The United States 12 Month Oil Fund, LP ("USL") is an exchange traded security that is designed to track the movements of West Texas Intermediate light, sweet crude oil (WTI). USL issues units that may be purchased and sold on the American Stock Exchange. http://www.unitedstates12monthoilfund.com/
USL’s Objective – The investment objective of USL is to have the changes in percentage terms of the units’ net asset value reflect the changes in percentage terms of the price of light, sweet crude oil delivered to Cushing, Oklahoma, as measured by the changes in the average of the prices of 12 Futures Contracts on crude oil traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange (the “Benchmark Futures Contracts”), consisting of the near month contract to expire and the contracts for the following eleven months, for a total of 12 consecutive months’ contracts, except when the near month contract is within two weeks of expiration, in which case it will be measured by the futures contracts that are the next month contract to expire and the contracts for the following eleven consecutive months, less USL’s expenses. When calculating the daily movement of the average price of the 12 contracts each contract month will be equally weighted.
USL’s Portfolio – The portfolio consists of listed crude oil futures contracts and other oil related futures, forwards, and swap contracts. These investments will be collateralized by cash, cash equivalents and US government obligations with remaining maturities of two years or less.
