One thing to consider when investing is whether you want to invest in just one commodity or a mix of commodities. This decision will narrow down some of your investing vehicle options.

iShares offers a Silver ETF (iShares Silver Trust Fund) that invests in silver bullion - wonder if the Lone Ranger ever invested in it?

Commodities can be very volatile. One way to reduce this risk is with diversification. You can invest in a commodity index fund. This gives you exposure to a diverse group of commodities while lowering the risk of exposure to just one or two commodities.

One to consider is the iShares GSCI Commodity-Indexed Trust Fund - but it is heavily weighted to energy commodities.
