Try to look into this link-" http://www.fixprotocol.org/functionality". I don't find comodities mentioned anywhere up till Fix 5.0

Hi Mahendra,

When there is talk of Commodities Trading, it about Futures and Options. Refer investopedia definition at

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/commodity.asp

[quote from investopedia]

2. The sale and purchase of commodities is usually carried out through futures contracts on exchanges that standardize the quantity and minimum quality of the commodity being traded. For example, the Chicago Board of Trade stipulates that one wheat contract is for 5,000 bushels and also states what grades of wheat (e.g. No. 2 Northern Spring) can be used to satisfy the contract.

A very goog article explaining origin / history of commodities trading is available at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodity_markets

For FIX protocol support for Futures and Options refer

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to post any more questions you have.

Mahesh,
Those were some really knowledgeable links that you've given. Can you provide some FIX logs for commodity futures starting from New order to order ack and then fill. That would really help. We already have logs w.r.t. futures and options trading pertaining to securities and Index. Just wanted to know how is it different from commodities.

Regards,
Sunil
