Commodities, whether they are in the form of food, metals or energy, are an important part of everyday life. Overall, commodities were on a mostly sound footing in the first half of 2019. 

The S&P GSCI returned more than 13% as of June 30, one of the best first six months in recent memory. The S&P GSCI is a composite index of commodities that measures the performance of the commodity market. The index made up of 24 exchange-traded futures contracts covering physical commodities spans five sectors.
