Understanding Commodity Trends

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 / 8:00 am - 9:15 am

Commodity trading definitely isn't for the faint of heart — but it can offer dramatic rewards. The past few years have been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride. What's the outlook going forward? Can gold continue its amazing run? What are the prospects for global commodity demand and supply? Will we see spikes in food prices as we did in 2008? Panelists discuss price trends, the most promising sectors and the impact of China's growing appetite for energy and materials.
