Concentrating on commodities
When most people think of investing, they usually think of buying stocks and bonds. But if an investor is looking for more diversification, investing in commodities may provide an answer. Raw materials such as oil and gas, or wheat and cattle, or even gold and silver, are commodities that generally have relatively low correlations to stock and bond investments. In addition, they have historically provided a hedge against inflation. An investor who devotes a certain percentage of their assets to these basic goods could be enhancing their overall portfolio in more ways than one.
The ETFs shown below invest almost exclusively in commodities.
