KOLD Factset Analytics Insight
KOLD provides -2x exposure to the performance of a futures contract on natural gas for one day. The fund is therefore designed to be used as a tactical trading tool, to be held for no longer than one day. Investors using it as a buy-and-hold investment will be subject to the effects of compounding, which can—and often will—cause the fund to drift from its promised -2x exposure over longer holding periods. The fund's index follows a pre-determined roll schedule, which rolls the expiring contracts into contracts that are about two months out. Although KOLD charges a stiff fee, trading costs are of more importance than holding costs, given its short-term nature. Unfortunately, the fund may not be easy to trade, as daily trading volume is lukewarm and spreads are often wide.
