Oil and Gas ETF
It is obvious that the oil price is primarily important for the price movement of this oil and gas ETF. That being said, the reaction on the oil price is probably minor to what you would expect.
Share prices of mining companies may react much heavier than the prices of the basic materials they are mining. With oil and gas companies you will see the opposite, they tend to react much less intense than the prices of oil and gas themselves.
The main reason for this is that oil and gas companies are triggering many long term investors who are in it for the dividends they pay out. Speculators are more active in mining companies then in oil and gas companies.
