The iPath Dow Jones-UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN is a mouthful, but its intentionally misspelled ticker, ( GAZ), tells you all you need to know. Depending on what commodity or energy specialty you want a fund to track, the tickers can guide you right to them. There is ( OIL) for iPath S&P GSCI Crude Oil Total Return, ( WOOD) for the iShares S&P Global Timber & Forestry Index Fund and ( KOL) for the Market Vectors Coal ETF. Green-energy advocates can similarly check into ( GRID) for the First Trust NASDAQ Clean Edge Smart Grid Infrastructure Index Fund, ( TAN) as in exposure to the sun and the Claymore MAC Global Solar Energy Index ETF and ( FAN) for the First Trust ISE Global Wind Energy Index. -- Written by Joe Mont in Boston. >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Joe Mont. >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/josephmont. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
