United States Gasoline ETF is down 43.02% year-to-date.
Commodity ETFs may be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity index volatility, changes in interest rates or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity. Unique risk factors of a commodity fund may include, but are not limited to the fund’s use of aggressive investment techniques such as derivatives, options, forward contracts, correlation or inverse correlation, market price variance risk and leverage. Commodity ETFs may be subject to greater volatility than traditional ETFs and 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.
