    Commodities have been the poor stepchildren of the global capital markets even though by the standards many investors use to judge the attractiveness of capital assets they should be treated as the honor roll student with athletic capabilities, attractive appearance, and a nice personality. This article seeks to explain why commodities have failed to gain broader acceptance, why current market conditions favor commodity investment, and why long only and commodity index funds are an appropriate commodity investment vehicle for rational, informed investors.
