This ETN seeks to replicate an index which is made up of a single exchange traded futures contract, except during the roll period when the index may consist of two futures contracts. Unlike many commodity indices which roll to the corresponding futures contract on a monthly basis in accordance with a pre-determined roll schedule, the Index may roll into one of a number of futures contracts with varying expiration dates, in order to help eliminate contango as much as possible and avoid the damaging effects that this phenomenon can have on portfolios. This particular ETN looks at the commodity of crude oil, arguably, the most important resource in the world. Crude is vital to modern society and as such it can be a great play on the health of the world economy, surging when growth is robust and slumping when markets hit recessions. Besides this fund, investors have a few other options for achieving exposure to oil via the futures market. Other options are far more liquid but they face steeper contango issues as well. Additionally, investors have a number of equity options which allow for exposure to crude without the issues of contango but face risks of stocks. One particularly intriguing choice in this slice of the market is XOIL as it looks to stay very correlated to crude oil prices over the long haul.
