Praise for Commodities for Every Portfolio

"With compelling arguments and pertinent observations, this book will not only tell you why you should own commodities but also how to best own them. Commodities for Every Portfolio is an excellent, very compelling, and easy-to-grasp guide to commodities and commodity-related investments. This book is a must-read for your wealth protection!"
—Marc Faber, Marc Faber Limited,
author of Tomorrow's Gold: Asia's Age of Discovery

"Read this book if you want to learn how to best benefit from the current surge in commodity prices. Emanuel's information-packed road map and easy read provides a blueprint for everyone who is interested in profiting from the commodity boom. I am reminded of Jesse Livermore's famous saying in that he made most of his money getting in on a trend and then sitting on his hands. Emanuel is handing us the trending markets on a silver (or gold or copper) platter. The rest is up to us."
—John F. Carter, President, www.tradethemarkets.com,
author of Mastering the Trade

"The commodity boom is just getting started and the next ten years offer the most lucrative opportunities for investors who are willing to learn and have a top notch teacher like Emanuel Balarie. In this book you get not only a wealth of information on commodities but the knowledge of how to actually put that knowledge into action that will lead to big profits. No big words, no fancy explanations, just real-world examples and hard-hitting strategies that are key for every investor interested in entering the world of commodities trading. I highly recommend this book."
—Kevin Kerr, Editor, Resource Trader Alert

"Commodities have been the hottest sector of the new millennium. Every investor who has considered diversifying into this explosive sector needs to read Emanuel Balarie's book."
—Phil Flynn, Vice President and Senior Market Analyst, Alaron Futures and Options

"There is plenty here for seasoned investors, given the timeliness and relevancy of the topic and the author's forecasts, but most impressive is how Commodities for Every Portfolio helps novices decide which method of commodity investment -- futures, stocks, mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) -- is right for them." (SFO Magazine)

From the Inside Flap

Over the last few years, commodities have grown in popularity and gained a considerable amount of momentum along the way. On one end of the spectrum, agricultural commodities have roared to new highs and on the other end, metal and energy prices have rallied from their most recent lows. Even commodity markets that have struggled over the past year have quickly turned around in the midst of increased demand.

Commodities have become a powerful and profitable asset class, but many investors still lack a basic understanding of the commodity markets. While they might know about these markets in a general sense, they don't really know how the commodity market functions and what factors are instrumental in determining futures prices. That's why industry expert Emanuel Balarie has written Commodities for Every Portfolio.

Filled with in-depth insights and practicaladvice, this accessible guide will provide you with important information and convincing reasons for why—and how—you should participate in the long-term commodity boom. Whether you're an experienced commodity trader or simply looking for a better understanding of these markets, Commodities for Every Portfolio will help you discover how this undervalued and underrepresented asset class can not only provide you with profitable investment opportunities, but also balance out your portfolio.

Divided into three comprehensive parts, Commodities for Every Portfolio:

  • Establishes a solid foundation for how commodity markets work

  • Identifies the various investment vehicles that you can use to participate in this market—including futures, stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs

  • Outlines different strategies you can use to profit from this commodity bull market

  • And much more

Taking the time to learn about the commodity markets—and their inherent advantages—today can help you position your portfolio to profit from moves that will occur tomorrow. Whether you want to participate in the leverage that commodity futures can offer your portfolio, whether you want to have a hedge against inflation and a declining stock market environment, or whether you simply want to add a diversifying asset to your stock and bond portfolio, Commodities for Every Portfolio is the book you need to achieve success in your investment endeavors.

After spending the last 10 years investing in stocks and seeing the rapid climb in commodity prices, I wanted to learn more about the markets and how to profit from the move. After seeing Mr. Balarie on many business channels I decided to pick up his book, and I am glad I did.

Balarie starts the book with his opinion that the commodity bull-run is far from over while highlighting many key drivers to support the sustainability of the rally.
What I found the most beneficial was where he goes into the many ways to investment in commodities and the inherent risks involved.

If you are interested in commodities this is a must read.

Format: Hardcover
I rate this book 5 star because it provided me with tons of information in an easy to read and understand manner. The book is broken down into three different parts. Section is made up of several chapters that focuses on why we are in a commodity bull market, how the futures markets actually work( I finally got understand!) and some myths and misconceptions about the markets. This chapter alone( about myths and misconceptions) is well worth the read.

The second part of the book looks at the different ways of particiapting in the markets...it has a chapter for commodity ETFS, commodity futures, commodity mutual funds, and commodity stocks.

The last part of the book looks at some different ways of participating. This was one part of the book that i was confused about. The section was titled strategies, but it seemed to be somewhat vague about the specigics. Nonetheless, this section has an excellent chapter on gold that I highly recommend. Overall, the author does a great job of introducing me to a wide array of topics surrounding the commodity markets

A book that just touches on the basics. A few good insights though. His future out look for commodities I feel is spot on. I think Jim Rogers covers commodities from different angles and gives the reader a more in depth understanding for the case of commodities.

Timely and concise, this book is packed with relevant information without going into extraneous and unnecessary detail. This book is a great, no-nonsense "how- to" reference guide, written by a competent practitioner for an investor.

Format: Hardcover
not really much insight, e.g., it advises buying commodities etf but does not explain why some oil etfs fail to closely track oil price increase,

but if you are a complete novice to commodities trading, this book will be a good introduction, though not indepth enough
