Jumping on one of the more interesting trades of 2011, CME Group will launch Brent crude oil futures contracts on December 12. The U.S. benchmark, WTI crude (ETF: USO), has lost reliability with traders as a world gauge due to logistical issues at Cushing, Okla., where it is priced. Its spread to Brent Crude (ETF: BNO) has fluctuated greatly in past months.
