It’s been a tumultuous decade for the commodities markets. Prices have fallen and fallen for years due to good global crops, weak demand for precious metals due to Chinese economic concerns, lower crude oil supplies due to overproduction, and of course the recent pandemic. However, over the last few months, global weather issues for grains, a weaker dollar, and rebound in global economies (outside of Brazil, which is still struggling) has resulted in a very impressive rally in everything from silver and copper to cotton, crude oil, corn, and soybeans.
There is a smart way to invest in the commodity sector using ETFs and conservative option strategies. This is what Jim Roemer’s Weather Wealth newsletter offers even the most novice commodity investor–a conservative way to invest in a sector that is red hot.
One commmodity index which has out performed all of them is called the United States Commodity Index Fund (USCI)
This index looks at 27 different commodity markets and which ones are trending technically.
USCI becomes a better way to track the commodity markets. While the benchmark Bloomberg Commodity Index has lost money since 1990, this “smart” index is up more than 1,100%.
USCI recently hit a new 52-week high last week. Check out the chart.
USCI has been in a steady uptrend since bottoming in March 2020. And it just broke out to new highs. That makes it one of the last markets to fully recover from the pandemic.
