    Default Commodity funds

    Commodities are in an upswing. You can buy them on commodity exchanges.
    You can also buy them as commodity ETF's.

    Here you have a list:

    NIB-deals in cocoa. It is doing fine.

    I like GRN (carbon credits) and UBM (industrial metals).

    Commodities outperform during periods of rising rates.

    Presently you can add supply constraints:

    There are lots of agricultural ETF's like DBA, RJA, GRU, WEAT, CORN etc doing
    just fine.

    Look at the futures. Wheat is in uptrend.

    Then look for a wheat ETF. I found WEAT...and it is doing fine:

    Commodities are resilient. They were for 30 years in uptrend and
    the last 7 years in downtrend.

    Now commodities are testing a breakout of the downtrend.

    I don't know much, but I happen to agree with this synopsis.

    I recently rebalanced a portion of my 401k into a commodity fund.

    Fingers crossed.

    I posted before about an ETF investing in cocoa: NIB .

    Today it went up 4.68 %......not bad for a day when
    the stock exchanges went down a lot.
