The reference index excludes components from livestock and agriculture. The top 5 futures contracts from the commodity sectors stated are selected monthly on the basis of their performance, and then weighted equally in the index. The total share from the fossil fuels group is capped at 70 percent.
The product offering in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment currently comprises a total of 1,139 exchange traded funds. This selection, together with an average monthly trading volume of around €15 billion, makes Xetra Europe’s leading trading venue for ETFs.
