June 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- United States Commodity Funds announced that the United States Commodity Index Fund (USCI) has received the highest 5-Star Overall Rating™ from Morningstar. The fund was rated against the 85 Commodity Broad Basket funds for its overall risk-adjusted performance over the three-year period ending March 31, 2014.

"We believe commodities have an important role in an investor's portfolio," stated John Hyland, Chief Investment Officer of United States Commodity Funds, "and we're pleased to have earned this recognition from Morningstar. USCI offers a unique way for investors to access commodities."

USCI seeks to track the returns from a portfolio of diversified commodity futures contracts. The fund's benchmark is the SummerHaven Dynamic Commodity Index (SDCI), which is based on the research of Yale Professor Geert Rouwenhorst. The SDCI's selection process uses market price signals to identify commodities with lower inventory positions for inclusion in the index each month.
