Commodity ETFs are an emerging way to trade and track the movement in prices of Commodities.

These investment instruments are available to Canadians through ETFs and ETNs on the TSX and on the American Exchanges.

Commodity ETFs are sometimes actually ETCs (Exchange traded commodities). They were originally established to track gold holdings, but now can track futures in many different commodity holdings

ETCs often have different regulations attached to them that an investor should consider. They may be accountable to commodities governing bodies rather than than SEC or Canadian equivalents.

There are many Canadian Commodity ETFs and other commodity tracking ETFs that are available to Canadians to buy. The below table tries to break down each of the products available,

If you are looking for Oil & Gas commodity ETFs, look here

The same applies to Gold & Silver . We have a seperate section to track both of these.

Below is a tabular list of all ETFs and ETNs in the commodity space that are commonly available to Canadians. There are a number of these ETfs on the London Stock Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange and most importantly the Toronto Stock Exchange.
