Supplement: Commodity Index Report

Metadata Updated: January 12, 2014

Shows index traders in selected agricultural markets. These traders are drawn from the noncommercial and commercial categories.

The noncommercial category includes positions of managed funds, pension funds, and other investors that are generally seeking exposure to a broad index of commodity prices as an asset class in an unleveraged and passively-managed manner. The commercial category includes positions for entities whose trading predominantly reflects hedging of over-the-counter transactions involving commodity indices, for example, a swap dealer holding long futures positions to hedge a short commodity index exposure opposite institutional traders, such as pension funds.
