERC and CFTC—who have amped up regulations monitoring trading firms’ behavior. Along this theme, a recent billion-dollar fine put all firms on notice: corporate wrongdoing and non-compliance are not going to be tolerated.
