This exchange-traded note is the only pure play option out there for investors looking to gain exposure to cotton prices. As such, BAL doesn’t make much sense for those with a long-term focus but can be a nice tool for investors looking to be on short term movements in cotton prices. A couple items to note: BAL is an ETN, meaning that investors are exposed to the credit risk of the issuing institution. Also, BAL won’t provide exposure to spot prices, but rather to the performance of a future-based index. Investors seeking broad commodity exposure would be better off with DBC or USCI, but for those seeking pure play cotton exposure BAL is the only game in town.
