The year 2008 made for a wild ride in the race for the best exchange-traded fund of the year.Just how volatile has the year been? Consider this: At the midway point in this race, June 30, the United Stated Natural Gas Fund (UNG) had established a strong lead with a year-to-date return of 73.7%, and the United States Oil Fund (USO) was up 46.9% at the half-way point. Fast-forward six months, and these two funds are now actually down 33.4% and 57.7% on the year as commodity ETFs have suffered quite the pullback.
