Back when the FPA was new, there was one unique bit of Felix’s philosophy that really struck me. What caught my attention was that he talked about always donating 10% of his trading profits to a worthy cause.

A commodity refers to a good or a product that is produced to satisfy certain needs. Commodities are usually traded in the international markets and are known to be fungible; that is, they are considered to be equivalent regardless of where they are produced. For example, an ounce of gold produced in South Africa will be equivalent in value to an ounce of gold produced in Australia.
