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.



We developed our commodity risk ratings to indicate the upside 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 60% or higher risk rating should indicate relatively high-risk and unfavorable investment conditions. Consequently, it would be best if you consider staying away from such markets or put your risk management skills in action to protect your investment.


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

Please find more details on our risk benchmarks at our risk rating overview.


We provide the following five commodity market risk ratings:

A global gold risk score

Since 2018 the comprehensive and broad Gold Risk Rating (GXAUR) aims to measure the risk of spot gold investments in USD. Historical data for the GXAUR is available at

A global commodity risk score

Introduced in 2021, our benchmark risk score for commodities (GCBR) indicates the risk of a spot commodity basket of 26 energy, metals, and agriculture commodities in USD, such as the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil.

Three sector commodity risk scores

covering the commodity sectors energy, metals, and agriculture.

The gold price links to approximately 500 billion USD, out of the estimated 2 trillion USD of over-the-counter (OTC) derivates on commodities. Besides the very liquid precious metal markets, oil commodities are also vastly liquid because commodities are still the essential basis of the world economy.

One unique advantage of commodities is that they act as a reasonable inflation hedge. Typically commodity products are part of standard inflation indices and price baskets. Therefore an investment in commodities offers the closest inflation hedge among all asset classes.
