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)
