i don't really see why inflation would drive up demand for commodities. sure commodity prices will go up, but prices of intermediate and final goods also go up, and so do wages... i imagine inflation would increase all stock prices by about the same amount.
Be very careful with commodity ETFs. They are not direct proxies for the commodity itself. Only a few of them are actually backed by real bars of gold, or silver, or whatever, sitting in a vault somewhere. And all of them are forced to buy and sell their contracts and obligations at set points in time, meaning that they can occasionally miss the boat on large price fluctuations in either direction.
