Commodities are Volatile
This is why investing in commodities proves to be so difficult and why I don’t venture into this realm. Very volatile and cyclical.

I would imagine there is ALOT of individual investors who chase commodities and end up significantly under performing.

@jensen they are definitely missing uranium! But yes the chart is cool and there is zero patterns that I can spot

Great chart.

I'm in the same boat as you.

I prefer businesses with products and services that don't vary so widely. But as Howard Marks says "all things prove to be cyclical."

Investing in commodities is a buy and sell business and not buy and hold. A lot of investors don't get that.
