ProShares Ultra DJ-AIG Crude Oil UCO ETF seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to twice (200%) the daily performance of the The Dow Jones-AIG Crude Oil Sub-Index , a sub-index of DJ-AIG Commodity Index NYMEX Crude Oil  (Symbol:DJAIGCL) is intended to reflect the crude oil segment of the commodities market.  The Dow Jones-AIG Commodity Index is valued using the settlement prices for the underlying futures contracts.  The DJ-AIGCI rolls its contracts over the course of 5 consecutive business days, starting on the 6th business day of the month. Each day, 20% of each futures position that is included in the month's roll is rolled.  Not all contracts are rolled every month.  UCO Daily HoldingsNAV History spreadsheet; Premium/Discount AnalysisSEC

NOTE: UCO or The DJ-AIGCI rolls its contracts over the course of 5 consecutive business days, starting on the 6th business day of the month.

Some Argue that leveraged Funds are Risky because of the "Compounding Effect" 

Example using $100 Starting investment:

Day 1 Value gaining 10%  is $100 x 1.10 = $110.00
Day 2 Value losing  (10%) is $110 x  .90 =    $99.00
Day 1 Value Loses (50%) is $100 x  .50 =  $50.00
Day 2 Value gains  50%  is    $50 x 1.50 =   $75.00

Comments: If you understand that this ETF objective is to trend Dow Jones-AIG Crude Oil Sub-IndexSM and not West Texas Intermediate Crude  (WTIC), then you will understand  the above argument applies for any stock.  The rolling is the for the index is same as for UCO.


 Danny Penney from Stockcharts (He Uses EMA 15 and 9 for USO assume same for UCO)

Eliminate the daily noise...Trading decisions should be made on the basis of changes in price, it's really that simple. The method shown in these charts attempts to identify the best EMA's for each symbol, providing maximum gains with minimum effort and trading. No system is perfect 100% of the time, but when you consider these charts I think you'll agree that this trading method works. PLEASE VOTE FOR ME IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE..

Cheers, Dan

Some RULES for this I-Hub Board....
This board will be used for analysis of charts ranging in different time periods to determine signals for trading of various instruments=individual stocks, etf's and options. Please direct your comments towards technical indicators that everyone can see on a price chart:  we are talking about signals and technical indicators here, not opinions or predictions or forecasts of  when the next grand slam will be... share technical signals and charts with the group and if you have an active position...we are not looking for opinions... Rather than being opinionated and letting your subjective bias determine which side of the market to be on,  try to maintain objectivity based on technical analysis. One of the key items to remember as investors/traders is that the market doesn't always reflect reality. Oftentimes it reflects belief. And belief can prove to be a delusion. 
Markets are not about beliefs, but about sentiment. And, if you can track sentiment, then you are in a position to make your investment account grow without the need for excuses.
 If you feel you must GAMBLE and encourage gambling from the 5 minute or lower time frames you will be asked to take  your message to the "gamblers board"...If you feel you  "must " offer an opinion or off topic comment; please do it after trading hours. Charts and signals at signal lines is what we want...If you feel you do not need to answer questions on this board (then why are you here) you will also be sent to another Board.
I-Hub's rules state:  It is the burden of each poster to ensure that their posts do not contain content that qualifies them for removal. It doesn't matter if your post contains the cure to the common cold or the best stock tip since (fill in your favorite ticker here), if it contains other content that is a violation of the site's rules of conduct, then it qualifies for removal.
 ...Thank You...
