Default CBR Claymore Broad Commodity ETF

This ETF is so diluted I'm not sure if there's a point to it. I'd rather invest separately in metals (and I've done that with other ETFs) and separately into an Agriculture ETF (BMO and Claymore offer them).

If you toss everything together it's harder to sell one that is underperforming since it means you're selling good performing commodities at the same time.

I guess you can call it a general commodity index but I don't like it, I'd like to keep them separate so you can capitalize on a specific commodity and buy/sell when needed without bunching these all together.
