Question by Maple Leaf: What is energy investing and agriculture investing? How is it different from investing in the stock market?
Then there is real estate investing. What does it mean to invest in these things. How are they different from investing in the stock market?
Answer by Mike Z
You can invest in all of the above through the stock market or in some other way.
The US stock market has so called Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that include either companies from these fields or commodities that they buy in the Futures Market.
In Agriculture for example, you can buy stock symbol DBA, which is invested in agricultural commodities such as grain, corn, etc. Or you can buy shares of a company with stock symbol POT, which produces and sells fertilizer components for agriculture. This stock price is related to agricultural prices.
