According to Article 28 of the Chambers, Commodity Exchanges and Union law numbered 5174. “ The Commodity Exchanges are the associations with public corporation establishment and they are established to handle the purchase and sales of the goods quoted in the commodity exchange market and to determine, register and declare the prices of those goods in the market.”
When the name “Exchange Market” is mentioned, it is thought that it is the Stock - Exchanges where the bonds are exchanged. However, there are differences between the Commodity Exchange Market and the Stock - Exchanges. The fundamental difference between the two is that the Commodity Exchange Market deals with agricultural goods. The Commodity Exchanges, which are bound to judicial procedures, have financial and administrative autonomy. In other words, they are such associations that they generate their own resources and they also use those resources as well as support public establishments with those resources. In addition, they carry out these procedures without creating any financial burden for the government. Morever, these associations are administered by the committees elected from their own members. This feature enables them to pursue their indispensable liberal democratic qualities. The Commodity Exchanges are also one of the important components of the market economy as the prices of agricultural goods in those markets are determined according to the demand-supply principles.
