How to Invest in Wheat
Wheat is one of the most important global agricultural commodities, as this resource is a dietary staple in both developed and emerging markets. Because it is used so widely in the production of food, wheat has appeal as a hedge against inflation.
Wheat prices have shown significant volatility historically, as the supply side of the equation is subject to significant disruptions from extreme weather or other natural disasters. Wheat demand can also fluctuate depending on the health of the global economy.
There are a number of options for investors seeking out wheat exposure; in addition to the liquid futures market, multiple exchange-traded products are available.
