Commodity prices are moving up and International Fund Investment did some research and found there are plenty of reasons why money will continue to flow into commodities. They learned money moves into raw materials with a weak dollar, lack of investment in supply infrastructure, booming demand from emerging economies and the fact that commodities are a hedge against falling equity markets.
For the individual investor, it hasn’t been easy to invest in commodities, but exchange traded funds help. This year a new ETF was launched, Deutsche Bank Commodity Tracking Fund (DBC), and this is just one of the options available to investors. DBC covers crude oil, heating oil, aluminum, gold, corn and wheat.
