While the world is awash in resources to teach you all about stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, for whatever reason, there is a dearth of clear, accessible information out there about commodities investing.

To address this, Asset Prime, in addition to our ongoing commodities insight and analysis, will be running an educational series called "Commodities 101" which seeks to provide the average investor with the information she needs to understand the commodities markets and how to participate. We'll try to cover as much ground as is possible while keeping things short, accessible, and (hopefully) entertaining.
