I am currently watching gold, silver, cooper, corn, wheat, soybean, stock index, some forex futures and t-bonds. I wonder if there are anything else you recommend?
Is it worth trading less popular commodities like lumber, lean hogs and soybean oil?

Of course it your choice, I guess it doesn't make sense to post all available instrument.

Go with instruments which have volume and learn how it moves, start with 1 or perhaps 2, because every instrument will have its own personality.

my personal experience: i'm trading about 5m usd for my own a/c and i trade the following (i am using their futures code to make it easier)

Equities:
ES, YM, RTY, NQ, NKD, FDXM, FCE, FFI, IN, CN

FX:
EC, JY, BP, SF, AD, NE, CD, MP

Fixed Inc:
ZT, ZN, ZB, FGBM, FGBL, FLG, JGB1 (this is new for me)

Non agri Commods:
LCO, CL, RB, HO, NG, CFI, HG, GC, SI

Agri commods:
ZC, ZS, ZW, CT, KC, SB, HE, LE

Crypto:
BTC, ETH.

I looked at lumber, oats, orange juice, rough rice, etc but those are really too thin in terms of volume in my opinion.

I have found that it is very difficult to follow more than a few markets. Although that depends on your style of trading. I find that for day trading I prefer ES, CL and GC. They have enough volume and have nice swing during the day.

I do swing trading so I can follow a few more than just 3 markets. Probably 20 is fine.
