With energy prices soaring, energy futures provide insight into where the market thinks energy prices are headed. Precious metals (for example, gold) are considered a safe haven in uncertain times, and you can find out about what the current trend is under the Metals tab. Food prices are captured under Grains (corn, for instance) and also under Livestock (e.g., pork bellies — so much for pork barrel politics!). To round it all out, there are even indices that track the overall commodities.
