A good way to go may be to put money into a managed futures fund that specializes in metals. But there are many out there so you have to do a ton of research on the right one for you.

Many people hear the term "fund" thrown around, so it shouldn't be surprising to see such a mistake. In all likelihood the OP is refering to a Mutual fund of some veriety.. or perhaps a retirement Fund as he indicated he's both locked in and able to change the fund based on risk/strategy.
