Investing in an index is the best way to invest in Commodities

Jim Rogers : You make more money in futures trade as you know because of the leverage you only have to put down 5 or 10 percent and you can buy huge amounts of most commodities you cannot do that with stocks or ETFs , having said that , if you understand specific commodities ETFs or away I presumably talk about ETFs on specific commodities then yes but I will quickly add to it the study shows that most people are better of investing in indexes no matter what the asset class as you well know passive investing outperforms active managers 70 or 75 percent at a time year after year after year , for most people if they decide to invest in commodities having done their homework investing in an index is the best way to invest but that's true of stocks bonds currencies and everything else - in TMRN Time Monk Radio - 2011-08-21
