Pepperstone Soft Commodities Futures - Help!

Hello Guys,

First of all this is my first post on the site and excited to be apart of the FX community! I am very new to the Markets and have a lot to learn. I am finding it difficult to understand the ”Soft Commodities Futures“ in my Pepperstone Forex Account i.e.sugar, coffee, cotton Futures. Are these actually CFD’s and don’t expire like a futures contract?

There are also Spot Indices, Spot Metals, & Spot Oil. I believe the Indices are CFD’s and not to sure on the Metals and Oil? are these similar to currencies due to being against the dollar.

If someone could explain this to me (as a beginner) it would be much appreciated.
