wheelThe U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission has not adopted its long-expected position limits yet, but quick thinking commodity traders have already started to find ways to circumvent them


.  According to Barrons, “A new Thomson Reuters/Jefferies In-the-Ground CRB Global Commodity Equity Index is expected to launch this week, and it promises to help investors bypass futures based commodity exposure while still playing in the commodity universe. This composite index tracks the equity prices of commodity-producing companies, rather than the commodities themselves. Some 70% of the companies’ assets are “in the ground” — hence the name. The index is unusually well diversified, both geographically and by commodities represented. The companies handle energy, industrial metals, precious metals and agricultural products such as livestock, grains, sugar, coffee and cocoa.

Already, ETFs based on the index are expected from ALPS Advisors and sub-advisor Arrow Investment Advisors.”
