The Rogers International Commodity Index (RICI) was developed by Jim Rogers on July 31, 1998 to be an effective measure of worldwide raw materials price action. It is a broad-based representation of commodities intended to be global and diverse. [1]

It is a composite, U.S. dollar-based, total return index. The RICI® represents the value of a basket of commodities consumed in the global economy, ranging from agricultural to energy to metal products. The value of this basket is tracked via futures contracts on 36 different exchange-traded physical commodities, quoted in four currencies, listed on eleven exchanges in five countries.[2]
