Description
The investment seeks to reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of the price of natural gas delivered at the Henry Hub, Louisiana, as measured by the daily changes in the price of a specified short-term futures contract. The fund invests primarily in futures contracts for natural gas that are traded on the NYMEX, ICE Futures Exchange or other U.S. and foreign exchanges. The Benchmark Futures Contract is the futures contract on natural gas as traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange that is the near month contract to expire, except when the near month contract is within two weeks of expiration.
The investment seeks to track the price and performance yield, before fees and expenses, of the UBS Bloomberg CMCI Energy Total Return index. The fund is designed to be representative of the entire liquid forward curve of each commodity in the index. The index measures the collateralized returns from a diversified basket of energy future contracts and is designed to be representative of the entire liquid forward curve of each commodity in the index. It is comprised of the seven futures contracts included in the CMCI with five different target maturities for each individual commodity.
The iPath® Pure Beta Seasonal Natural Gas ETN is designed to provide investors with exposure to the Barclays Natural Gas Seasonal Total Return Index. The Barclays Natural Gas Seasonal Total Return Index (the "Index") reflects the returns that are potentially available by maintaining an unleveraged investment in a rolling position in Henry Hub Natural Gas futures contracts plus the rate of interest that could be earned on cash collateral invested in specified Treasury Bills. The Index is comprised of a single Natural Gas futures contract, except during the roll period when the Index may be comprised of two futures contracts.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
