Investing in Commodities

Investors wishing to diversify risk may opt to hedge their bets by allocating a portion of their portfolios to commodities. Be it the purchase of physical raw commodities, such as precious metal bullion, or investing in futures contracts or exchange-traded products that track a specific commodity index, the commodities market is a highly volatile one, so invest with caution.
