What Are Corn ETFs?
ETFs offer an interesting opportunity for investors to gain exposure to corn prices, as this approach requires minimal trading activities or maintenance from the individual investor. For U.S. investors, the Teucrium Corn Fund (CORN) is the only pure play option for corn exposure, though corn is included in a number of broader agricultural ETFs and commodity indexes as well. CORN spreads exposure to corn futures across three different maturities in an attempt to more closely match spot prices. Investors should note, however, that the underlying assets are corn futures, and that as such CORN won\'t always replicate movements in the spot price of corn perfectly.
Investors outside the U.S. have more options for corn exposure through ETFs; ETF Securities offers both inverse and leveraged corn options in addition to the traditional long corn fund.
