Shop Around for Commodity Funds
The other day I wrote about a new family of exchange-traded notes from a company called Elements that use indices created by legendary commodities investor Jimmy Rogers.
But anyone looking to get exposure to this asset class has many new exchange-traded products to choose from, so you should not buy from one provider without at least looking at the others.
In that article I made a reference to one of several new commodity iPath ETNs from Barclays Global, a unit of Barclays PLC (BCS) that also sponsors the iShares brand of exchange-traded funds. Barclays has recently expanded its lineup of commodities products in a meaningful way, adding several products that track narrower sectors of the market:
- iPath DJ AIG Agriculture Total Return Sub Index (JJA)
- iPath DJ AIG Copper Total Return Sub Index (JJC)
- iPath DJ AIG Grains Total Return Sub Index (JJG)
- iPath DJ AIG Energy Total Return Sub Index (JJE)
- iPath DJ AIG Industrial Metals Total Return Sub Index (JJM)
- iPath DJ AIG Livestock Total Return Sub Index (COW)
- iPath DJ AIG Natural Gas Total Return Sub Index (GAZ)
- iPath DJ AIG Nickel Total Return Sub Index (JJN)
