So that is th emost updated list, but I'll be making adjustments as new funds are brought to market or if any are taken down, so be sure to check back often.

ETFs and ETNs have lots of benefits, especially in regards to capital gains taxes, so it might be time you got started with exchange traded funds.

And as with any ETF, or any investment for that matter, make sure you conduct thorough research on each fund before making any trades.

Learn about each fund, its holdings, and how it reacts to different market conditions.

Every ETF (and investment) has risks, so make sure you are aware of the risks for the above funds. And if you have any questions, be sure to consult a financial professional such as an advisor or a broker.

But once you are confident that a oil ETF is the right investment choice for you, then good luck with your trades.
