Commodities Erase Gain for 2011 on Signs Recovery Is Faltering

Commodities slumped, erasing gains for the year, on growing concern that the global economic recovery is faltering.

The Thomson Reuters/Jefferies CRB Index of 19 raw materials slumped 2.4 percent to 329.31 as of 1 p.m. in New York, led by declines in silver, energy and nickel. A settlement at that level would leave the index down 1 percent for the year.
