That was quite a week for crude oil, wasn't it? If you were long crude, you were feeling some pain. You might want to try using currencies to trade on commodity moves.

"If you want to play a commodity, take a look at the country. If they're a big exporter of a commodity, there might be a currency trade there that's more liquid and therefore cheaper to do."
