About the channel

The once dormant commodity index space has seen a sharp uptick in activity since 2020, with investors seeking out commodity exposure as an inflation hedge and for portfolio diversification benefits. There are now significant sums of capital rotating in and out of index products daily, impacting the price of many key commodities beyond traditional supply and demand dynamics.

In addition, many investors and traders now gain access to commodity index products, sector exposure, or single commodity exposure through ETFs. In fact, there are currently hundreds of commodity ETFs trading on stock exchanges around the globe. Broad-based index funds, precious metals, and the energy sector all have well developed ETF products with a wide array of funds to choose from. Trading activity has been picking up in Base Metals and Agricultural markets too, with strong growth expected in the coming months and years.

This channel aims to connect the dots between ETFs and the futures markets by providing key commodity index and ETF data and knowledge.
