Oil-Strategy

24 February 2015

There are essentially two ways in which investors can participate in a rise in the price of oil: by investing in shares of promising oil groups and thus participating indirectly in the price trend, or by investing in oil futures. The index does both. Depending on the shape of the oil futures curve, it has phases where it invests either in equities or futures. In other words, it invests in the corresponding futures to profit from roll gains in a backwardation situation, whereas in a contango scenario it invests in oil equities to minimize the disadvantage of roll losses.
