Why isn't Tungsten metal traded in commodities?

They are banned not to be improved.

Tungsten, or Wolfram is a rare metal found naturally on Earth almost exclusively combined with other elements in chemical compounds rather than alone.

Probably because it is either not used in a lot of things or there is no real market for it.

Commodities are usually traded with derivatives such as futures contracts and option contracts. For these markets to function effectively the underlying commodity has to be highly liquid. I am not familiar enough to the tungsten market to be certain, but I suspect there is not enough liquidity in the market.

maybe it is quite rare. You need to find it in speciality markets and only in some countries.
