The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin and Brendan talk about the big swing that's about to occur with commodity prices. The high volatility of commodities has hit a lot of industries in recent months, specifically retail and grocery.
