    Question How to buy any commodity index in AUD?

    Is it possible to get exposure to indexes like RICI, CRB, GS Commodity Index, or any other raw commodity index (no mining companies) without first converting currency to USD. Is it possible to keep your money in AUD?

    Oh and by the way, I would like to stay away from leveraged products like CFDs, futures etc. Maybe an ETF (but I haven't seen one and Ive looked a lot)...help please

    You probably can't get decent exposure in AUD, however, there are a number of ETFs in CAD (traded on the TSX) that will probably be a decent proxy. Have a look through this list:
