Commodities Shone in 2016 -- Market Talk

5 Jan 2017 5:01 am

0501 GMT [Dow Jones] Commodities had one of their best years in 2016, according to S&P GSC Index. Energy was the best-performing sector, gaining 18.1%, while industrial metals had their best year since 2009, says Jodie Gunzberg, global head of commodities and real assets at S&P Dow Jones Indices. The comeback in those two sectors was meaningful since they are the most economically sensitive, she adds. The last time these two sectors were up this much together after two consecutive negative years was in 1999. (biman.mukherji@wsj.com)
