I'm not a trader, but I need to understand how commodities trading, futures and options, etc, work for my job (research position that sometimes involves research related to a commonly traded commodity). I've searched around the internet, and there's a lot of random explanations out there, but I haven't found anything that's done a great job of explaining how all of the different pieces fit together. Could you point me to a good book or online source that explains how the fundamentals of commodities trading?
