Investing in forestry and timber. Of course timber is use in a wide array of applications. In some countries the timber industry is very huge indeed. The demand for timber will always be large but global market conditions have a major impact.
Returns may be attractive in this timber ETF but they are not at extreme levels. A 50% return in a year however is entirely possible. I prefer to make many short rides as the prices are fluctuating heavily.
