Salus Alpha Commodity Arbitrage tracks the CAX – Commodity Arbitrage Index. The CAX Index covers the performance of arbitrage strategies, which aim to extract consistent market neutral returns from valuation inefficiencies arising among related commodities – like for example Brent Crude vs. WTI Light Sweet Crude – or among different maturities of futures contracts on one commodity due to Contango, Backwardation and Seasonality.

Contango denotes a market situation where longer-dated commodity futures are priced higher than shorter-dated commodity futures. Markets in contango are characterised by low demand relative to available supply. In these markets, investors holding a long position suffer a roll loss when selling expiring contracts at low prices, and buying new contracts as higher prices. The CAX Index currently has a 10.00% spread position in Wheat, which is currently 46.62% p.a. contangoed.
