Commodities markets, both historically and in modern times, have had tremendous economic impact on nations and people. The impact of commodity markets throughout history is still not fully known, but although the first recorded instance of futures trading occurred with rice in 17th Century Japan, it has been suggested that rice futures may have been traded in China as long ago as 6,000 years.
Energy commodities such as crude are closely watched by countries, corporations and consumers alike.
Unusual disruptions caused by weather or natural disasters can not only be an impetus for price volatility, but can also cause regional food shortages.
