    the stock exchanges went down a lot.
    And the winner for 2018 is chocolate.

    but their commodity funds WEAT and CORN
    are going down.
    Look at the relative performance in 2018. After VIX, the top performers
    are cocoa, wheat, oats, palladium and corn.

    Look at the futures

    https://finviz.com/futures.ashx

    Lean hogs and other livestock futures are doing fine.

    Searching for livestock ETF's gives three names:
    COW, UBC, LSTK

    My note: there are also livestock ETF's listed on other exchanges,
    like HOGS-London

    Commodities are back in 2019.
    ---------------------------------

    In 2019 commodities were the asset class with the best returns.

    Rising inflation is boosting commodities.

    Low interest rates are boosting commodities.

    Commodities are a good diversification from the overvalued shares.

    Investors plowed in 14.7 billion US $ in commodity funds in 2019.

    I have looked at Diversified Broad Commodities ETF'S .....
    and I liked what I saw. Eg:

    YTD (Year-To-Date) Performance:

    GSG----12.7 %
    PDBC----8.3 %
    DBC-----7.8 %

    There are other commodity ETF's like that, but thinly traded.

    Remark though that they are volatile.

    Corn is up 4 % and wheat is up about 3 %.
    Not bad for one day.

    It looks like it is time for commodities, not equities.

    Corn crop is bad this year. Corn price is going to go up.

    The commodity fund CORN is going to soar.
