Commodities: The Next Hot Trade?

Friday, 14 Aug 2009 | 6:58 PM ET

After a hot week, copper, sugar, gold and oil all dropped Friday, along with the markets. Is it time to buy them on this dip? Dennis Gartman of the Gartman letter joins the Fast Money crew to give his take.

"This market has gotten awfully, awfully overbought," says Gartman, noting that everyone is short the dollar and long commodities. He thinks that this is the time for a correction in prices and that is what happened today. And he expects this trend to continue for a few days.
