Educating those we are conducting business with us is an important aspect of the overall trading process. It saves time and rectifies adverse understandings, that otherwise may have become evident after the deal has been successfully closed. FTNX is a private and professional commodity trader, where discipline, uniformity of process and the rule of law (ROL) dictates our side of the trading process. Unfortunately, there are leaders from around the world who proclaim to abide by the rule of law, in one hand, only to shy away from such virtues, to favour other aspects to settle an argument such as trade sanctions and applying new tariffs; which in turn only hampers the ability of ‘everyday’ people their right to work and conduct business on a level playing field. If one country has a grievance with another, then it should be ‘the rule law’ and not sanctions that directs proceedings, the kind of proceedings that all parties have agreed to abide by the final decision of the ‘Umpire.’ This aspect of settling a dispute would ‘open up the world’ to the business of commerce, like no other time in history. FTNX  founder Davide Giovanni Papa as a leading trade expert is able to offer added services related to the nature of the core  business premise we apply. Where expert opinions are sought, we serve such based on actual experience gained, as encountered over a long period of time as well as the ROL.After 32 years in the education and trading in commodities FTNX CEO has gained a reputation for its expertise-worldwide . Our services are as follows, in where commodity trading remains as our  primary business application .  


This is our core business; the kind of business which meanders into other commercial applications of commerce and agency. When a deal becomes active, we seal a contract of purchase with a supplier holding stockpile or a large quantity of product in storage. We  attempt to buy such good at the lowest variable or best fixed price possible. We then spend many months vetting end buyers  who are able to buy such purchased goods from us as Seller. Our sell price serves all our operational expenses and gains, in where the majority of our purchase price, as obtained from our sourced suppliers is delivered  to our end buyers. We do not conduct business with intermediaries and will only conduct such business with disclosed suppliers in possession or goods, and end buyers taking  possession of goods purchased from  FTNX.
