The CCI, or Continuous Commodity Index, revised the original Commodity Reaserch Bureau Index (CRB) in 1995. The CRB was originally traded in 1986, and then its name changed to the Reuters CRB Index in 2001. Further, the CRB follows the general direction of a compilation of commodities rather than any one market sector. The CCI Index is composed of seventeen commodity futures contracts.
