iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN (SGG) -0.4%
Sugar has risen steeply throughout the week as supply concerns are met with increasing demand. On Friday, however, the sweetener took a slight break from its ascension. A day like Friday highlights the stable nature of diversified agriculture products such as the PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (DBA). DBA is trading flat today.
Conservative investors with a desire for agriculture futures exposure should pick DBA over a single commodity fund.
