What Are The Top 10 Most Traded Commodities?

On average, what are the top 10 most traded commodity markets?

Is there a clear top 10, or top 5 at least?

Ultimately, my goal in asking is I am looking for other markets to trade other than crude oil (CL) when crude does not meet my trading criteria (about 30% of the time). Instead of just not trading, I would rather screen a few other markets for trading setups but I am only interested in commodities traded in USD. Maybe something that is not correlated to oil too.

What is the website address for that liquidity chart?
It says it is comparing Mar '19 contracts but the Nasdaq for instance is shown as being the 8th most liquid market, above Crude Oil. Yet from the CME website Friday's volume for the Nasdaq was 350,000 contracts, but Crude traded 1,350,000.

The list above doesn't show the volume, so I guess this is a comparison off the traded value.

as example: todays values: 1 NQ contract has a value of 152k, 1 CL contract has a value of 63k

It looks like the chart published by Stocks and Commodities Mag.
I'm not able to check ATM but I've seen a similar one in the back pages

It is from TASC. Here is the complete page.

Just an observation on this liquidity table - as wonderful as it is, it can be mis-interpreted. For example, looking at Lean Hogs, or Live Cattle or Cocoa, it may appear that these are not tradable as they are near the bottom of the list, but the reality is that there is plenty of volume there for the retail trader. Since the table shows relative liquidity, the enormous volumes of the ES and Treasuries un-realistically dwarf and distort the picture for the others.
