Commodity Research Bureau Index

Commodity Research Bureau Index

An index that tracks the price movements of commodities. The CRB does not follow any one commodity sector but rather the overall direction of commodities generally. The CRB is watched by both commodity and bond investors because the prices of commodities and bonds tend to move in opposite directions due to inflation.
