Commodity markets deal in raw or semiraw materials that are amenable to grading and that can be stored for considerable periods without deterioration.
Commodity markets developed to their present form in the 19th century, when industrial growth facilitated trading in large, standardized quantities of raw materials. Most markets encompass trading in commodity futures—that is, trading for delivery several months ahead. Major commodity markets exist in Chicago, Tokyo, London, and elsewhere. Although specialized markets exist, such as that for silkworm cocoons in Tokyo, most trade relates to cereals and metals. Softs is a term used for most materials other than metals.

In economics, a term often used to denote any product, including services. Equally, a good is often distinguished from a service, as in “goods and services”. The opposite of a normal good, a product for which demand increases as a person’s income increases, is an inferior good, a product for which demand decreases as income increases. A free good is one which an individual or organization can consume in infinite quantities at no cost, like the air we breathe. However, most goods are economic goods, which are scarce in supply and therefore have an opportunity cost. In a free market, economic goods are allocated through prices.
