COMMODITY EXCHANGE: A financial market that trades the ownership of various commodities, such as wheat, corn, cotton, sugar, crude oil, natural gas, gold, silver, and aluminum. The two biggest commodity exchanges in good old U. S. of A. are the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Unlike, let's say a grocery store where commodities physically trade hands, commodity exchanges trade only legal ownership. This is much like a stock market, which trades the ownership of a corporation, but leaves the factory at home. Commodity markets offer two basic sorts of trading -- spot (immediate delivery of a commodity) and futures (delivery of a commodity at a future date).

Open market operations are the most important of the three monetary policy tools that the Fed can use, in principle, to control the money supply. The other two are the discount rate and reserve requirements.

A Somewhat Defective Look At PRODUCT SAFETY

WAIT! STOP! My shoe's untied! And my blasted shoestring is tangled! Fortunately I have my handy OmniStraight shoestring straightener, a product developed by a team of former NASA scientists that's designed to straighten and untangle even the most convoluted shoestrings. OOPS! You might want to continue your pedestrian journey without me. It seems as though my handy OmniStraight shoestring straightener has inadvertently dissected my shoestring, mangled the upper half of my jogging shoe, and introduced several gashes to the top of my foot. As I faint face-first onto the sidewalk from the loss of blood, you can consider some of the ins and outs of my predicament.
