Proper Investment Diversification With All Commodity ETFs and ETNs On The Market

We computed the correlations of the vast majority of commodity ETFs and ETNs on the market for the period October-November 2009. With the drop in value of the US dollar, investors who seek to invest in commodities should check that the commodities are not correlated.

Values near 1.0 and -1.0 indicate high positive or negative correlation (same thing, they are correlated). What investors should look for to achieve diversification iare values near zero.

The most uncorrelated ETFs and ETNs for this period were:
