This ETN is designed to give investors exposure to agricultural commodities through a futures-based index strategy, making it a potentially useful tool for those who believe that food prices will rise or seeking general protection from inflationary pressures. JJA's primary appeal is likely to be to those looking to implement a relatively short-term tactical play, though it may be useful as part of a longer-term portfolio as well thanks to the potential diversification benefits. There are several items that should be noted; first, JJA is linked to an index that is comprised of futures contracts, and as such may not always reflect movements in spot commodity prices. Second, as an ETN this product avoids the tracking error that can plague funds such as DBA, but does expose investors to the credit risk of the issuing institution. Moreover, the ETN structure may result in unique tax consequences for certain investors. Those seeking more broad-based commodity exposure have a number of options in the Commodities ETFdb Category, while those seeking more precise exposure also have a number of single commodity ETPs at their disposal.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for JJA on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
