Hedge Funds Raise Bullish Bets on Commodities

Hedge funds are bullish on the prices of many commodities, according to recent trading data.  The Commodity Futures Trading Commission reports that combined net-long positions held by speculators across 18 U.S. futures and options increased 0.2% to 656,691 contracts for the week ending October 11.  Although some hedge funds recently got burned on a recent sell off of commodities, hedge funds appear to be banking on a rebound.
