Commodities are a unique asset class and have been one of the earliest forms of investment.

One of the main advantages of commodities investments is that the returns are regularly independent of standard stock and bond market investments.



Our commodity risk ratings have been engineered to indicate the up- and downside potential of major commodity markets (e.g., spot gold denominated in US Dollar per ounce) on an aggregated basis in percentage points.


Generally, a risk rating of 60% or higher should indicate relatively high-risk and unfavorable investment conditions. Consequently, you should consider staying away from such markets, or if you have already invested, put your risk management skills in action to protect your investment.


A risk rating of 40% or lower should mean a low-risk market with favorable market conditions for the respective commodity.
