    Commodities on a run: How to play Crude Oil

    Commodities are on a run with Cocoa Futures (CC=F) topping $8,000 per metric ton and Copper Futures (HG=F) hitting its highest level in almost a year. Oil prices (BZ=F, CL=F) have also been rising this week, at one point topping over $80 per barrel. Path Trading Partners Co-Founder Bob Iaccino and Blue Line Futures Chief Market Strategist Phillip Streible join Yahoo Finance to discuss how investors should position themselves within the commodity sector. Streible states that oil's rise is a simple function of supply and demand, highlighting a few demand-side drivers: "Resiliency of the US economy has helped to support demand. We've got driving season right here. Any kind of interest rate cut could really be a tailwind for the crude oil market. If you get some of this loan, some of this debt burden behind us with lower interest rates, people are gonna have more money to spend and they're probably going to do it the easiest way, which is travel. So we are starting to see 2024 demand increasing. And we could see upward revisions in '25 and 2026."  Investors may look to the futures market or to ETFs to join the oil rally, Iaccino explains: "I always advise people the thing that's 100% correlated to crude oil is crude oil. So the best play that out is WTI crude (MCL=F), that's my favorite. But, for the average investor, you can look at USO, that's one of the ETFs people generally default to."

    El Niño's "Sweet Tooth" Leads To Disruptions In Sugar Production And Action In The Markets

    The global sugar market is likely to see a surge in prices in 2024 driven by an unusual dry spell in sugar-producing regions like India and Thailand. The dry spell is a knockdown effect of the climate pattern known as El Niño and is marked by above-average temperatures. Driven by warm ocean waters in the tropical Pacific, El Niño has caused extreme weather globally, leading to abnormally dry conditions in Asia and impacting sugar production. This effect leads some to say that El Niño has a “swee
