DME Oman included in first commodity fund

- PRESS RELEASE
For the first time the Dubai Mercantile Exchange's flagship crude oil futures contract, DME Oman, is to be included in a new US-based commodities fund which will give investors exposure to Asia's rapidly growing demand for raw materials.
DME's Chief Executive, Chris Fix, said, "DME Oman's inclusion in, we believe, its first fund is a significant milestone and ringing endorsement of the relevance of DME to the growth of the Asian oil market. Like us, this fund is betting on the rapid growth of crude oil consumption in countries like China and India and I feel certain that over time other funds will follow the lead this launch sets."
He added, "We're already seeing 40% of the crude oil traded on the DME going to China and are confident that as our market matures, volumes will continue to build, aided by DME Oman's inclusion in more Exchange Traded Funds."
"This fund being listed in the US will make trading in DME Oman truly global like never before, opening up access to the US investor community for the first time," he stated.
The USACBF will be listed on NYSE Arca Inc. and own futures in those commodities where China, Japan and India combined account for at least 10 percent of global demand and are likely to be net importers.
