Oil energy ETFs are the most popular exchange traded funds. But there are also other energy sources and they can be traded using some exchange traded funds.
I discussed the basic oil ETFs in previous article and now I would like to show other possible options for commodity trading strategies.
Natural gas commodity ETF
This energy commodity could be a big substitution to the oil in every sector of world economy. The United States have huge reserves of natural gas and starts to explore them. The USA, formerly biggest importer of energy commodities, are going to be the larger exporter of natural gas.
It is going to change the economic situation in the world a lot. Some of my Global macro themes use Natural gas etf strategies and I monitor this commodity exchange traded fund in my list of ETFs regularly.
UNG fund. The investment objective of UNG is for the changes in percentage terms of the units’ net asset value to reflect the changes in percentage terms of the price of natural gas delivered at the Henry Hub in Louisiana, as measured by the changes in the price of the futures contract on natural gas traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange
The uranium is important source for nuclear power generators. There are many newly built nuclear power stations and many new plants are going to be finished in the coming years. The demand for an uranium will be huge.
It is possible to trade this commodity using uranium energy ETFs based on portfolio of companies doing business in this sector. The PKN and URA exchange traded funds are also included in my list of ETFs.
Exchange traded funds now track also such a category like an alternative energy sources. It is possible to track companies doing business in wind or solar energy generation.
