    Take OOO (Oil price ETF) for example.
    It was floating around $13 and now around $2.9.

    What happens to this ETF if the price hits $0.00??

    It's a synthetic. Goodbye sunshine and kiss your wallet farewell.

    But the current yield is 20.6%, why would you get rid of such a good investment??? :)

    The question is, does it have enough money to keep rolling futures?

    Where is the real number after that 20.6% according to the recent distributions chart or I missed something?

    Probably the sum of year's distributions over current share price as is usually done to determine yield.

    I think they're all buying further future dates now.

    A roll of toilet paper is probably worth more than a tanker full of oil.

    So ditch oil and invest in TP is my red hot tip. TP futures (hedged) rule OK?

    I did buy OOO at $2.6 few days ago along with CBA. It was about 5% of my total portfolio. So, it isn't a huge amount, but still a decent chunk.
