Hard Commodity


A hard commodity is loosely defined as any natural resources that must be mined or extracted. This includes precious metals and certain energy resources. Hard commodities are common underlying assets for futures contracts. This categorization is useful for investors because these commodities are normally affected by the same macro events. Gold, silver, and oil are some of the most commonly traded hard commodities.
