This ETN offers exposure to agricultural commodities, seeking to replicate a well-known commodity benchmark. Given this relatively narrow focus, RJA probably doesn't have much use for those building a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio; it will be better suited to those looking to implement a shorter-term tactical tilt towards agricultural commodities. RJA is just one of many options out there for exposure to agriculture, and the low volume and occasionally wide spreads may be cause for concern. RJA can be an effective tool for gaining exposure to agricultural commodities, but DBA offers better liquidity while UAG is cheaper. It should be noted that this product is an ETN, meaning that unlike ETFs (such as DBA) it will expose investors to the credit risk of the issuing institution but will avoid issued related to tracking error (which can be material in the commodity space). Moreover, the tax treatment across commodity ETFs and ETNs may be unique. And it is critical to note that the underlying index consists to futures contracts; as such, RJA won't necessarily offer exposure to spot agriculture prices.
