What’s The Story Behind Commodity.com?

We make sense of commodities trading and alternative investments.

Commodity.com is your trusted source for information on all the major commodities, cryptocurrencies & alternative investments.

Starting life in 2012 as HowToTradeCommodities.com, we acquired the premium domain name Commodity.com in early 2017 giving us the foundation on which to build an industry-leading website.

The domain was acquired from George Kleinman and his Commodity Resource Corporation (CRC) which operated for 30 years as a commodity brokerage firm. Prior to founding CRC, George Kleinman was one of the top brokers at Merrill Lynch making their ‘Golden Circle’ before leaving to start his own operation. He is now an author and has published various books on commodities including Trading Commodities and Financial Futures: A Step-by-Step Guide to Mastering the Markets.

Following the amalgamation of HowToTradeCommodities.com and Commodity.com we set to work on a complete overhaul.

We now have detailed guides written by leading experts on all the major commodities and alternative investments as well as unbiased broker reviews, proprietary charts and in-depth country profiles.

We’ve been featured on leading publications across the web including:

And we’re building a formidable team of writers, designers, developers and editors.
