From the Inside Flap
While commodities have been around for a long time, investors are just starting to realize their potential. But in order to achieve success in tomorrow’s commodities market, you need skills and knowledge that are in short supply today.
That’s why Adam Dunsby and his colleagues at Cornerstone Quantitative Investment Group (CQIG)—a leading commodity trading advisor—have created Commodity Investing. Rooted in theory, but proven in practice, this detailed guide will give you the tools you need to succeed in this challenging market.
Opening with a clear assessment of past commodity performance, this reliable resource puts commodity futures investing in perspective and prepares you for what should be expected along the way. With this information in hand, you’ll be introduced to the commodities themselves and discover the state of their industries as well as their long-term outlook. Along with these big picture issues, you’ll also become familiar with the nuts and bolts of numerous commodities—from oil, corn, and cattle to copper, coffee, and cotton—and learn how to effectively integrate them into your portfolio.
Based on the hard-won experiences of authors Adam Dunsby, John Eckstein, Jess Gaspar, and Sarah Mulholland, Commodity Investing explains the various components that may prove useful in either constructing an investment strategy or in evaluating a commodity-based investment strategy. It also provides important insights on trend following strategies, anchor variables, the shape of the futures curve, and risk control methodologies such as value-at-risk and maximum drawdown. Page by page, you’ll acquire a deeper understanding of this discipline, which will allow you to analyze specific commodities and strategies according to their individual characteristics and make more informed decisions when investing in this arena.
Straightforward and accessible, Commodity Investing balances academic-quality analysis with clear, compelling prose, and provides those interested in this fast-growing field with unparalleled investment insights. With this book as your guide, you’ll benefit from the lessons of experienced practitioners and quickly come to grips with what it takes to make it in today’s commodity market.
From the Back Cover
Praise for Commodity Investing
“Luck and skill are two key elements in successful trading. The authors can’t do anything for your luck, but they think and write clearly both about the way commodities markets really work and about the way futures markets for those commodities behave. This book will be an excellent resource for those who are drawn to these markets.”
—Galen Burghardt, Senior Vice President, Director of Research, Calyon Financial
“Adam Dunsby [et al.] is well organized, rich in information, and eminently readable. Combining a comprehensive primer to the fundamentals of commodity markets, thoughtful and sophisticated considerations for developing systematic trading methods, and invaluable reference material, it will certainly be on the compulsory reading list for Aspect’s research team.”
—Martin Lueck, Director of Research, Aspect Capital Ltd
“At last, a refreshingly insightful and easy-to-read analysis of that very latest of investment crazes on Wall Street—commodities! The authors dare to challenge conventional wisdom and view this asset class through the prism of long-term, inflation-adjusted economic data, reaching the sobering conclusion that the historic price action of so-called non-renewable commodities may not be quite what the Malthusians of our day would have the public believe! This is a must-read for any person (be it for themselves or on behalf of an institution) who is giving consideration to making an investment in the commodities markets.”
—Alex Ladouceur, Chief Executive Officer, Global Commodities Group, Prudential Financial
