ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the massive influx of capital into commodity futures from index funds on some basic market relationships in the U.S. Long only commodity funds (LOCF) have come to dominate the futures industry through both their sheer position sizes and the constant swirl of discussion surrounding their future. However, the surge of commodity groups has caused outrage by some consumers. Also presented are the reasons that prices have risen over different groups.
