LONDON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Below are tables of the best and
worst performers in the third quarter of 2013 among the
actively-managed commodity funds in the Lipper Global database.
    The return performance is calculated in the fund's local
currency. The tables use the latest available data provided to
Lipper and strip out enhanced index funds that use a very simple
rules-based system of rebalancing, as well as funds that are
wholly focused on natural resource equities.
