OREANDA-NEWS. Five new exchange traded commodities (ETCs) issued by BNP Paribas Arbitrage Issuance B.V. have been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Friday.

Each of the five new BNP Paribas ETCs enable investors to participate in the performance of one of the following energy types: petrol, diesel, heating oil, natural gas and WTI crude oil. The corresponding reference index from the Rogers International Commodity Enhanced Indices commodity index family tracks the respective futures contracts with varying maturities. The limited term of the futures contracts requires a switch prior to expiry in exchange for a futures contract with the next expiry date (rollover). Possible losses as a result of the rollover are minimised using a selection procedure. Only contracts expiring in June or December are bought for the index. A rollover takes place twice a year and spans five trading days. The indices are denominated in US dollars.
