About Commodities

Commodities are traded in units:

  • Oil is traded in barrels (bbl)
  • Wheat is traded in bushels (bu)
  • Coffee is traded in pounds (lb)

All units are set to a standardized quantity known as a "lot". A lot represents the minimum quantity which can be traded in any given instrument.
