The DB Commodity fund is only working in six commodities -- crude oil, heating oil, gold, aluminum, corn, and wheat. While they are dealing with futures, they don't tell you which side of the price they are dealing from. The current fact sheet on Powershares.com shows the slight bets the fund takes relative to the index.

I think the rebalance that takes place in November is related to the timing of the annual distributions. I would hope they would watch markets more often than once a year. There is quite a bit of money to be made, for example, in heating oil by trading the calendar and weather forecasts.

I'm still looking as well but this looks like an intriguing ETF.
