A data frame with 11 variables


The commodity data frame contains three layers of complexity. The first layer is the strategy layer. The strategy column contains three different strategies that divide the whole data frame into three part. Each strategy is further divided into different substrategies, and all these substrategies are contained in the substrategy column. For each substrategy, different portfolios are formed regularly and overlapping with each other, so each substrategy is divided into different overlapping portfolios, contained in the portfolio column.
