If you're considering investing in commodities or commodities-backed instruments, you'll want to find out as much as you can about what you're investing in. Companies have to file quarterly and annual financial reports, and they provide a wealth of information that is very valuable to the investor.

When you do invest, you'll want to practice the magic word — diversification — and manage the risk/reward ratio for not just your individual securities, but for your overall portfolio.
