Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) 8.3%
Corn prices are surging higher on supply concerns, helping CORN undo the losses suffered earlier this week. The strength of this crop is helping to power other ag-related ETFs to strong gains. The iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Total Return Subindex ETN (JJG) and the PowerShares DB Agriculture ETF (DBA) are among the biggest movers.
iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) 3.0%Despite seeing an initial dip due to a less than favorable storage report form the Energy Information Administration, natural gas futures funds are heading higher. The premium laden GAZ is leading the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG). The crisis sweeping Libya is thrusting crude prices into the spotlight and helping to power futures-based funds such as iPath S&P GSCI Crude Oil Subindex Total Return ETN (OIL) and United States Oil Fund (USO) to some of the day's biggest gains as well. ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) 1.4% Palladium prices are strengthening, helping PALL continue to recover the ground lost during its early March breakdown. Looking ahead, investors with exposure to PALL will want to keep a close eye on economic conditions around the world. Due to its extensive use across a number of industries, this white metal tends to follow broad market action.
