MacroShares ETF Lists 2 ETFs on NYSE Arca -- 2 ETFs to provide exposure to the Underlying Value (UV) of crude oil


NYSE Euronext (NYX) announced that its fully-owned subsidiary NYSE Arca today began trading two MacroShares exchange traded funds (ETFs) on a listed basis after the group transferred from NYSE Alternext US (formerly, the American Stock Exchange). The underlying value of these securities tracks the spot price of West Texas Intermediate light, sweet crude oil (WTI).

MacroShares enable investors and hedgers the ability to hold an economic interest in either the upward or the downward movement of the reference index because every MacroShares offering is comprised of a pair of securities that trade separately: “Up” MacroShares and “Down” MacroShares.

“We are pleased to welcome the MacroShares Up and Down Oil Trust to NYSE Arca,” said Lisa Dallmer, SVP, Global Exchange Traded Products and Indexes, NYSE Euronext. “MacroShares, the first issuer of Paired Trust Securities, is an innovator, and we look forward to listing more Paired Trust Securities developed by MacroShares that will give investors the opportunity to track important sectors of the economy.”
