Some commodities are priced in dollars. Oil is a good example. international trading of it is always done in dollars.
So if I live in Europe and agree to buy oil from Saudi Arabia the price will be in USD. If I buy future oil ie: agree to buy 100,000 barrels next December the price will be a set number of dollars. If the value of the dollar goes up, I lose out, if it goes down I gain.
