WisdomTree Managed Futures Index

The WisdomTree Managed Futures Index is a long/short, rules-based Index designed to provide exposure to a portfolio consisting of diversified futures contracts for commodities, currencies and interest rates. On a monthly basis, assets with lower realized volatility will be selected, and a determination to go long or short the futures contracts of the selected assets under a proprietary composite momentum framework will be made. The composite momentum framework incorporates multiple momentum signals to decide the direction and weight in the Index.
