How to Invest in Cocoa

Though uses of cocoa are limited--this commodity is used primarily in the production of chocolate--the market for this resource is massive. Though demand for cocoa as an investable asset is not nearly as large as the demand for some other commodities, it has some appeal to those with a short-term focus because supply shocks can send prices higher in a short period of time.

Investors looking to gain exposure to cocoa prices have multiple options; while physical possession is not feasible, futures contracts and exchange-traded products offer opportunities to access this commodity.
