Investments in commodities (such as crude oil, coal, sugar, coffee beans, wheat and other goods) and precious metals (such as gold, silver or platinum) can be made indirectly through stocks, mutual funds, ETFs, or derivatives, or directly by buying or selling the commodity or precious metal itself. Interest in precious metals has increased in recent years as the price of gold and silver has reached all-time highs. Speculating on commodities prices has inherent market risk. This risk can be increased by the risks of the investment vehicle utilized to invest in the commodity (for example derivatives and/or margin accounts). Commodities trading is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) and the National Futures Association (“NFA”).
