Can I track an investment in a commodity in Home, Business & Rental Quicken 2018, such as Silver, using a futures price tied to SI=F?

    Not that I know of.  You can of course setup a 'manual' company and use the ticker for whatever you want, assuming Quicken can find that ticker, and assign it to the company.  You can use a ticker for more than one company.  I do it now for stock in my 401(k) accounts and outside it as well.

    Don't know if that helps?

    One can generally use SLV or GLD for current commodity prices of silver and gold, likely recognizing a conversion factor if trying to represent ounces as shares.  I do not know of any such vehicle for Futures pricing nor is there any direct way to get CMX exchange pricing.

    RE: CMX, another user recently has posted that they can get CMX quotes by using the prefix CMX: (just like using TSX: or VSX:). I do not have direct experience with this.
