VIEW PROFILE
Financial Globalisation is the in thing these days which includes financial instrument market and commodities market. The term globalisation means cross-border trade in real goods and services, in turn it has led to development of emerging economies and ever increasing appetite of developed economies.

So is financial globalisation good???

It sure sounds like finance is great but it‘s proven that a growing financial system is great for a while - until it isn‘t. For instance by encouraging borrowing, the financial system encourages an excessive amount of residential construction in some locations. The results - vacant car garages - do not suggest a more effectual use of capital. Financial development can create brittleness. When credit extension goes in reverse gear, or even if it just stops, it can induce economic instability and crises. Bankruptcies, credit crunches, bank failures and depressed spending are now the all too familiar landmarks of the bust that follows a credit-induced boom.

EU gets flu (financial crisis) global economies go running for doctor’s prescription (IMF).

So does it mean that financial globalisation is bad???

Financial globalisation might only be good up to a point. It is about making it extraneous to investors and borrowers where the services and the funds they draw on are actually located. But the spillovers during the financial crisis, when one country‘s troubles spread to others, raise the question: does it matter where the funds are coming from? That is, how should we ponder about cross-border flows and financial specialisation? Policy makers (economist) are trained to think that speculation is great. Wherein, if one exploits comparative advantage it benefits everyone. With this debate we start the paper on "Edible Oils & Oilseeds - Globalised Commodities Coverage".

The basic purpose of the paper is to review how commodity markets gets impacted by global news and data flow besides its own fundamentals as they are not localised anymore. It starts with reviewing health of global economy and its outlook going forward. Influence of global growth on key commodities and its linkages, followed by a review of Edible Oils & Oilseeds, its correlated complexities and the way forward. Finally it‘s been concluded by price outlook (highs & lows) for 2013 CPO, Soybean, Soy oil and Brent Crude.
