Agricultural products make up for the remaining piece of the pie. Hong Kong competes with the likes of London, Geneva, Zurich, New York, Paris and Singapore as a leading market for commodity trading.
Commodity traders buy and sell orders from customers through a firm's trading department and may provide investment advising services. They must typically keep a keen eye on the market in relation to product and investment pricing, trends and demand. Some traders receive purchase and selling instructions, meeting with other commodities traders to negotiate transactions.
