Commodities are basic goods used in commerce and are most often used as inputs in the production of other semi-finished or finished materials. They are very important products in our lives today and constitute non-negligible sources of income for many countries. This book serves as a guide to the marketing of these goods and provides scholars and commodity market participants with useful concepts, tools and guidelines to better organize and operate commodities exchanges.

Issouf Soumaré explains in detail commodities exchanges, from conceptualization of the exchange to its operationalization. He describes the architecture of a typical commodities exchange, looking at its trading and clearing functions, the warehouse receipt system and the regulatory framework. The book also presents practices of commodities exchanges around the world and discusses commodity products and instruments traded on these exchanges, their pricing and usage. This book is very useful and timely, as many emerging countries are setting up commodities exchanges.

Academics interested in commodities and their marketing as well as industry professionals such as commodity traders, commodity exporters, risk managers, clearing officers, market makers, commodity producers, agricultural cooperatives, commodity processors, bankers, warehouse operators, and regulators will find this a useful reference.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is an important and timely book. Many developing countries are establishing commodity exchanges and there are high hopes on using these market structures to improve the efficiency of the agricultural markets. This book provides a very comprehensive view of the question of commodity markets – across the world and across time. It is a valuable addition to the literature and policy makers, academics and students will discover a wealth of knowledge and information in this great book.’
