There are 2 basic ways to get this. The first is to play the game "properly" and buy & sell cargo as you travel round the different star systems.

The second and far quicker way is to buy goods (fill your cargo hold) then sell them straight back to the commodity market you just bought them from. This does have a slight drawback that you generally lose money each time as the buy price is usually higher than the sell price. The smallest loss is usually buying & selling hydrogen fuel, biowaste or scrap which can lose you as little as 3CR a time so 30,000 credits to earn this achievement. I did this in a system called HIP110245 at Fox Survey. Here you can buy biowaste for 14CR and sell it back to them for 11CR.

This is a pretty tedious and boring way of grinding this achievement out but it does work if you're in a hurry. The bigger your cargo hold the less transactions you'll have to make so it's probably worth waiting until you've upgraded to a larger spaceship. This solution can also be used for the "Consumer" achievement.
