ETCs are tradable in USD and provide access to Rogers International Commodity Enhanced Indices (RICI)
Eight new exchange traded commodities (ETCs) issued by BNP Paribas Arbitrage Issuance B.V. have been tradable on Xetra since Thursday, Deutsche Börse just announced.
The new ETCs expand BNP Paribas’ product range by giving investors access to the performance of futures contracts from the metals and energy sectors now also in the trading currency US dollars. The reference indices from the Rogers International Commodity Enhanced index family track the futures contracts with differing maturities in the following commodities: gasoline (petrol), precious and industrial metals, energy, natural gas, gas oil, heating oil and WTI oil. The limited term of the futures contracts requires a switch prior to expiry in exchange for a futures contract with the next expiry date (rollover). Possible rollover losses are minimised through an optimised procedure for selecting futures contracts.
Deutsche Börse’s product range in its ETF and ETP segment currently comprises 1,147 ETFs, 232 ETCs and 132 ETNs. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €13 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue.
