About the index

The Index is an excess return index that comprises 1 to 3 month exchange-traded futures contracts on a single commodity (West Texas Intermediate crude oil) and is a subindex of the Bloomberg Commodity Index (Bloomberg: BCOM) and a member of the Bloomberg Commodity Indices family. The Index is designed to measure the returns that are potentially available through an unleveraged investment in rolling West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures contracts traded on major commodity exchanges. The futures contracts are never taken to delivery, and are instead rolled forward into replacement contract every other month. The performance of the Index is primarily determined by the timing of the roll and the relative price movements of the incoming contract and the outgoing contract. The WTI crude oil futures contracts tracked by the Index roll approximately every other month to the contract that is two months longer in maturity. The Index provides investors with a benchmark for rolling futures contracts in this single commodity.  The Index was created in February 2006 and has no performance history prior to that date.
