NYBOT: S&P Institutes Annual Weightings Changes For The S&P Commodity Index

Date 02/11/2001

In accordance with its published methodology, Standard & Poor's announced today the weightings for each of the 17 commodities found in the S&P Commodity Index (SPCI). Weightings have changed for each of the commodities and will remain fixed in the index for one year. The changes will be implemented at the close of trading on February 8, 2002.

The individual commodity weightings are based on a two-year average of commercial open interest, as identified in the Commodities Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC) Commitment of Trader Reports, which is further adjusted to remove the "double counting" of upstream commodities (i.e, Crude Oil) from the downstream commodities (i.e, Heating Oil and Unleaded Gas).
