SummerHaven Dynamic Agriculture Indexsm (“SDAI”)
The SummerHaven Dynamic Agriculture Index (“SDAI”) is an innovative index approach that uses fundamental signals about underlying physical markets to create an active agriculture index benchmark for commodity futures investors. The SDAI tracks the performance of a fully collateralized portfolio of 14 agriculture contracts: six grains, five softs and three livestock contracts. Seven agriculture contracts are selected each month through steps designed to identify agricultural markets in a low inventory state. These seven agricultural markets are over weighted for the month from their standard base weights, and the remaining seven agricultural markets are underweighted from base weights.
