Top 10 Commodity Producer ETFs

| September 4, 2012 | Comments (0)

Commodity-based companies and associated ETFs are critically important as a gauge of economic health and demand, inflation and should be important additions to most investment portfolios. Underlying commodity prices can be affected by many factors including the level of the U.S. dollar which can depress prices when strong. With inflation pressures waxing and waning many believe it’s important to have exposure to commodity oriented stocks and ETFs. Nevertheless, even if underlying commodity prices rise, commodity related common stocks and linked ETFs may or may not follow suit. This makes investment timing that much more important.

Investors may choose an appropriate ETF from the ETFs listed below to best satisfy the need for index-based investments for their portfolios. Additionally, we’ve included leveraged long, leveraged short, and inverse ETFs for sophisticated traders and investors wishing to hedge or speculate. These ETFs are available primarily from ProShares and DirexionShares. I urge you to do your homework before engaging in these ETFs.

In my latest ebook, “” I handpick the best ETFs even further  in the US Equities space in 26 subcategories, ranging from different market capitalizations and approaches, to sector and subsector-specific ETFs, to dividend and high yield dividend ETFs. This ebook is just the first in a series that aims to help you construct a comprehensive, well-balanced portfolio of ETFs from across the wide spectrum of markets and asset classes available. The next books in the series will focus on overseas ETFs, fixed income ETFs, alternative ETFs, and portfolio construction.

A few ETFs below feature a technical view of conditions from monthly chart views. If interested in seeing current charts for these ETFs, you need look no further than by reading my blog, .  I post many of ETFs on a daily basis using daily and/or weekly charts and if looking for monthly charts, most of these are also featured within my new ebook as mentioned above.

When viewing my charts, my simple recommendation for  longer-term investors is that they stay “above” or on the “right-side” of the 12-month simple moving average (MA). When prices are above the MA, stay long, and when below, remain in cash or short. Investors more interested in a fundamental approach may not care so much about technical issues, instead preferring to buy when prices are perceived as low and sell when high, among other reasons.

At this purely fundamental strategy is not our only approach. newsletter receive added trading alerts for many of these ETFs when markets become extended. Our proprietary trading system features ETFs with weekly and daily charts, and provide investors signals as to when to exit and/or hedge open positions, or when conditions become overbought or oversold.
