Since the middle part of 2017, an extremely broad range of commodities have managed to trend higher. Predictable behavior near major levels of support and resistance has made this group a favorite among active traders. Traditionally, when active traders would look to gain exposure to commodities, they would be required to have a futures account.
Commodity traders have benefited from some of the strongest trends in the public markets over the past several years. As you'll read about below, clearly identified levels of support and resistance combined with predictable price action near these levels have made commodity segments such as oil services and agriculture favorite spots to trade.

Commodities ETFs are a great way for investors to jump into the sector while avoiding some of the volatility that tends to befall the individual stocks. Here are three with momentum.
Over the past several years, commodity traders have profited from some of the strongest uptrends found anywhere in the public markets. As we'll discuss in this article, the defined levels of support, as measured by ascending trendlines, have provided consistent entry positions for strategic traders looking to gain exposure. The recent introduction of sideways momentum is now dominating the price action and seems to creating clear levels of support and resistance. When broken, these levels will likely define the direction of the next leg of the long-term trend.

MORRIS: In essence one of the things we have accomplished with these three products is to reduce the volatility inherent in all markets, and in particular very volatile markets like the real asset sectors. It’s another way, in a sense, for investors, by keeping those profits through the cycle, they can actually compound their money in a slightly different way as opposed to a buy-and-hold strategy for long periods of time. In some ways this is kind of a marriage of our fundamental investing, long-only investing heritage, particularly in emerging markets and global markets and natural resources.
Previously in this series, we looked at copper miners’ second-quarter productions and 2018 guidances. When commodity prices fall, high-cost producers become unprofitable much more quickly than those who are placed more favorably on the cost curve. It’s therefore crucial for commodity producers to have competitive cost structures.
Recent selling pressure across the commodities market has sent the prices below key levels of technical support, which has active traders on the lookout for a continued move lower. In this article, we'll take a look at the charts of several popular exchange-traded products that are used as barometers for gauging the future direction of the major commodities markets and key segments. Given the rise in niche exchange-traded funds (ETFs), active traders often turn to the Invesco DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund to get a sense of the overall direction of the broad commodities market.
While the emerging equities were falling into a bear market, commodity prices and related exchange traded funds were also dragged down by the weakness in the developing economies. Over the past three months, the PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund (DBC) , the largest broad commodity-related ETF, fell 7.3% and the iShares S&P GSCI Commodity-Indexed Trust (NYSEARCA: GSG) declined 6.7%. Among the key worries in the commodities space, China, the world's largest consumer of raw materials from metals to fuels, is showing signs of slowing down, and other emerging economies are also beginning to exhibit weakness as well.

As the headwinds are likely to continue to dissipate, the potential benefits of real asset investing are coming into clearer focus. Notably, an allocation to real assets can be used to help investors enhance portfolio diversification, gain exposure to global growth, and hedge against the impact of inflation. As the current environment progresses, it is a good time to consider the impact of inflation and an allocation to real assets.
Inflation is something that has not been seen in well over a decade, but the ingredients are there: a strong U.S. economy, unemployment at historic lows, and the recent stimuli of tax reform, deregulation, and government spending, which may not even have fully taken hold yet. Plus, recent indications from the Fed continue to indicate a potentially more aggressive approach to tightening. In developed countries, inflation had languished below the central bank’s target level for many years.
Meanwhile, although it may be slowing, global growth has improved over the short-term, and despite some uncertainty around tariffs and global trade, supply/demand dynamics across many commodities are back in balance and look to become even more favorable in the near future. Plus, companies across many of the primary industries associated with real assets are now in improved financial and operational shape after several years of restructuring to reduce capital expenditure and improve overall efficiency. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) expects the global economy to register a growth of 3.9% in 2018 and 3.9% in 2019.
Rising trade war concerns have played an important role in the market’s recent movements.

Major commodities, including oil, showed some nervousness as market participants expected rising trade tensions to hamper the demand outlook for major emerging nations.
