United States Oil Fund
The United States Oil Fund® LP (USO) is a domestic exchange-traded security designed to track the movements of West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") light, sweet crude oil. USO issues units that may be purchased and sold on the NYSE Arca.
The investment objective of USO is for the daily changes in percentage terms of its units' net asset value ("NAV") to reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of the spot price of light, sweet crude oil delivered to Cushing, Oklahoma, as measured by the changes in the price of the futures contract for light, sweet crude oil traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange (the "NYMEX") that is the near month contract to expire, except when the near month contract is within two weeks of expiration, in which case it will be measured by the futures contract that is the next month contract to expire (the "Benchmark Oil Futures Contract"), less USO's expenses.

USO® is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder.
This investment is not suitable for all investors.
Commodity trading is highly speculative. Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors. USO is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Investing in USO subjects you to the risks of the oil industry. These risks could result in large fluctuations in the price of USO's units. An investor may lose all or substantially all of an investment in USO. Funds that focus on a single sector generally experience greater volatility.
The Benchmark Oil Futures Contract does not correlate exactly with the spot price of light, sweet crude oil and this could cause the changes in the price of the units to substantially vary from the changes in the spot price of light, sweet crude oil. Therefore, you may not be able to effectively use USO to hedge against crude oil-related losses or as a way to indirectly invest in crude oil. For further discussion of these and additional risks associated with an investment in USO units, click here.
Units of USO may be purchased or sold throughout the day through any brokerage account, which will result in typical brokerage commissions. Investors buy and sell units in the secondary market (i.e., not directly from USO). Only authorized purchasers may trade directly with USO, in minimum blocks of 100,000 units.
