Commodities Online is a private company in the commodities wholesaling business. Commodities Online negotiates purchase contracts with producers of commodities, simultaneously negotiating sales contracts with distributors of those commodities. These contracts are referred to as "pre-sold" or "buy/sell" commodities contracts.
Commodities Online will at times, negotiate joint venture agreements with producers who already have a buyer secured, but need funding for production. These joint venture agreements are functionally equivalent to pre-sold contracts.
For the investor wanting to participate in these opportunities, Commodities Online offers a confidential subscription service through its Web site allowing investors to purchase positions in the contracts that have been negotiated.
Participation in these contracts is self-directed by the subscriber and would include commodities such as seafood, sugar, and metal ores. As the subscriber base grows, the variety of physical commodities contracts will expand.
Participating in pre sold physical commodities contracts allows investors the opportunity to earn extremely attractive risk-adjusted returns without having to commit to the relatively substantial capital that is usually required.
Commodities Online shares in the profits of the commodities contracts as described in the Master Subscription Agreement and never charges commissions or brokers fees. In this way, the interests of the investors and Commodities Online are aligned: If the investors do not profit from a particular commodities contract, then neither does Commodities Online.
Commodities Online has established relationships with both producers and buyers, these relationships are key to its business model.
Commodities Online will be looking to expand its network of producers and buyers, particularly producers in South Africa seeking new business and export relationships as the business grows.
Commodities Online was created to give the individual investor access to the incredible opportunities in the world of pre sold physical commodities.
