ETF Spotlight on Teucrium Corn Fund (CORN), part of an ongoing series. Assets: $130.2 million. Objective: The Teucrium Corn Fund tries to reflect the daily performance of the closing settlement prices on three futures contracts for corn that trade on the Chicago Board of Trade.
Michael Johnston submits:Recent years have seen the launch of hundreds of new exchange-traded products, many of which offer increasingly granular exposure to various asset classes. The latest innovation comes in the commodity space, where Vermont-based Teucrium Trading LLC filed with the SEC for an ETF that invests in Chicago Board of Trade Corn Futures.
Michael Johnston submits:Teucrium, the firm that debuted the only pure play corn ETF last year and recently added a natural gas fund, announced the launch of its third exchange-traded product today. The Teucrium WTI Crude Oil Fund (CRUD) offers exposure to futures contracts for WTI crude oil, also known as Texas Light Sweet Crude Oil, traded on the NYMEX.
Michael Johnston submits:Teucrium Trading LLC, the Brattleboro, Vermont-based firm that launched the first pure play corn ETF (CORN) earlier this month, has now filed for SEC approval on a slew of single-commodity funds offering exposure to everything from crude oil to soybeans.

Michael Johnston submits:The last two years have seen a tremendous surge in the number of exchange-traded products available to US investors. While there have been several “copycat” products to hit the market, the vast majority of new fund launches have focuses first-to-market ETFs unlike anything already out there. Skeptics have been saying for a while that all the good ideas are taken, but these theories have been repeatedly shot down as new ETFs have burst on to the scene and rapidly accumulated assets.
ETF Database submits: Recently we spoke with Sal Gilbertie, president of Teucrium, to discuss the market for commodity ETPs and how these investments could make for an interesting component of a portfolio. Additionally, we dived into the company’s flagship product, the CORN fund, to find out why investors should take a closer look at this important commodity.
Tom Lydon submits:
Teucrium Trading, LLC, an investment firm based in Brattleboro, Vermont, is taking a swing at offering an ETF that offers a pure play on corn. The timing is fortuitous, since heavy spring rains could slam crops and contribute to rising prices.
