What types of exchanges are there?
Distinguish between commodity exchanges, stock exchanges and labor exchanges.

Commodity exchanges operate on the markets for individual goods. Here, transactions for the sale of goods are carried out on the basis of preliminary inspection and according to samples and standards. By their nature, exchange transactions are of two types: 1) spot transactions are transactions for real goods. They provide guarantees for the sale of the product that is already in stock; 2) forward transactions, in which not the goods themselves are sold (they have not even been produced), but the right to receive them. A type of forward transactions are futures transactions. These are deals for the commodity of the future. However, in this transaction, the partners do not expect to transfer the goods being sold to each other. The purpose of a futures transaction is to obtain the difference in price for the period between the conclusion of the contract and its execution. On modern commodity futures exchanges, only 1-2% of transactions are concluded with the delivery of real goods. It is not the goods themselves, as such, that are sold and bought, but contracts for their supply. In conditions of constant fluctuations in supply and demand, prices on the commodity exchange can change in a matter of minutes. By setting so-called forward prices, the commodity exchange provides producers and consumers with minimal price risk.

In the former USSR, commodity exchanges developed under the conditions of the NEP. They received the greatest development in 1926. 8514 commercial and industrial enterprises and individuals were members of 114 exchanges. Subsequently, the course of rigid centralization in management led to their complete liquidation. By 1930, they had ceased to exist.
