Most traders do not wish to take delivery of the traded commodities; rather, they seek to make money during the change in the market prices. Products are sold when the prices rise and bought at declining prices. For this, it is necessary to be aware of the movement in the market, and the traders benefit to a large extent under the expert guidance of these brokers. They provide the daily market news, fundamental and technical research and analysis, and advice for future trading sessions.
Full-service commodity brokers help the traders in achieving financial objectives, identifying problem areas, cash flow and portfolio management, tax planning, and insurance review. They provide assistance in order placement, execution, selling stocks, and more, depending on the client’s trading requirements. Their charges are generally competitive and depend largely on the extent of trading assistance provided. Some experienced brokers are expensive and are known to charge $150 as commission. The financial compensation for the services of these brokers depends exclusively on the extent of the trade indulged in and not on the performance of the portfolio. Sometimes this results in churning or advice to trade in the absence of a need.
