StockCharts carries several commodity symbols from Bloomberg that chartists can use to track individual commodities and commodity groups. These can be found by searching the symbol catalog for "Bloomberg and index" (without quotation marks). The image below shows a sampling of these symbols.
The list starts with the Bloomberg Commodity Index, which consists of six commodity groups and twenty-one different commodities. This is the Bloomberg equivalent of the CRB Index ($CRB). Before looking at the components, note that symbols ending with "TR" represent a "total return index", which is one that reinvests all proceeds and distributions. The performance difference, however, is usually negligible and chartists can simply use the normal index for their analysis.
The Bloomberg Commodity Index ($BCOM) can be divided into six subgroups (subindex). These include:
The Performance SharpChart below shows a three month Performance SharpChart with all six subindexes and the Bloomberg Commodity Index. Notice that energy (green) is the top performer and industrial metals (purple) is second. Softs and precious metals are the weakest. Of note, livestock (yellow line) is making a move as its performance line is poised to cross over into positive territory.
