Publication of 2010 weights for Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index delayed


The publication of the 2010 target weightings for the Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index has been delayed pending publication of the 2006 Industrial Commodity Statistics Yearbook by the United Nations.

The yearbook is used to determine the commodity production weights for crude oil, natural gas, lean hogs and live cattle.

The Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index Supervisory Committee will continue to monitor the status of the United Nations yearbook and will consider alternative sources of production data or use data from the previous yearbook if the latest version is not available in time to publish the 2010 commodity index percentages in advance of their implementation in January 2010.

The target weightings are used to determine the Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index multipliers for 2010 in January 2010. These multipliers, computed once a year, are factors used to express the percentage weights in US dollar-denominated terms when calculating the Index.

The Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index is composed of 19 futures contracts on physical commodities. The DJ-UBSCI family of indexes includes nine sector sub-indexes, multiple forward month indexes, sub-indexes for each individual commodity in the original DJ-UBSCI as well as for cocoa, lead, platinum and tin.
