Rule Your Retirement had recommended DBC as a part of the ETF model portfolio. However, Sharebuilder will not allow the purchase of DBC in a ROTH account because it is a 'partnership' or something like that. I guess DBC isn't a typical ETF because it is buying commodity futures.

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a similar commodity ETF that would be a substitute for DBC? Also, do many of you have commodities in your ROTHs, and if so, in what form? I'm just wanting a small percentage of a commodity index, but not sure of the best way to get there.

Thanks,
Jeff
