Recently, we have witnessed a lot of developments and innovations in financial and commodity markets. Financial markets became more linked to commodity markets, as investors started to look for new investment opportunities during the period of stagnation at financial markets. This had a significant impact on commodity prices, including agro-commodities. Levels and dynamics of agro-commodity prices have important welfare and policy implications. They impact producers’ income and consumers’ purchasing power. The aim of the thesis will be to analyse the link between financial markets and commodity markets. Recent financial time series analysis will be used to study the link between financial markets and commodity markets.
