World's Most Traded Commodities

Did You Know?-- the Top Ten Most Traded Commodities

DID YOU KNOW ... that coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the whole world, second only to crude oil.

Cultivated in over 70 countries by thousands of independent farmers, coffee is one of the oldest commodities in the world.

How about this factoid – “It is estimated that 1.6 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide PER DAY!” http://bit.ly/1695k8n

So you are probably wondering what else is on the list.  (It might surprise you.)

  1. OIL
  2. COFFEE
  3. NATURAL GAS
  4. GOLD
  5. WHEAT
  6. COTTON
  7. SUGAR
  8. SILVER
  9. COPPER

Take a look around your house.  Which of these do you use the most each day?  It probably isn’t gold, but if it is, give us a call.  We’ll help you carry it.

We hope you enjoyed our "DID YOU KNOW" insight for the week!
