    • The ProShares Managed Futures Strategy (NYSEARCA:FUTS) seeks profits in rising and falling markets by taking long and short positions in futures across asset classes such as commodities, currencies and fixed income.
    • "With their low correlation to both stocks and bonds, managed futures strategies can be a smart choice for investors looking to enhance the risk-adjusted returns of a traditional portfolio," said Michael L. Sapir, Chairman and CEO of ProShare Advisors LLC, in a press release.
    • Weights for contracts within the fund are determined by a proprietary risk-weighting methdology, so that each contract contributes the same level of risk to the index.

    BlackRock announced it will liquidate the iShares Diversified Alternatives Trust (ALT) next month. "Based on the review and client feedback, it appears this product has a limited role in today’s investment portfolios, and we have seen little long-term demand," said Patrick Dunne, head of Global Markets and Investments for BlackRock. This will be the first closure for an iShares ETF since 2002.

WDTI vs. ETF Alternatives
WDTI Description
The WisdomTree Managed Futures Strategy Fund seeks to achieve positive total returns in rising or falling markets that are not directly correlated to broad market equity or fixed income returns. The Fund is managed using a quantitative, rules-based strategy designed to provide returns that correspond to the performance of the Diversified Trends Indicatorâ„¢ ("DTI Index" or "Benchmark"). The Fund intends to invest in a combination of U.S. treasury futures, currency futures, non-deliverable currency forwards, commodity futures, commodity swaps, U.S. government and money market securities. The Benchmark is a widely-used indicator designed to capture the economic benefit derived from rising or declining price trends in the markets for commodity, currency and U.S. treasury futures.
