Commodity funds for retail investors

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

At the moment, I'm about half-way through with my half-hour Newsletter Editor Masterclass Workshop at the Hard Assets Investment Conference in Las Vegas, this post being set to automagically appear at the designated time without operator assistance as my clammy fingers are currently wrapped around one of those remote control thingies for the computer/projector in the back of the room.

Below is the updated table of commodity mutual funds, ETFs and ETNs from the back of the paper titled, Buy the Stocks Or, Buy the Commodities? (.pdf), the subject of the presentation.

A whopping 76 commodity offerings are now available to retail investors, up by about two dozen since this list was last updated back in May.
IMAGE NAMELook at the trading volume of those new leveraged funds - DTO (double short oil), DGP (double long gold), and DGP (double short gold). Traders just love those things.

Hi Tim,

In your chart, DYY should be the double long ETN, DEE the double short, I think.

Thanks - I'll have a look at that.
