United States Oil Fund, LP is an exchange-traded fund.  The investment seeks to reflect the performance, less expenses, of the spot price of West Texas Intermediate light, sweet crude oil.  The fund will invest in futures contracts for WTI light, sweet crude oil, other types of crude oil, heating oil, gasoline, natural gas and other petroleum based-fuels that are traded on exchanges.  United States Oil Fund, LP has lost 47.63% over the trailing 6-month period and 40.83% over the trailing 3-month period.

Structured products that invest in derivative instruments, including futures contracts, are extremely complex and risky.  They are only suitable for wealthy, sophisticated retail investors or institutional investors.

Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
