Commodity ETFs in Bull Market for First Time in Four Years

The broad commodity ETFs include heavy energy tilts. For example, DBC includes about 50% and DJP has 30%.

Meanwhile, gold and silver are among the best performers this year over global economic concerns and a pullback in the U.S. dollar that supported demand for precious metals as a better store of value.

Nevertheless, observers remain skeptical of the turn in the commodities market.

“Commodities have outperformed, that’s the reality,” Dominic Schnider, head of commodities and Asia-Pacific foreign exchange of the wealth-management unit at UBS Group AG, told Bloomberg. “I still think prices can fall in the short run, they should find a bottom during summer. I think prices of commodities in general, not so much base metals but predominantly energy, will come off again.”
