A List of Commodities You Can Invest In

As part of the Financial Expert guide on ‘How to Invest In Commodities‘, what follows is an up-to-date list of the different types of commodities that are traded on the main mercentile exchanges such as NYMEX and the London Metal Exchange. Futures and Options contracts can be taken out for any of the commodities listed below. For retail investors looking to invest through a broker, I should let you know that the Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) market has not matured to the point where a retail investor can buy separate ETFs that specialise in every single of the listed commodities, (although some specialist ETFs do exist for popular metals and fossil fuels.) So if the farmer in you was dreaming of a 100% live cattle portfolio you may have to wait a little longer!
