A commodity trading system having a centralized computer and data base. Each commodity, such as a bale of cotton, is represented in the data base as a file having all the information unique to such bale, including a title flag. The title flag field of the file indicates whether the title to the cotton bale is carried by way of a card-type warehouse receipt, or electronically. The electronic representation of title eliminates the transferral of documentary type title which is traditionally mailed to various locations to follow the trading transactions.
