Hong Kong is the 5th largest export economy in the world and enjoys a positive trade balance of $62.3 billion HKD after deducting annual imports of $3.90 trillion HKD from its export total of $3.96 trillion HKD. 

Commodities, whether they are in the form of food, metals or energy, are an important part of everyday life. Overall, commodities were on a mostly sound footing in the first half of 2019. 

The S&P GSCI returned more than 13% as of June 30, one of the best first six months in recent memory. The S&P GSCI is a composite index of commodities that measures the performance of the commodity market. The index made up of 24 exchange-traded futures contracts covering physical commodities spans five sectors. The sectors in 2019 are energy, industrial metals, precious metals, agriculture, and livestock. Energy was the largest sector at 62.63% of the index. Agriculture had a 15.41% share, while livestock came in at 6.66%. Industrial metals accounted for 11.16% of the GSCI, and precious metals were 4.14%. In a repeat of last year, crude oil was the top performing commodity, up 28.76% as of June 30. 

Demand for commodity trading specialists is increasing, with employment for all commodities, securities, and financial services traders and sales agents expected to grow by ten percent between 2014 and 2024.
