Our colleagues at S&P Dow Jones Indices have launched a new commodity index. Investing in commodities through indexes do or do not have a significant impact on price; we cite both sides of the coin to note that it is an issue of significant disagreement among analysis. We are republishing here a blog post from S&P's blog Indexology, written by Jodie Gunzberg, global head of commodities for S&P Dow Jones Indices.
