Share creations halted in two energy ETFs

|By:, SA News Editor

United States Commodity Funds has temporarily suspended share creations for the $11.6M U.S. 12-month Natural Gas Fund (UNL -1.6%) and the $25M U.S. Short Oil Fund (DNO -0.5%).

Creations are suspended while the company registers new shares with the SEC.

Suspensions are notable, of course, because without the ability to create new shares, the price and NAV of ETFs can diverge.

Earlier this month, BlackRock was forced to temporarily suspend creations of its iShares Gold Trust.

Previously: iShares Gold Trust resumes issuance of new shares (March 7)
