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. The sectors in 2019 are energy, industrial metals, precious metals, agriculture, and livestock. Energy was the largest sector at 62.63% of the index. Agriculture had a 15.41% share, while livestock came in at 6.66%. Industrial metals accounted for 11.16% of the GSCI, and precious metals were 4.14%. In a repeat of last year, crude oil was the top performing commodity, up 28.76% as of June 30.
