While DJP has amassed close to $3 billion in assets and GCC currently has about $600 million in AUM, it seems clear to us that GCC still flies under the radar for some portfolio managers likely due to lower average daily trading volumes (177,873 shares per day on average for GCC versus 438,980 shares per day for DJP).

That said, since the underlying composition of both funds is tied to futures contracts for a very liquid and diversified basket of commodity products, trading volume should not be a concern when one wants to establish (or take off) a sizable position, as long as one is utilizing the proper trading techniques, ideally through a trading desk with ETF liquidity and execution expertise.
