Commodities Growing in Popularity

Commodities Growing in Popularity

 

Once the reserve of agricultural and food producers and dealers, commodities are now used widely by regular investors who can buy and sell commodity contracts.

 

Growing Interest

 

Many financial analysts and advisors predict that commodities are going to see much more interest by individual investors – some even forecasting up to 15 per cent of a portfolio being dedicated to them.

 

Why are commodities going to become more popular?  Traditionally they have been seen as an ‘edge’ market – why are they heading further into the mainstream? 

 

Fiscal Boosts

 

In 2009, large levels of fiscal boosts took place.  Governments pumped high amounts of money into their economies to improve them, meaning that most of the four main commodity groups performed well: precious metals, base metals, energy and agriculture.

 

Higher Demand

 

Another reason for growing interest is the growing strength of emerging markets – who are large scale consumers of all kinds of commodities, from metals to timber and big plans for infrastructure.  Therefore the demand for many areas will rise steadily.  Even water is likely to become a highly valued product!

 

So, if you are looking for a new prospect for your investment portfolio, speak to your investment manager or financial advisor about commodities – and have a look at the Futures companies on our site.
