I think in the short term commodities, particularly industrials could take a big hit. Buying on those dips would be smart. I would not trade individual commodities. I would and am getting into Rogers Commodity Index Fund which is essentially a long play on commodities. Commodities are not risky if invested in this way. They have a bad rap because so much margin is available in commodities trading and during subsequent boom and busts, as always individuals get in when things are out of control on the upside and end up losing their shirts.
