Commodities are raw materials or goods used in commerce such as precious metals (gold, silver, copper, platinum), crude oil, wheat, sugar, and cattle. Commodities are a type of alternative investment.
There are several ways to invest in commodities. One is to purchase raw commodities, such as precious metal. Others include investing through futures contracts or exchange-traded funds that track a specific commodity index, or through mutual funds that invest in commodity-related businesses.
Commodities are complicated and often risky investment products, and commodity prices can be extremely volatile. Furthermore, industries can be significantly impacted by a number of factors that are impossible to predict, such as world events, economic conditions, government regulations, and more.
Various sales tactics can reel in less experienced investors that may not conduct the proper due diligence before investing in commodities. If you lost money because the product you invested in was unsuitable for you, you may be able to recover your financial losses. Contact an experienced attorney who can review your case.
