Commodity ETFs

The commodity ETFs usually follow the price of an underlying commodity or a group of commodities that comprise an index. Commodities are basic goods used in commerce (e.g. food, grains or metals) which could be interchangeable with other products of the same type. Commodities are also traded on a commodity exchange. There are many types of commodities such as energy, agriculture or foreign currencies. Investing in commodities gives investors the possibility to derive benefits from portfolio diversification. Commodity ETFs include actual stocks or futures and derivative contracts. There are ETFs that track the performance of one particular commodity and focus only on the instruments concerning it (e.g. crude oil or platinum) or buy a variety of commodities. Before investing in commodity ETFs investor should conduct a detailed research and analysis of the commodity market. Investing in commodities via Exchange Traded Funds is associated with low commissions and management fees.
