From the Back Cover:


Since 1939, professional traders, commercial hedgers, portfolio managers, and speculators have come to regard The CRB Commodity Yearbook as the "bible" of the industry. Here is a wealth of authoritative data, gathered from government reports, private industry, and trade and industry associations, all compiled by the Commodity Research Bureau, the organization of record for the entire commodity industry.

The Yearbook is absolutely essential for identifying changing trends in supply and demand and for projecting important price movements. It gives investors:

  • Worldwide supply/demand and production/consumption data for all the basic commodities and futures markets—from A(luminum) to Z(inc), including all the major markets in interest rates, currencies, energy, and stock index futures
  • Over 900 tables, graphs, and price charts of historical data, many of which show price history dating back to 1900
  • Fact-filled CD-ROM provides readers with valuable commodity information in an easy-to-use electronic format
  • Concise introductory articles describe the salient features of each commodity and help put the quantitative information in perspective
  • Articles by prominent professionals on key markets and important issues concerning the commodity industry. The 2006 Yearbook features articles by CRB Chief Economist, Richard W. Asplund, including:
  • "2001–06 Commodity Bull Market Posts New Record Highs," "Reuters-CRB Index Is Revised to Reuters-Jefferies CRB Index," "Commodity Index Funds Have Growing Bullish Influence," "Crude Oil Prices Post a New Record High in 2005," "U.S. Dollar Recovers in 2005 But Remains Vulnerable," "U.S. Economic Expansion Continues Despite Hurricane Katrina," "World Economic Expansion Gains Strength," and "China Continues to Drive World Commodity Prices."

For anyone dealing in commodities, The CRB Commodity Yearbook 2006 offers an abundance of valuable information and indispensable guidance for decision making.
