Commodity Research Bureau

An organization that produces an index that tracks the price movements of 17 commodities. The CRB index does not follow any one commodity sector, but rather the general direction of commodities overall. The CRB index is watched by both commodity and bond investors because the prices of commodities and bonds tend to move in opposite directions due to inflation.
