Commodity indices

Indices measuring the price and performance of physical commodities, often by the price of futures contracts for the commodities that are listed on commodity exchanges.

Commodity Indices

Indices that track the price of different types of commodities. A commodity index may track commodities directly, or indirectly by tracking futures contracts for certain commodities. For example, commodity indices may track energy products or currencies, or may tracks futures contracts in either of those. Commodity indices operate much like exchange-traded funds or mutual funds in day-to-day trading: investors may buy, sell, or short sell shares in commodity indices as if they were stocks. An advantage to trading commodity indices is that it gives investors access to commodity markets without needing to buy or accept delivery on the underlying commodities.
