    Hi All,

    Given that the price of Oil is likely to continue to rise, would it be a smart idea to invest in this? How would one go about investing in Oil and other resources, via Commodities?

    What would be a good strategy? Am i able to purchase commodities via Commsec?

    Cheers.

    From what I have been reading and hearing from late, oil prices are probably over priced at the moment, some people think significantly overpriced, though there definitely seems to be a lot of reasons to justify for increased demand in the future.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread, but do people think oil is a good investment at the moment?

    How can I buy oil spot or futures without margin lending?

    Does comsec let you buy oil?
