Methodology 2
Foreword
S&P Dow J ones Indices is pleased to provide the 2013 edition of the S&P GSCI
Methodology. This issue replaces the S&P GSCI Methodology published in J anuary
2012. On February 2
nd
2007, S&P Dow J ones Indices acquired the GSCI from Goldman
Sachs; subsequently the index was renamed the S&P GSCI

. Changes to the index, since


February 2007, have been the annual rebalancing according to the index rules, the change
of ownership and changes to index governance. This foreword summarizes these
changes.
Revisions to Index Governance
S&P Dow J ones Indices has established an Index Committee consisting of full time
employees of S&P Dow J ones Indices; with one member serving as the chair. The Index
Committee is responsible for the S&P GSCI, the rules that govern the Index and the
annual rebalancing of the Index. The Committees responsibilities are similar to those of
the GSCI Index Policy Committee when Goldman Sachs owned the index. The Index
Committee met in October 2012 to review and approve the 2013 annual rebalancing. The
rebalancing results were announced on November

5
th
2012, and take effect with the
J anuary 2013 roll period beginning on J anuary

8
th
2013.

S&P Dow J ones Indices has also established an S&P GSCI Advisory Panel consisting of
a number of industry and investment leaders drawn from organizations that use the S&P
GSCI or which are active participants or observers of the global commodities markets.
This group meets annually, or more often at the request of the Index Committee, to
discuss developments in the markets and possible adjustments or changes to the S&P
GSCI. Its role is advisory; there are no votes and it cannot bind or require the Index
Committee to make any changes to the S&P GSCI. S&P Dow J ones Indices values the
advice provided by the Advisory Panel.
Index Licensing
As the owner of the S&P GSCI, S&P Dow J ones Indices is the sole licensing agent for
the index. S&P Dow J ones Indices is pleased to report that the Index continues to be
among the most widely used indices of global commodity futures prices and that
numerous investment organizations, commodity users and trading firms are active users
of the S&P GSCI. Index licensing activities at S&P Dow J ones Indices are separate from
index management and oversight. Questions about index licensing can be directed to the
product management or marketing individuals listed at the end of this Methodology.
The 2013 S&P GSCI Rebalancing
There are no substantive modifications that have been made to the S&P GSCI
Methodology since the prior edition. The Related Contract criterion set up for the 2007
methodology was used for the 2013 edition. Only the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE)
traded WTI Crude contract and the Henry Hub Natural Gas cleared Swap qualified as
Related Contracts. For purposes of calculating the Total Dollar Value Traded (TDVT)
and Trading Value Multiples (TVM), the NYMEX traded WTI Crude contract took into
account the trading volume of the ICE WTI crude contract and the NYMEX traded

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 3
Natural Gas contract took into account the trading volume of ICE traded Henry Hub
Natural Gas cleared Swap.

This 2013 edition of the S&P GSCI Methodology continued to utilize the new World
Production Quantity (WPQ) sources for cattle, cotton, hogs and sugar incorporated in
2012. The 2007 edition of the United Nations Industrial Commodity Statistics Yearbook
reincorporated the Industrial Production figures needed to calculate the World Production
Quantity for cattle. Due to a 2008 change in selection criteria for cotton and sugar from
the Food and Agriculture Organization on their FAOSTAT Web site, S&P incorporated
new world production data from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The Investment Support Level (as set forth in the definition of that term) remains
unchanged at US$ 230 billion, to reflect a realistic estimate of the general level of
investment in the S&P GSCI and other commodity indices, which can be supported by
liquidity in the relevant Designated Contracts. This change does not have a material
effect on the composition or calculation of the S&P GSCI at this time. Nevertheless, this
change reflects the fact that S&P Dow J ones Indices remains committed to modifying the
methodology for determining the composition of and calculating the S&P GSCI, as
necessary, in order to preserve and enhance the utility of the S&P GSCI as a benchmark
for commodity market performance and as a tradable index that enables market
participants to obtain broad-based exposure to these markets.

This edition of the S&P GSCI Methodology reflects the methodology that is used with
respect to the determination and calculation of the S&P GSCI for 2013 and should not be
relied upon in connection with any prior years. The methodology is subject to change in
the future.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 7
I. Introduction

I.1 Overview of the S&P GSCI
The S&P GSCI is designed as a benchmark for investment in the commodity markets and
as a measure of commodity market performance over time. It is also designed as a
tradable index that is readily accessible to market participants. In order to accomplish
these objectives, the S&P GSCI is calculated primarily on a world production-weighted
basis and comprises the principal physical commodities that are the subject of active,
liquid futures markets. There is no limit on the number of contracts that may be included
in the S&P GSCI; any contract that satisfies the eligibility criteria and the other
conditions specified in this methodology are included. This feature enhances the
suitability of the S&P GSCI as a benchmark for commodity market performance and to
reflect general levels of price movements and inflation in the world economy. The S&P
GSCI is calculated and maintained by S&P Dow J ones Indices.
I.2 The S&P GSCI Methodology
On any given day, the composition and value of the S&P GSCI, as determined and
published by S&P Dow J ones Indices, are dispositive. This document describes the
methodology used by S&P Dow J ones Indices in determining such composition and
calculating such value. Neither this methodology nor any set of procedures, however, are
capable of anticipating all possible circumstances and events that may occur with respect
to the S&P GSCI and the methodology for its composition, weighting and calculation.
Accordingly, a number of subjective judgments are made in connection with the
operation of the S&P GSCI that cannot be adequately reflected in this methodology. All
questions of interpretation with respect to the application of the provisions of this
methodology, including any determinations that need to be made in the event of a market
emergency or other extraordinary circumstances, will be resolved by S&P Dow J ones
Indices in consultation with the Index Committee, or the Index Advisory Panel where
appropriate. S&P is committed to maintaining the S&P GSCI as a liquid, tradable index
that serves as a principal benchmark for commodity investing. We also recognize that
the detailed rules-based approach contained in the Index Methodology may not at all
times reflect the underlying liquidity and condition of a specific market, particularly in
periods of extraordinary market volatility or rapid technological change.

Therefore, S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine that a given Contract that satisfies the
eligibility criteria set forth in this methodology should nevertheless be excluded from the
S&P GSCI if inclusion of such Contract is inconsistent with, or would undermine, the
purposes of the S&P GSCI as a benchmark for commodity market performance and a
tradable index, or if inclusion of such Contract in the S&P GSCI would otherwise not be
in the best interests of market participants.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 8
Further, modifications to the methodology used to calculate the S&P GSCI may be
necessary from time to time. S&P Dow J ones Indices reserves the right to make such
changes or refinements to the methodology set forth in this document as it believes
necessary in order to preserve and enhance the utility of the S&P GSCI as a benchmark
for commodity market performance and the tradability of the S&P GSCI. S&P Dow
J ones Indices also reserves the right to take such action, with respect to the S&P GSCI, as
it deems necessary or appropriate, in order to address market emergencies or other
extraordinary market events or conditions. Wherever practicable, any such changes or
actions are publicly announced prior to their effective date.

Certain of the provisions of this methodology are expressed in formulaic as well as
descriptive terms. In the event of any conflict between the descriptions of these
provisions and the corresponding formulae, the descriptions will govern.

This methodology is divided into five substantive sections: (1) the selection criteria for
inclusion of contracts in the S&P GSCI; (2) the methodology for determining the weight
of each such contract; (3) the methodology for determining the contract expirations of
each such contract; (4) the methodology for determining the normalizing constant used in
calculating the value of the S&P GSCI; and (5) the methodology for calculating the value
of the S&P GSCI. Together, these elements determine the value of the S&P GSCI on any
given day.
I.3 The S&P GSCI and Related Indices
In order to reflect the performance of a total return investment in commodities, four
separate but related indices have been developed based on the S&P GSCI (1) the S&P
GSCI Spot Index, which is based on price levels of the contracts included in the S&P
GSCI; (2) the S&P GSCI Excess Return Index (S&P GSCI ER), which incorporates the
returns of the S&P GSCI Spot Index as well as the discount or premium obtained by
rolling hypothetical positions in such contracts forward as they approach delivery; (3)
the S&P GSCI Total Return Index (S&P GSCI TR), which incorporates the returns of the
S&P GSCI ER and interest earned on hypothetical fully collateralized contract positions
on the commodities included in the S&P GSCI; and (4) the S&P GSCI Futures Price
Index (S&P GSFPI), which is intended to serve as a benchmark for the fair value of the
futures contracts on the S&P GSCI traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME).

S&P Dow J ones Indices also calculates a number of sub-indices representing components
of the S&P GSCI. These include the S&P GSEN (reflecting the energy components of
the S&P GSCI), S&P GSNE (all components other than energy), S&P GSAG
(agriculture), S&P GSLV (livestock), S&P GSIN (industrial metals) and S&P GSPM
(precious metals) as well as other sub-indices. Excess Return and Total Return sub-
indices are also calculated and published on each of these market sectors.

Goldman Sachs first began publishing the GSCI, as well as the related indices, in 1991.
In addition, although the GSCI was not published prior to that time, Goldman Sachs has
calculated the historical value of the GSCI and related indices beginning on J anuary 2,
1970, based on actual prices from that date forward and the selection criteria,
methodology and procedures in effect during the applicable periods of calculation (or, in
the case of all calculation periods prior to 1991, based on the selection criteria,

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 9
methodology and procedures adopted in 1991). The GSCI has been normalized to a
value of 100 on J anuary 2, 1970, in order to permit comparisons of the value of the GSCI
to be made over time. Futures contracts on the GSFPI, as well as options on such futures
contracts, began trading on the CME in J uly 1992. S&P Dow J ones Indices acquired the
indices in February 2007.

S&P Dow J ones Indices calculates and publishes the value of the S&P GSCI, the S&P
GSFPI, the S&P GSCI ER and the S&P GSCI TR, as well as each of the sub-indices,
continuously on each business day, with such values updated every 15 seconds. In
addition, a number of data vendors publish S&P GSCI quotations. S&P Dow J ones
Indices publishes an official daily settlement price for each of the indices and sub-indices
on each S&P GSCI Business Day at approximately 3:45 PM, Eastern Time. Further,
quotations for futures contracts and options on futures contracts on the S&P GSFPI,
which are traded on the CME, are published by the CME on a continuous basis and are
available through a number of data vendors.
I.4 Index Committee
S&P Dow J ones Indices has established an Index Committee to oversee the daily
management and operations of the S&P GSCI, and is responsible for all analytical
methods and calculation in the indices. The Committee is comprised of full-time
professional members of S&P Dow J ones Indices staff. At each meeting, the Committee
reviews any issues that may affect index constituents, statistics comparing the
composition of the indices to the market, commodities that are being considered as
candidates for addition to an index, and any significant market events. In addition, the
Index Committee may revise index policy covering rules for selecting commodities, or
other matters.

S&P Dow J ones Indices considers information about changes to its indices and related
matters to be potentially market moving and material. Therefore, all Index Committee
discussions are confidential.

All references to methodology-related decisions made by S&P Dow J ones Indices in this
document represent decisions made by the Index Committee.
I.5 Commodity Index Advisory Panel
S&P Dow J ones Indices has established a Commodity Index Advisory Panel to assist it in
connection with the operation of the S&P GSCI. The Panel meets on an annual basis and
at other times at the request of the Index Committee. The principal purpose of the Panel
is to advise the Index Committee with respect to, among other things, the calculation of
the S&P GSCI, the effectiveness of the S&P GSCI as a measure of commodity futures
market performance and the need for changes in the composition or methodology of the
S&P GSCI. The Panel acts solely in an advisory and consultative capacity; the Index
Committee makes all decisions with respect to the composition, calculation and operation
of the S&P GSCI. Certain members of the Panel may be affiliated with clients of S&P
Dow J ones Indices. Also, certain members of the Panel may be affiliated with entities
which, from time to time, may have investments linked to the S&P GSCI, either through

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 10
transactions in the Contracts included in the S&P GSCI, futures contracts on the S&P
GSCI or derivative products linked to the S&P GSCI.
I.6 Definitions
As used in this methodology, the following terms have the meanings indicated:

Active Contract. A liquid, actively traded Contract with respect to a Designated
Contract and Contract Expiration, as defined or identified by the relevant Trading Facility
or, if no such definition or identification is provided by the Trading Facility, as defined
by standard custom and practice in the industry.

Annual Calculation Period. The 12-month period ending on August 31
st
of the calendar
year immediately preceding the S&P GSCI Year for which the composition of the S&P
GSCI is being determined. If not all of the necessary data are reasonably available at the
time of the annual determination of the composition and weighting of the S&P GSCI, the
Annual Calculation Period is be the most recent 12-month period for which such data are
available, as determined by S&P Dow J ones Indices.

Annual Observation Period. With respect to each Annual Calculation Period, the three
12-month periods, consisting of the Annual Calculation Period and the two 12-month
periods immediately preceding.

Average Contract Reference Price (ACRP). For any Annual Observation Period and
with respect to a particular Contract, the average of the Daily Contract Reference Prices
for the First Nearby Contract Expiration on the last day of each month during that Annual
Observation Period on which such price is available.

Contract. Any contract that is traded on or through a Trading Facility and that provides
for physical delivery of, or is based on the price of, a deliverable commodity. For this
purpose, the term Contract does not include any contract based on the spread,
differential or other relationship between different delivery months, locations, or other
terms or features of the underlying commodity or contracts on such commodity.

Contract Business Day. A day on which (i) the Trading Facility on or through which a
Designated Contract Expiration is traded is scheduled to be open for trading for at least
three hours, (ii) such Contract Expiration is available for trading during the hours referred
to in clause (i) (as defined by the rules or policies of the Trading Facility, or if not so
defined, as defined by S&P Dow J ones Indices) and (iii) a Daily Contract Reference
Price for such Contract Expiration is published by the Trading Facility. An early closing
of the Trading Facility or an early closing of trading in such Contract Expiration will not
affect the characterization of a day as a Contract Business Day, provided that the
circumstances set forth in (i) through (iii) exist.

Contract Daily Return (CDR). On any given S&P GSCI Business Day, the amount
determined by dividing the Total Dollar Weight Obtained on such Day by the Total
Dollar Weight Invested on the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day. This value is
represented as the percentage change in the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI.


S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 11
Contract Expiration. A date or term specified by the Trading Facility on or through
which a Contract is traded, during or after which such Contract will expire, or delivery or
settlement will occur. The contract expiration may, but is not required to, be a particular
contract month.

Contract Production Weight (CPW). With respect to each Designated Contract, an
amount calculated according to the rules in section III, based on world production and
trading volume; provided that when calculating the composition of the S&P GSCI, the
CPW of any Contract that is part of a prospective index composition shall be determined
based on such prospective index composition. The final CPWs are rounded to seven
digits of precision.

Contract Roll Weight (CRW). With respect to the calculation of the S&P GSCI on any
given S&P GSCI Business Day other than during a Roll Period, and for each Designated
Contract Expiration, a factor of 1.0 if such Designated Contract Expiration is the First
Nearby Contract Expiration and zero for all other Designated Contract Expirations.
During a Roll Period, the Contract Roll Weight for the First Nearby Contract Expiration
or the Roll Contract Expiration will be either 1.0, 0.8, 0.6, 0.4, 0.2, or zero, determined
according to the procedure set forth in section VI.2(c) of this methodology, depending on
the portion of the First Nearby Contract Expiration that has been rolled into the Roll
Contract Expiration, and will be zero for all other Designated Contract Expirations.

Daily Contract Reference Price (DCRP). With respect to each Contract Expiration and
Contract Business Day, the price of the relevant Contract, expressed in U.S. dollars, that
is generally used by participants in the related cash or over-the-counter market as a
benchmark for transactions related to such Contract. The Daily Contract Reference Price
may, but is not required to, be the price (i) used by such Trading Facility or related
clearing facility to determine the margin obligations (if any) of its members or
participants or (ii) referred to generally as the reference, closing or settlement price of the
relevant Contract. If a Trading Facility publishes a daily settlement price for a particular
Contract Expiration, such settlement price will generally serve as the Daily Contract
Reference Price for such Contract Expiration unless S&P Dow J ones Indices determines
such settlement price does not satisfy the criteria set forth in this definition. The Daily
Contract Reference Price of a Contract may be determined and published either by the
relevant Trading Facility or by one or more third parties.

Designated Contract. A particular Contract included in the S&P GSCI for a given S&P
GSCI Period, based on the eligibility criteria set forth in section II of this methodology.
All references to the term Designated Contract in this methodology shall be deemed to
include all Designated Contract Expirations with respect to the Contract in question.

Designated Contract Expiration. A Contract Expiration with respect to a Designated
Contract that has been designated by S&P Dow J ones Indices for inclusion in the S&P
GSCI.

Dollar Weight. On any given S&P GSCI Business Day and with respect to any
Designated Contract and its First Nearby Contract Expiration and Roll Contract
Expiration, the product of (i) the CPW of such Contract, (ii) the Daily Contract Reference

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 12
Price for the appropriate Contract Expiration or Expirations on such day, and (iii) the
Contract Roll Weight of the appropriate Contract Expiration.

FIA Reports. The Monthly Volume Report and the International Report published by
the Futures Industry Association.

First Nearby Contract Expiration. In connection with the calculation of the S&P GSCI
on any given S&P GSCI Business Day, the first available Designated Contract Expiration
(after the date or term on or during which the calculation is made), provided that the Roll
Period with respect to such Designated Contract Expiration has not yet been completed.
After the completion of the Roll Period, the Designated Contract Expiration that was the
Roll Contract Expiration becomes the First Nearby Contract Expiration. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, with respect to any Designated Contract whose last trading day occurs on
or before the eleventh (11
th
) S&P GSCI Business Day of the month, the First Nearby
Contract Expiration is the second available Designated Contract Expiration (after the date
or term on or during which the calculation is made).

Interim Calculation Period. With respect to any Monthly Observation Date, the three-
month period ending on the last day of the month immediately preceding the date on
which such Monthly Observation Date is scheduled to occur.

Investment Support Level (ISL). The targeted amount of investment in the S&P GSCI
and related indices, expressed in U.S. dollars, that S&P Dow J ones Indices, in
consultation with the Index Advisory Panel, reasonably believes may need to be
supported by liquidity in the relevant Designated Contracts, based on the estimated
aggregate outstanding level of investment in S&P GSCI-related investments. The
Investment Support Level generally will not reflect the actual levels of such investment
and will generally include amounts estimated to have been invested in similar indices, as
well as any amount that is reasonably expected to be invested in the S&P GSCI or related
or similar indices within the next 12-month period. For this purpose, similar indices
means indices of physical commodities (or futures contracts or other derivatives on such
commodities) that S&P Dow J ones Indices, in consultation with the Index Advisory
Panel, determines can reasonably be used by market participants to achieve trading and
investment objectives that are substantially similar to those for which the S&P GSCI is
used. The ISL is currently set at US$ 230 billion.

Limit Price. On any Contract Business Day, a Daily Contract Reference Price for the
First Nearby Contract Expiration or the Roll Contract Expiration that represents the
minimum or maximum price for such Contract Expiration on such Day, as determined by
the rules or policies of the relevant Trading Facility (if any).

Monthly Observation Date. As determined by S&P Dow J ones Indices, the earliest day
in each calendar month (except for the month in which the composition of the S&P GSCI
for the next S&P GSCI Year is determined) on which the data necessary to perform the
calculations and make the determinations required pursuant to Section III.6 of this
methodology are available. If such day is not an S&P GSCI Business Day, it is the next
S&P GSCI Business Day. If S&P Dow J ones Indices determines such data are not
available on or before the last day of such month, the Monthly Observation Date may
change.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 13

Normalizing Constant (NC). The divisor determined in the manner set forth in section
V of this methodology that is used in calculating the value of the S&P GSCI on any given
S&P GSCI Business Day in order to assure the continuity of the Index over time and to
enable comparisons to be made between the values of the Index at various times.

Overall Trading Window (OTW). With respect to any Contract, the period of time
during which such Contract is available for trading.

Percentage Dollar Weight. With respect to any Designated Contract, the Dollar Weight
of such Contract divided by the Total Dollar Weight (TDW) of the relevant index.

Percentage TQT. With respect to each Designated Contract, an amount equal to the
Total Quantity Traded (TQT) of such Contract divided by the aggregate of the TQTs of
all the Designated Contracts on the same S&P GSCI Commodity. If there is only one
Designated Contract on an S&P GSCI Commodity, its Percentage TQT is one (1).

Reference Dollar Weight. With respect to any Contract, the product of (i) the CPW of
such Contract, multiplied by (ii) the applicable Average Contract Reference Price.

Reference Percentage Dollar Weight. With respect to any Contract, the quotient of (i)
the Reference Dollar Weight of such Contract, and (ii) the sum of the Reference Dollar
Weights of all Designated Contracts, provided that, when calculating the composition of
the S&P GSCI, the Reference Percentage Dollar Weight of any Contract that is part of a
prospective index composition is determined based on such composition.

Related Contract. With respect to any Contract (the First Contract), another Contract
traded on the same or a different Trading Facility (the Second Contract) that provides for
final settlement, at expiration or maturity of the Second Contract, based upon the final
settlement price of the First Contract. A Second Contract will be considered a Related
Contract only if (i) the TDVT of the Second Contract is greater than or equal to US$ 30
billion; and (ii) the TQT of the Second Contract over the relevant Calculation Period is
greater than or equal to 25% of the TQT of the First Contract over such Period.

Roll Contract Expiration. On any given S&P GSCI Business Day, with respect to each
Designated Contract and the calculation of the S&P GSCI, it is the Contract Expiration
that becomes the First Nearby Contract Expiration on the first S&P GSCI Business Day
of the month following the month during which the calculation is made.

Roll Period. With respect to any Designated Contract, the period of five (5) S&P GSCI
Business Days beginning on the fifth (5
th
) and ending on the ninth (9
th

result of a calculation of the CPW for each Designated Contract on the relevant S&P
GSCI Commodity, according to the procedure set forth in sections III.4 and III.5 of this
methodology. The TVM Reweighting Level is the same for all Designated Contracts and
is currently set at 50.

TVM Threshold (TVMT). The TVM level, specified by S&P Dow J ones Indices,
which triggers a recalculation of the CPWs for all Designated Contracts on a given S&P
GSCI Commodity according to the procedure set forth in section III.4 of this
methodology, if the TVM of any such Contract falls below such level. The TVM
Threshold is currently set at 30.

TVM Upper Level (TVMUL). The TVM level, specified by S&P Dow J ones Indices,
which triggers the exclusion of one or more Designated Contracts on a given S&P GSCI
Commodity from the S&P GSCI according to the procedure set forth in section II.5(b) of
this methodology, if the average of the TVMs of all the Designated Contracts on such
Commodity exceeds such level. The TVM Upper Level is currently set at 200 for those
Contracts that are not currently included in the S&P GSCI at the time of determination
and at 400 for those Contracts that are currently included in the S&P GSCI at the time of
determination. The time of determination may be either a Monthly Observation Date or
the time of the annual determination of the composition of the S&P GSCI.

determined, which is defined as the most recent five year period for which complete
world production data for all S&P GSCI Commodities are available from sources
determined by S&P Dow J ones Indices to be reasonably accurate and reliable at the time
the composition of the S&P GSCI is determined. For the year 2013 the S&P GSCI WPQ
Period is the five-year period from 2005 to 2009.

II. Identification of Contracts for Inclusion in the
S&P GSCI

II.1 Overview of Identification Process
The Contracts to be included in the S&P GSCI for a given S&P GSCI Year must satisfy
several sets of eligibility criteria. First, S&P Dow J ones Indices identifies those contracts
that meet the general criteria for eligibility (section II.2). Second, the Contract volume
and weight requirements are applied (sections II.3 and II.4) and the number of Contracts
is determined (section II.5), which serves to reduce the list of eligible Contracts. At that
point, the list of Designated Contracts for the relevant S&P GSCI Year is complete and
the process moves to the determination of the production weights, as discussed in the
next section of this methodology.
II.2 General Eligibility Requirements
In determining the Contracts to be included in the S&P GSCI for a given S&P GSCI
Year, S&P Dow J ones Indices first identifies the Contracts that satisfy the general
eligibility criteria set forth below. These criteria are intended only to identify Contracts
with characteristics (e.g., dollar denomination) that will facilitate the calculation of the
S&P GSCI and are consistent with the general purposes of the S&P GSCI as a
benchmark for commodity market performance and a tradable index. This process
generally produces a substantial list of Contracts potentially eligible for inclusion in the
S&P GSCI. The list is narrowed through the application of the more specific criteria
described below. The sources of the information used to determine the Contracts that
satisfy the general eligibility criteria are identified in section II.7.

The general eligibility criteria are the following:

II.2(a) Non-Financial Commodities. To be eligible for inclusion in the S&P GSCI, a
Contract must be on a physical commodity and may not be on a financial commodity
(e.g., securities, currencies, interest rates, etc.). The Contracts on a particular commodity
need not require physical delivery by their terms in order for the commodity to be
considered a physical commodity.

The S&P GSCI is intended in part to measure performance in the physical commodity
markets and to correlate with general price movements in the world economy. The
limitation to Contracts on physical commodities and the exclusion of Contracts on
financial commodities serve to limit the eligible commodities to those Contracts on
commodities that are the subject of production or distribution processes in the world
economy and that have a direct effect on price levels and inflation.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 18
II.2(b) Certain Contract Characteristics. In order for a Contract to be eligible for
inclusion in the S&P GSCI, the following criteria must be satisfied: (i) the Contract must
have a specified expiration or term or provide in some other manner for delivery or
settlement at a specified time, or within a specified time period, in the future; and (ii) the
Contract must, at any given point in time, be available for trading at least five months
prior to its expiration or such other date or time period specified for delivery or
settlement; and (iii) the Trading Facility on which the Contract is traded must allow
market participants to execute spread transactions, through a single order entry, between
the pairs of Contract Expirations included in the S&P GSCI that, at any given point in
time, will be involved in the rolls to be effected in the next three Roll Periods.

The requirements in this section reflect the fact that some of the products from time to
time traded on or through Trading Facilities, in particular certain electronic platforms,
may not display traditional characteristics of a futures contract, such as particular contract
months. While it is not necessary for a Contract Expiration to be expressed as a calendar
month, the S&P GSCI and its underlying methodology are premised upon the existence
of specified dates or time periods for delivery or settlement. It is assumed that Contracts
traded on contract markets, exempt electronic trading facilities, derivatives transaction
execution facilities, exempt boards of trade and foreign boards of trade (as such terms are
defined in the U.S. Commodity Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated
thereunder) will generally satisfy the above requirements, unless S&P Dow J ones Indices
determines that any such Contract does not satisfy the foregoing criteria. The
requirement that the Contract be available for trading at least five months prior to its
expiration is designed to ensure that a genuine trading market in the Contract exists prior
to the time established for delivery or settlement, when trading conditions can be affected
by the impending expiration of the Contract. The final requirement in this Section,
regarding execution of spread transactions, is designed to allow market participants to
effect the rolling of contracts included in the S&P GSCI more efficiently.

II.2(c) Denomination and Geographical Requirements. To be eligible for inclusion in
the S&P GSCI, a Contract must be denominated in U.S. dollars and traded on or through
a Trading Facility that has its principal place of business or operations in a country that is
a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
during the relevant Annual Calculation Period or Interim Calculation Period.

The requirement that Contracts be U.S. dollar denominated facilitates the calculation and
consistency of the S&P GSCI, since numerous currency conversions and other
adjustments would need to be made in order to accommodate contracts denominated in
other currencies. The requirement that a Contract be traded on or through a Trading
Facility in an OECD country assures that the S&P GSCI will be limited to those
commodities for which there are Trading Facilities in industrialized countries.

II.2(d) Availability of Daily Contract Reference Prices.
i. For a Contract to be eligible for inclusion in the S&P GSCI, Daily Contract
Reference Prices for such Contract generally must have been available on a
continuous basis for at least two years prior to the proposed date of inclusion. In
appropriate circumstances, S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine that a shorter
time period is sufficient or that historical Daily Contract Reference Prices for such

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 19
Contract may be derived from Daily Contract Reference Prices for a similar or
related Contract.
ii. At and after the time a particular Contract is included in the S&P GSCI, the Daily
Contract Reference Price for such Contract must be published between 10:00 AM
and 4:00 PM, Eastern Time, on each Contract Business Day by the Trading Facility
on or through which it is traded and must generally be available to all members of, or
participants in, such Facility (and S&P Dow J ones Indices ) on the same Contract
Business Day from the Trading Facility or through a recognized third-party data
vendor. Such publication must include, at all times, Daily Contract Reference Prices
for at least one Contract Expiration that is five months or more from the date the
determination is made, as well as for all Contract Expirations during such five-month
period.
The requirement that a Contract have a continuous price history of at least two years is
intended to ensure the reliability and availability of the prices necessary to enable S&P
Dow J ones Indices to calculate the S&P GSCI. In addition, in order to calculate the S&P
GSCI on an ongoing basis, S&P Dow J ones Indices must be able to obtain Daily Contract
Reference Prices for certain Contract Expirations with respect to each Designated
Contract prior to the S&P GSCI Settlement Time on each Contract Business Day. This
requirement is intended to assure that the value of the S&P GSCI can be reliably
calculated based on prices that are both announced and, in general, readily available to
the members of, or participants in, the relevant Trading Facility (and S&P Dow J ones
Indices).

II.2(e) Availability of Volume Data. For a Contract to be eligible for inclusion in the
S&P GSCI, volume data with respect to such Contract must be available, from sources
satisfying the criteria specified in Section II.7(b), for at least the three months
immediately preceding the date on which the determination is made.

II.2(f) Other Requirements with respect to Trading Facilities. The Trading Facility
on or through which a Contract is traded must:
(i) make price quotations generally available to its members or participants (and to
S&P Dow J ones Indices) in a manner and with a frequency that is sufficient to
provide reasonably reliable indications of the level of the relevant market at any
given point in time;
(ii) make reliable trading volume information available to S&P Dow J ones Indices
with at least the frequency required by S&P Dow J ones Indices to make the
monthly determinations described in section II.6;
(iii) accept bids and offers from multiple participants or price providers (i.e., it must
not be a single-dealer platform); and
(iv) be accessible by a sufficiently broad range of participants. Such access may be
provided either (a) by the Trading Facility making clearing services reasonably
available, thereby eliminating counterparty credit considerations, or (b) by a
network of brokers or dealers who are willing to intermediate transactions with
third parties, thereby enabling such third parties to enter into transactions based
on prices posted on such Facility.


S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 20
These requirements are intended to establish certain minimum standards for Trading
Facilities. If trading in certain commodities is shifted to electronic platforms that are
largely unregulated, or subject to different levels or types of regulation than traditional
exchanges, these standards will serve to ensure that the S&P GSCI includes only
Contracts for which sufficient and reliable data, and in particular price data developed in
a competitive process, are available. It is assumed that contract markets and foreign
boards of trade (as such terms are defined in the U.S. Commodity Exchange Act and the
rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) will generally satisfy the above
requirements, unless S&P Dow J ones Indices determines otherwise.

II.2(g) Contract Trading Hour Requirements. S&P Dow J ones Indices may exclude
a Contract from the S&P GSCI that otherwise satisfies the criteria and conditions for
inclusion if it finds such Contract's Overall Trading Window is insufficient to support the
tradability of the S&P GSCI taken as a whole.

This requirement is intended to support and enhance the tradability of the S&P GSCI, by
ensuring that all Designated Contracts are available for trading during at least a minimum
period of time.
II.3 Total Dollar Value Trading Requirement
The S&P GSCI is limited to those Contracts that are actively traded in order to assure that
the prices generated by the markets for such Contracts represent reliable, competitive
prices. The Contracts that satisfy the general eligibility requirements set forth in section
II.2, therefore, must also satisfy the volume trading requirements described below before
being included in the S&P GSCI.

In order to be added to the S&P GSCI, a Contract that is not included in the S&P GSCI at
the time of determination (which may be either a Monthly Observation Date or the time
of the annual determination of the composition of the S&P GSCI), and is based on a
commodity that is not represented in the S&P GSCI at such time, must have an
annualized Total Dollar Value Traded, over the relevant Annual Calculation Period or
Interim Calculation Period, of at least US$ 15 billion.

In order to continue to be included in the S&P GSCI, a Contract already in the S&P GSCI
at the time of determination, and that is the only Designated Contract on the relevant S&P
GSCI Commodity, must have an annualized Total Dollar Value Traded of at least US$ 5
billion over the relevant Annual Calculation Period or Interim Calculation Period, and of
at least US$ 10 billion during at least one of the three Annual Observation Periods.

In order to be added to the S&P GSCI, a Contract that is not in the S&P GSCI at the time
of determination, and is based on a S&P GSCI Commodity on which there are one or
more Designated Contracts already in the S&P GSCI at such time, must have an
annualized Total Dollar Value Traded, over the relevant Annual Calculation Period or
Interim Calculation Period, of at least US$ 30 billion.

In order to continue to be included in the S&P GSCI, a Contract that is already in the
S&P GSCI at the time of determination, and is based on a S&P GSCI Commodity on
which there are one or more Designated Contracts already in the S&P GSCI at such time,

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 21
must have an annualized Total Dollar Value Traded of at least US$ 10 billion over the
relevant Annual Calculation Period or Interim Calculation Period, and of at least US$ 20
billion during at least one of the three Annual Observation Periods.

For these purposes, in determining whether a particular Contract is included in the S&P
GSCI, any changes in the composition of the S&P GSCI that have been determined
according to the procedures set forth in this methodology, but that have not yet become
effective, shall be deemed to have been already made.

Notwithstanding any provisions to this methodology, the Total Dollar Value Traded
(TDVT) and Total Quantity Traded (TQT) of any Contract are calculated based on the
relevant volume of such Contract together with the volume of any Related Contract. Any
other modifications to the definitions included in this methodology that are necessary are
deemed to have been made for purposes of calculating the relevant TDVTs and TQTs.

The Total Dollar Value Traded measures the extent to which a commodity is the subject
of Contract trading. Analyzing this feature through the use of dollar values is free from
contract-dependent characteristics such as contract size and, thus, makes it possible to
compare the results for all Contracts. The minimum TDVT requirement, therefore,
further enhances the tradability of the S&P GSCI by excluding those Contracts that do
not represent sufficient trading activity in the relevant commodity.
II.4 Reference Percentage Dollar Weight Requirement
In addition to the volume requirements described above, in order to be included in the
S&P GSCI a Contract must have a minimum Reference Percentage Dollar Weight.

In order to continue to be included in the S&P GSCI, at the time of determination, a
Contract must have a Reference Percentage Dollar Weight of at least 0.10%.

In order to be added to the S&P GSCI, a Contract must have a Reference Percentage
Dollar Weight of at least 1.00% at the time of determination.

In determining whether a particular Contract is included in the S&P GSCI, any changes
in the composition of the Index that have been determined according to the procedures set
forth in this methodology, but that have not yet become effective, shall be deemed to
have been already made.

The Reference Percentage Dollar Weight is calculated based on the proposed
composition of the S&P GSCI determined according to the procedures set forth above.
Any Contract that does not satisfy the applicable Reference Percentage Dollar Weight
requirement is excluded from such proposed composition, and the CPWs of the
remaining Contracts are recalculated according to the procedure set forth in section III.4,
until the proposed S&P GSCI contains only Contracts that satisfy the applicable
Reference Percentage Dollar Weight requirements. This provision is designed to enhance
the tradability of the S&P GSCI by eliminating those Contracts that would account for de
minimis percentages of the S&P GSCI, thereby requiring traders to maintain and roll
small positions.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 22
II.5 Determination of the Number of Contracts
II.5(a). Determination of Commodity Groups. S&P Dow J ones Indices will from time
to time determine which commodities, based on such factors as physical characteristics,
trading, production, use or pricing, are sufficiently related to constitute a single S&P
GSCI Commodity for purposes of the methodology and procedures described in this
methodology.

II.5(b). Selection of Contracts on the same S&P GSCI Commodity and among
several S&P GSCI Commodities. In the event that two or more Contracts on the same
S&P GSCI Commodity satisfy the eligibility criteria set forth above, such Contracts are
included in the S&P GSCI in the order of their respective TQTs, with the Contract
having the highest TQT being included first. No further Contracts are included if such
inclusion results in the TVM for such Commodity exceeding the TVM Upper Level.

If under the procedure set forth in the preceding paragraph, additional Contracts could be
included with respect to several S&P GSCI Commodities at the same time, the procedure
is first applied to the S&P GSCI Commodity that has the lowest TVM at the time of
determination. Subject to the other eligibility criteria, the Contract with the highest TQT
on such Commodity is included. Before any additional Contract on any S&P GSCI
Commodity is included, the TVMs for all S&P GSCI Commodities are recalculated.
The selection procedure described above is, then, repeated with respect to the Contracts
on the S&P GSCI Commodity that then has the lowest TVM.

Notwithstanding the above or any other provisions of this methodology, the TVM of any
Contract and all other measures related to the TVM are calculated based on the relevant
volume of such Contract together with the volume of any Related Contract. Any other
modifications to the definitions included in this methodology that are necessary in order
to implement such calculations are hereby deemed to have been made for purposes of
calculating the relevant TVMs.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, between the First and a Related Contract, only the
Contract with the greater TQT over the relevant Calculation Period is included in the
S&P GSCI.

As described above, within each commodity group, the order in which additional
Contracts are added is based on the TQTs of the relevant Contracts. If the Contracts on
a particular S&P GSCI Commodity have sufficient liquidity to support the portion of the
S&P GSCI that is attributable to such Commodity (as measured by the TVM), then no
further Designated Contracts on such Commodity are necessary. If, however, the TVM of
such Commodity is relatively low, it may be necessary or appropriate to include
additional Contracts as Designated Contracts. This serves to spread the liquidity
attributable to the relevant S&P GSCI Commodity across a broader range of Contracts,
thereby enhancing the tradability of the S&P GSCI. However, no additional Contracts
are added if their addition would cause the TVM of the relevant S&P GSCI Commodity
to exceed the TVM Upper Level. In those circumstances, no further liquidity in the
relevant S&P GSCI Commodity is necessary.


S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 23
II.6 Intra-Year Changes in the Composition of the S&P GSCI
As described in greater detail in section III.6, the composition of the GSCI is reviewed on
a quarterly basis during any given S&P GSCI Year. If on any Monthly Observation
Date, the TVM of any Designated Contract is below the TVM Threshold for the relevant
S&P GSCI Year, the composition of the S&P GSCI with respect to the S&P GSCI
Commodity underlying such Contract will be re-determined.
II.7 Sources of Information
The following are the sources of the information used to determine the eligibility of
Contracts for inclusion in the S&P GSCI pursuant to the requirements set forth in
sections II.2(b) through II.2(g). If any of the sources identified below is unavailable with
respect to the determination of the S&P GSCI for a particular S&P GSCI Year, S&P Dow
J ones Indices will identify appropriate alternative sources and the composition of the
S&P GSCI for such S&P GSCI Year will be based on such alternative sources. In
addition, if S&P Dow J ones Indices believes that one or more of the sources identified
below contains a manifest error, it may use an alternative source to obtain the necessary
information. Any such alternative sources used by S&P Dow J ones Indices will be
publicly disclosed at the time that the composition of the S&P GSCI for the next S&P
GSCI Year is announced.

II.7(a) General Eligibility Requirements. The identification of those commodities that
satisfy the general eligibility requirements set forth in section II.2 is based on the FIA
Reports that are published with respect to the relevant Annual Calculation Period or
Interim Calculation Period, and in the most recent version of the Futures and Options
Fact Book, published by the Futures Industry Institute, available on the date of
determination. The determination as to whether a particular Trading Facility has its
principal place of business or operations in an OECD country is based on the most recent
data published by the OECD available on the date of determination.

II.7(b) Contract Volume and Liquidity Requirements. In order to determine whether
a particular Contract satisfies the volume and liquidity requirements described above,
S&P Dow J ones Indices may use any available sources that it believes to be reasonably
reliable including, but not limited to, data contained in the FIA Reports. In the event of
manifest error, S&P Dow J ones Indices may supplement, and make corrections to, any
such data.

Volume data used to determine whether a particular Contract is eligible to be included in
the S&P GSCI are the data for the relevant Annual Calculation Period or Interim
Calculation Period, provided that in the case of a Contract that has been trading for fewer
than 12 months, the determination is made based on data for the period of time during
which the Contract has been trading, with such data being annualized.

Volume data with respect to a given Contract are calculated based on the volumes of all
Contract Expirations of such Contract that have been traded within the relevant Annual
Calculation Period or Interim Calculation Period.

II.7(c) Adjustments in Special Circumstances. In applying volume data for purposes
of calculating the S&P GSCI, S&P Dow J ones Indices may make any such adjustments
as it believes to be reasonably necessary in order to take into account any unique or
unusual factors with respect to the relevant S&P GSCI Commodity.

III. Calculation of the Contract Production
Weights

III.1 Overview of the Contract Production Weights
The S&P GSCI is a production-weighted index, designed to reflect the relative
significance of each of the constituent commodities to the world economy, while
preserving the tradability of the index by limiting eligible Contracts to those with
adequate liquidity. In addition to determining the list of Designated Contracts S&P Dow
J ones Indices ascertains the quantity of each such Designated Contract to be included in
the S&P GSCI, i.e. the Contract Production Weights (CPWs). The calculation of the
CPWs of the Designated Contracts involves a four-step process: (1) determination of the
World Production Quantity (WPQ) of each S&P GSCI Commodity (section III.2); (2)
determination of the World Production Average (WPA) of each S&P GSCI Commodity
over the WPQ Period (section III.3); (3) calculation of the CPW based on the Contract's
percentage of the relevant TQT (section III.4); and (4) certain adjustments to the CPWs
(sections III.5 and III.6). The procedure for selecting the data sources from which the
WPQs, WPAs, and CPWs are derived is described in section III.7.
III.2 World Production Quantities
III.2(a) Determination of WPQs. The WPQ of each S&P GSCI Commodity is equal
to the total world production of the S&P GSCI Commodity (except as otherwise set forth
in this section) over the WPQ Period.

The use of the five-year WPQ Period (and the averaging of that five-year period to
determine the WPAs) is intended to mitigate the effect of any aberrational years with
respect to the production of a particular commodity. For example, if a given commodity
is produced primarily in one part of the world that suffers damage from hurricanes or
earthquakes in a particular year, resulting in curtailed production levels, the use of that
year's production figures might not accurately reflect the significance of the commodity
to the world economy. Commodity production in a particular year may also be higher or
lower than would normally be the case as a result of general production cycles, supply
and demand cycles, or worldwide economic conditions. Measuring production levels
over a five-year period should generally smooth out any such aberrational years.

The definition of the WPQ Period imposes a delay of approximately one-and-one-half
(1 ) years between the end of the WPQ Period and the end of the relevant Annual
Calculation Period. This delay is because world production statistics are often
incomplete and subject to revision after their original publication. Imposing a delay on
the WPQ Period generally enhances their accuracy and reliability.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 26
The WPQ Period is defined as the most recent five-year period for which complete world
production data is available for all S&P GSCI Commodities from sources determined by
S&P Dow J ones Indices to be reasonably accurate and reliable. This procedure is
intended to assure that the same WPQ Period is used for all S&P GSCI Commodities,
which allows comparisons between production figures to be made without taking into
account temporary aberrations in different time periods.

III.2(b) Livestock Production Quantities. The annual production quantity for cattle,
which is stated in terms of carcass weight, is converted into an equivalent quantity of live
cattle by multiplying the production quantity of cattle for a given year by the ratio of live
weight of cattle to the dressed weight of cattle (ALW/ADW) for that year, based on
sources selected pursuant to section III.7.

In addition, cattle and hog production quantities are based on world industrial production
data, rather than total world production data, derived from sources selected pursuant to
section III.7.

III.2(c) Orange Juice Production Quantities. The annual production quantity for
orange juice, which is stated as boxes of oranges produced, is converted into an
equivalent quantity of pounds of solid frozen concentrated orange juice by multiplying
the production quantity of oranges for a given year, in metric tons, by a conversion factor
to convert to pounds, and dividing by the number of pounds of oranges per box. The
result is, then, multiplied by the ratio of gallons of orange juice per box of oranges and by
the ratio of pounds of solid frozen concentrated orange juice per gallon of orange juice
for that year, based on sources selected pursuant to section III.7.

The Designated Contracts on live cattle and frozen concentrated orange juice are based
on live weights of cattle and pounds of solid frozen concentrated orange juice,
respectively. As a result, the conversion that must be made with respect to each of these
commodities differs somewhat from the conversion made in connection with other
Designated Contracts. For this reason, special provisions have been implemented for
these conversions. The ALW/ADW ratio used in adjusting the annual livestock
production quantity is derived from U.S. statistics, although this ratio is applicable to
cattle production throughout the world. Similarly, the conversion ratio used in adjusting
the annual production quantity of orange juice is derived from Florida statistics, although
this ratio is applicable to orange juice production throughout the world.

In addition, the production data for live cattle and lean hogs used in calculating the S&P
GSCI are based on industrial production rather than total world production. This is
because a significant portion of total world livestock production is used for local
consumption and never enters distribution and production channels. As a result, the
inclusion of world production in determining the CPWs would overstate the importance
of livestock to the world economy. It is possible that in the future S&P Dow J ones
Indices will conclude that it is appropriate to use industrial production figures for other
commodities, where available. Any such determination will be publicly announced prior
to its effectiveness.

III.2(d) Regional Production Data. If an S&P GSCI Commodity is primarily a
regional commodity, based on its production, use, pricing, transportation or other factors,

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 27
S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine the WPQ of such S&P GSCI Commodity based
on regional, rather than world, production. At present, natural gas is the only S&P GSCI
Commodity where the WPQ is determined based on regional (North American)
production.

Certain commodities, such as natural gas, are primarily regional commodities, due to the
prohibitive cost of transporting such commodities from one part of the world to another
or for other reasons. In such instances, it might not be appropriate to determine the WPQ
of the commodity based on world production data. For this reason, the definition of the
term S&P GSCI Commodity in this methodology includes any group of commodities
that, based on such factors as physical characteristics, trading, production, use or pricing,
is determined by S&P Dow J ones Indices to be sufficiently related to constitute a single
commodity. In those cases in which an S&P GSCI Commodity is a regional commodity,
S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine the WPQ of such Commodity based on regional
production data.
III.3 World Production Averages
The WPA of each S&P GSCI Commodity is equal to its WPQ over the WPQ Period,
divided by five. The WPA is simply the average annual production amount of the S&P
GSCI Commodity based on the WPQ over a five-year period.
III.4 Contract Production Weights
In calculating the CPW of each Designated Contract on a particular S&P GSCI
Commodity, the WPA of such Commodity is allocated to those Designated Contracts that
can best support liquidity.

With respect to each Designated Contract, the CPW is equal to (i) the Percentage TQT
for such Contract multiplied by (ii) the WPA of the underlying S&P GSCI Commodity
(after any necessary conversion made for purposes of the calculation) and divided by (iii)
1,000,000. However, if the calculation of the CPWs for the Designated Contracts on a
particular S&P GSCI Commodity results in the TVM of such Contracts being below the
TVM Reweighting Level, then the CPWs for all such Contracts are reduced until the
TVM of such Contracts is equal to the TVM Reweighting Level. This is achieved by
setting the TVM for each such Contract at the TVM Reweighting Level, and reducing the
CPW for such Contract accordingly. The adjustment procedure is designed to ensure that
the CPW of each Designated Contract is at a level sufficient to support trading activity in
the S&P GSCI, but not disproportionately high. The final CPWs are rounded to seven
digits of precision. The new CPWs are implemented at the beginning of each S&P GSCI
Period according to the rolling procedure set forth in section VI.2(d).
III.5 CPW Adjustment Procedure
The following procedure is used to adjust the CPWs of Designated Contracts, under the
circumstances described above:
1. Determine the set A of all Designated Contracts to be re-weighted. If the set A is
empty, then no adjustment is necessary.

III.6 Monthly Review of Index Composition
On each Monthly Observation Date, S&P Dow J ones Indices calculates the TVM of each
Designated Contract, based on volume data for the relevant Interim Calculation Period.
If on any such Date, the TVM of any Designated Contract is below the TVM Threshold,
S&P Dow J ones Indices adjusts the composition of the S&P GSCI, with respect to the
S&P GSCI Commodity underlying such Contract (but not with respect to any other S&P
GSCI Commodities), according to the following principles:
a. All eligible Contracts, whether previously included in the S&P GSCI or not, on such
Commodity as of such Date are identified, based on the eligibility criteria and subject
to the limits set forth in section II.
b. The CPWs of all Contracts so identified are determined according to the procedure
set forth in sections III.4 and III.5, provided that the Percentage TQT for each such
Contract is determined based on volume data for the relevant Interim Calculation
Period for which such data are available for all Contracts on the relevant S&P GSCI
Commodity.
c. At the beginning of the new S&P GSCI Period following the foregoing adjustments,
the S&P GSCI is re-normalized according to the procedure set forth in section V.
In order to maintain the liquidity and tradability of the S&P GSCI throughout each S&P
GSCI Year, this section provides a mechanism to review and reallocate the distribution of
CPWs among the Designated Contracts on a particular S&P GSCI Commodity in the
course of such Year, if there has been a significant decline in the liquidity of any such
Contract. Any such reallocation may result in new Contracts on the same S&P GSCI
Commodity being included in the S&P GSCI, or Designated Contracts that have been
previously included in the S&P GSCI being excluded. For this purpose, the liquidity of

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 29
each Designated Contract is measured by its Trading Volume Multiple, which is
calculated and reviewed on each Monthly Observation Date.

If any changes are made to the composition of the S&P GSCI (including changes
regarding the relative weight of any Designated Contract) according to the procedure
described above, the manner in which such changes are effected are determined by S&P
Dow J ones Indices, based on market conditions and other relevant factors, and publicly
announced as soon as reasonably practicable, which is expected to be at least three weeks
prior to the implementation of such changes.
III.7 Sources of Information
III.7(a) Sources of Information for the Determination of CPWs. S&P Dow J ones
Indices decides the sources of information used in determining the CPWs for a given
S&P GSCI Period. S&P Dow J ones Indices will generally use the same sources of
information used to determine the CPWs for or during the immediately preceding S&P
GSCI Year. If such sources are not reasonably available or do not contain the necessary
information, or if S&P Dow J ones Indices determines the information included in any
such sources is inaccurate, unreliable or contains manifest error, S&P Dow J ones Indices
will identify alternative sources of information. To the extent practicable, S&P Dow
J ones Indices will publicly announce the sources used to determine the CPWs for or
during a given S&P GSCI Period at the time that the composition of the S&P GSCI and
the calculation of the CPWs for such Period are announced.

III.7(b). Sources of Conversion Factors. The factors used to effect the conversions
mentioned in section III.2, which are necessary in order to convert the units of
measurement used in the WPQs into the units of measurement used with respect to the
applicable Contracts are derived from publicly available sources selected by S&P Dow
J ones Indices.

III.7(c) Sources for Cattle Adjustment Factors. The factor used to make the
adjustment mentioned in section III.2(b), with respect to the conversion of dressed weight
for cattle into live cattle weight, is derived from publicly available sources selected by
S&P Dow J ones Indices, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural
Statistics.

III.7(d) Sources for Orange Juice Adjustment. The factor used to make the
adjustment mentioned in section III.2(c), with respect to the conversion of boxes of
oranges produced into pounds of solid frozen concentrated orange juice, is derived from
publicly available sources selected by S&P Dow J ones Indices, such as the USDA
Florida Agricultural Statistics Citrus Summary.

IV. Designated Contract Expirations

IV.1 Use of Designated Contract Expirations in Calculating the S&P GSCI
As indicated above, the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI can only be determined
based on the prices of actual Contracts. Because Designated Contracts by definition call
for delivery or settlement on specified dates or during specified terms, it is necessary to
determine the Designated Contract Expirations that will be included in the S&P GSCI in
order to identify the appropriate prices of such Contracts to be used in calculating the
value of the S&P GSCI. The identification of the Designated Contract Expirations during
a given S&P GSCI Year is made by S&P Dow J ones Indices at the time that the
composition of the S&P GSCI for such Year is determined or when contracts are added.
This section of the methodology sets forth the procedures for determining the Designated
Contract Expirations for each Designated Contract.
IV.2 Identification of Designated Contract Expirations
S&P Dow J ones Indices determines the Designated Contract Expirations for each
Designated Contract during a given S&P GSCI Year, provided that each such Designated
Contract Expiration must be an Active Contract.

With respect to certain Contracts, a number of Contract Expirations have historically
exhibited low trading volumes and are generally regarded as inactive. This may be due to
seasonal cycles of supply and demand in the underlying commodity or other production,
distribution, or economic factors. Inactive Contracts, although available for trading,
might not generate accurate and reliable market prices because of the low level of trading
activity. For this reason, the S&P GSCI is calculated only based on the prices of Active
Contracts.

Once a Contract Expiration is identified as a Designated Contract Expiration, the S&P
GSCI is calculated based on such Contract Expiration for the given S&P GSCI Year,
according to the procedures set forth in section VI of this methodology. However, if
S&P Dow J ones Indices determines during the course of an S&P GSCI Year that a
Contract Expiration that has been included as a Designated Contract Expiration is no
longer an Active Contract, such Designated Contract Expiration will be deleted from the
S&P GSCI for the remainder of that S&P GSCI Year. Conversely, if a new Contract is
added to the S&P GSCI on an intra-year basis, S&P Dow J ones Indices will identify the
Designated Contract Expirations with respect to such Contract for the remainder of the
relevant S&P GSCI Year.


S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 31
IV.3 Failure to Trade Designated Contract Expirations
IV.3(a) Deletion of Designated Contract Expirations. If a Trading Facility deletes a
Contract Expiration that is a Designated Contract Expiration, such Contract Expiration
will no longer constitute a Designated Contract Expiration for the remainder of the S&P
GSCI Year in which the deletion occurs. The S&P GSCI will be calculated based on the
remaining Designated Contract Expirations for the rest of the relevant S&P GSCI Year.

IV.3(b) Delay in Trading of Designated Contract Expirations. If two consecutive
Designated Contract Expirations for a particular Designated Contract have not been made
available for trading on or through the relevant Trading Facility at least six months prior
to the date on which the Roll Period is scheduled to begin, with respect to the first of
these two Designated Contract Expirations, pursuant to section VI.2(c), S&P Dow J ones
Indices will determine what action should be taken. Such action may include a decision
to delete the Designated Contract Expirations or the Designated Contract from the S&P
GSCI for the remainder of the S&P GSCI Year, or a to include such Contract Expirations
or Designated Contract if the Designated Contract Expiration is made available by a
specified date.

In unusual situations, a Trading Facility may not officially delete or replace Designated
Contracts on a particular commodity but may, nevertheless, delay the availability of
Contracts for particular expirations by the time the Designated Contract Expirations for
the next S&P GSCI Year are determined. The provision set forth above is designed to
address this type of unusual situation. Any action taken will be publicly announced prior
to the effective date of the change in the composition of the S&P GSCI.

For example, if the Designated Contract Expirations for a given Designated Contract are
scheduled to include the month of J uly, and the respective Trading Facility deletes the
J uly Contract Expiration for that year but an August Contract Expiration is made
available for trading, the S&P GSCI will be calculated based on the August Contract
Expiration, subject to the rolling procedures set forth in section VI.2(c) of this
methodology, provided that the August Contract Expiration had been made available for
trading sufficiently early as specified in section II.2(d).
IV.4 Replacement of Contracts
If trading in all Contract Expirations with respect to a particular Designated Contract is
terminated, or the relevant Trading Facility announces that no additional Contract
Expirations will be made available with respect to a Designated Contract, an eligible
replacement Contract on the relevant S&P GSCI Commodity may be included in the S&P
GSCI. To the extent practicable, any such replacement will be in effect on the next
Monthly Observation Date, and according to the procedure set forth in section III.6.

If another Contract replaces a Designated Contract and the timing or procedure
contemplated above is not practicable, a determination will be made as to the date from
which the S&P GSCI will be calculated using the replacement Contract. In making this
determination, S&P Dow J ones Indices expects to take into account a number of factors,
including any differences between the existing Contract and the replacement Contract
specifications, Contract Expirations, and other matters. These factors may make it

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 32
necessary or advisable to effect the transfer from the existing Contract to the replacement
Contract over a series of days. It is anticipated that such a transfer will be implemented
in a manner similar to the rolling of the S&P GSCI that takes place during each Roll
Period, as described in section VI.2(c).

If a replacement contract is to be included in the S&P GSCI, S&P Dow J ones Indices will
publicly announce the manner in which the transfer from the existing Contract to the
replacement Contract will be implemented, and whether the CPWs of the other
Designated Contracts on the relevant S&P GSCI Commodity and/or the Normalizing
Constant will be recalculated.


S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 33
V. The Normalizing Constant

V.1 Purpose of the Normalizing Constant
In order to assure continuity of the S&P GSCI and to allow comparisons of the value of
the S&P GSCI to be made over time, it is necessary to make an adjustment to the
calculation of the S&P GSCI each time the CPWs are changed. The factor used to make
this adjustment is the Normalizing Constant (NC) and is used in the same manner as
similar factors applied to the calculation of other published financial market indices. The
NC is determined each time the composition of the S&P GSCI is changed pursuant to the
procedures set forth in this methodology.
V.2 Calculation of the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI on Non-Roll Days
The formula for calculating the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI on any S&P GSCI
Business Day that does not occur during a Roll Period is the following:

=
c
c
d
c
d d
) DCRP CPW ( TDW

where:
c =the Designated Contract
d =the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the calculation is made
DCRP =the Daily Contract Reference Price

The Total Dollar Weight, which forms the basis for the calculation of the Normalizing
Constant, is equal to the sum of the Dollar Weights of all Designated Contracts. The
Dollar Weight of each Designated Contract is in turn calculated by multiplying the
appropriate CPW by the applicable Daily Contract Reference Price (DCRP) on the day
on which the calculation is made. Accordingly, the formula above can generally be used
to calculate the Total Dollar Weight. However, during a Roll Period, as described in
section VI.2 of this methodology, the S&P GSCI is calculated based on the DCRP of the
First Nearby Contract Expiration and the Roll Contract Expiration of each Designated
Contract, reflecting the fact that the S&P GSCI is being rolled from one Contract
Expiration to the next.

As a result, the calculation of the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI during a Roll
Period is adjusted to reflect the fact that different DCRPs are used for each Designated
Contract (e.g., the respective DCRP of the First Nearby Contract Expiration and the Roll
Contract Expiration). The formula for calculation of the Total Dollar Weight during a
Roll Period (other than a J anuary Roll Period or any other Roll Period in which a re-
weighting is implemented) is set forth in section VI.3(a). Further, because the roll

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 34
implemented in J anuary (and in any other Roll Period in which a re-weighting is
implemented) involves changes not only in the Contract Roll Weights but also the CPWs,
a special formula is needed for calculation of the Total Dollar Weight during such Roll
Periods. This formula is set forth in section VI.3(b).
V.3 Calculation of the Normalizing Constant
V.3(a) The Total Dollar Weight Ratio. The Total Dollar Weight Ratio is calculated

V.3(b) The Normalizing Constant. With respect to a given S&P GSCI Period, the
Normalizing Constant (NC

) is calculated on the last S&P GSCI Business Day of the
previous S&P GSCI Period and is equal to the product of (i) the Normalizing Constant
for the S&P GSCI Period ending on such day (NC

) and (ii) the Total Dollar Weight
Ratio on such day, based on the Daily Contract Reference Price of the First Nearby
Contract Expiration for each Designated Contract on such Day. The Normalizing
Constant is rounded to seven digits of precision.

The formula for calculating the Normalizing Constant is the following:

TDWR * NC NC old new =

Methodology 35
VI. Calculation of the S&P GSCI and Related
Indices

VI.1 Overview of the Calculation Process
Because the S&P GSCI is designed as a tradable index that can be used to replicate actual
commodity market performance, the calculation of the S&P GSCI takes into account the
fact that a person holding positions in the First Nearby Contract Expiration of each
Designated Contract would need to roll such positions forward as they approach
settlement or delivery. For this reason, the methodology for calculating the S&P GSCI
includes a rolling procedure designed to replicate the rolling of actual positions in the
Designated Contracts. Moreover, because the rolling of actual positions in a Designated
Contract on a single day could be difficult to implement or, if completed on a single day,
could have an adverse impact on the market, such rolling would most likely take place
over a period of several days. The rolling of the S&P GSCI into new Designated
Contract Expirations (Roll Contract Expirations), therefore, similarly takes place over
periods of several days, which constitute the Roll Periods. The calculation of the S&P
GSCI, consequently, takes into account price levels of the First Nearby Contract
Expiration on each S&P GSCI Commodity and, during the Roll Periods, price levels of
the Roll Contract Expirations as well. Once the Roll Period has been completed, the Roll
Contract Expiration becomes the First Nearby Contract Expiration.

In contrast, the S&P GSCI ER represents the return of a portfolio of commodity futures
contracts, the composition of which reflects the CPWs of all Designated Contracts and
the CRWs of all Designated Contract Expirations. The S&P GSCI ER is, therefore,
calculated based on the Contract Daily Return.

The S&P GSCI TR reflects the performance of a total return investment in commodities
Contract Daily Return plus the daily interest on the funds hypothetically committed to
the investment.

The S&P GSFPI is designed as a measure of the fair value of the S&P GSCI CME
Futures Contracts and, therefore, does not reflect the rolling of the hypothetical positions
in the S&P GSCI Commodities included in the S&P GSCI. In addition, the S&P GSFPI
is calculated based on the CPWs and NC scheduled to be in implemented on the first
S&P GSCI Business Day of the month in which the first available S&P GSCI CME
Futures Contract expires, which might not be the same as the CPWs and NC in effect on
the day of calculation.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 36
VI.2 Calculation of the S&P GSCI
VI.2(a) Daily Calculation of the S&P GSCI. The value of the S&P GSCI on each
S&P GSCI Business Day is equal to the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI divided
by the Normalizing Constant. The value of the S&P GSCI is calculated on each S&P
GSCI Business Day at such time as Daily Contract Reference Prices for the relevant
Contract Expirations become available but, in any event, by no later than the S&P GSCI
Settlement Time. The Daily Contract Reference Price for each First Nearby Contract
Expiration or Roll Contract Expiration used in calculating the S&P GSCI is determined
according to the procedure set forth in section VI.2(b). The S&P GSCI is indexed to a
value of 100 on J anuary 2, 1970.

In formulaic terms, the calculation of the S&P GSCI is as follows, with the results of
such calculation rounded to seven digits of precision:

NC
TDW
GSCI P & S
d
d
=

The S&P GSCI, above, is the S&P GSCI Spot Index. The S&P GSCI Spot Index reflects
only the prices of the First Nearby Contract Expirations, and during a Roll Period, the
Roll Contract Expirations, on each S&P GSCI Business Day. The value of the S&P
GSCI, therefore, is calculated solely based on the CPW of each Designated Contract, and
of the Daily Contract Reference Prices of the First Nearby Contract Expiration and/or the
Roll Contract Expiration of each Designated Contract. These components together
constitute the Total Dollar Weight (TDW) of the S&P GSCI. The TDW of the S&P
GSCI is, then, divided by the Normalizing Constant to assure index continuity.

VI.2(b) Determination of Daily Contract Reference Prices. The Daily Contract
Reference Prices used in performing the calculations described in any of the provisions of
this methodology are the most recent Daily Contract Reference Prices of the First Nearby
Contract Expirations or Roll Contract Expirations as made available by the relevant
Trading Facility to its members or participants (and S&P Dow J ones Indices) as of the
S&P GSCI Settlement Time on the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the calculation is
made, subject to the following:

i. If the relevant Trading Facility fails to make available a Daily Contract Reference
Price on a day that is a Contract Business Day, or if S&P Dow J ones Indices
determines the available Daily Contract Reference Price reflects a manifest error, the
relevant calculation is delayed until such time as such Price is made available or
corrected. If a Daily Contract Reference Price has not been made available or the
error has not been corrected, by the relevant Trading Facility by 04:00 PM, Eastern
Time, S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine the appropriate Daily Contract
Reference Price for the relevant Designated Contract for purposes of calculating the
S&P GSCI. In that event, S&P Dow J ones Indices will disclose the basis for its
determination of such Daily Contract Reference Price
ii. If any S&P GSCI Business Day is not a Contract Business Day with respect to any
Designated Contract Expiration, then the calculations will be made based on the most

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 37
recently available Daily Contract Reference Price for the First Nearby Contract
Expiration or Roll Contract Expiration on the most recent Contract Business Day,
regardless of whether such Contract Business Day is also a S&P GSCI Business Day.
iii. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, if the Daily Contract
Reference Price for any Contract Expiration on any S&P GSCI Business Day is
corrected or finally made available by the relevant Trading Facility sufficiently early
on the next S&P GSCI Business Day to enable S&P Dow J ones Indices to recalculate
the S&P GSCI, then the value of the S&P GSCI for such S&P GSCI Business Day
will be recalculated based on such Daily Contract Reference Price.
iv. A Daily Contract Reference Price determined according to the procedure set forth in
this section will be used in calculating the S&P GSCI regardless of whether such
Price is a Limit Price.

VI.2(c) Contract Roll Weights and Roll Contract Expirations. In calculating the
Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI during a Roll Period, the Contract Roll Weights of
the First Nearby Contract Expiration and the Roll Contract Expiration of each S&P GSCI
Commodity are equal to: (i) on the first day of the Roll Period with respect to such
Commodity, 0.8 and 0.2, respectively; (ii) on the second day of the Roll Period, 0.6 and
0.4, respectively; (iii) on the third day of the Roll Period, 0.4 and 0.6 respectively; (iv) on
the fourth day of the Roll Period, 0.2 and 0.8, respectively; and (v) on the fifth day of the
Roll Period, 0.0 and 1.0, respectively, subject to the provisions of section VI.2(d).

This section specifies the procedures for rolling the First Nearby Contract Expiration of
each Designated Contract into the appropriate Roll Contract Expiration. The roll is
essentially implemented by adjusting the Contract Roll Weights of each of the First
Nearby Contract Expiration and the Roll Contract Expiration, on each day of the Roll
Period, in a manner that shifts the calculation of the S&P GSCI by a pro rata amount per
day from the First Nearby Contract Expiration to the Roll Contract Expiration for each
Designated Contract. The roll is reflected in the modified procedures for determining the
Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI during a Roll Period (sections VI.3(a) and V.3(b)).

VI.2(d) Adjustment of Roll Period. On any S&P GSCI Business Day, the occurrence
of any of the following circumstances will result in an adjustment of a Roll Period
according to the procedure set forth in this section:
i. if such S&P GSCI Business Day is not a Contract Business Day with respect to any
First Nearby Contract Expiration or Roll Contract Expiration;
ii. the applicable Daily Contract Reference Price of any such Contract Expiration on
such S&P GSCI Business Day is a Limit Price;
iii. S&P Dow J ones Indices determines the Daily Contract Reference Price published by
a Trading Facility for a particular Designated Contract Expiration reflects manifest
error and such error is not corrected by the S&P GSCI Settlement Time, or the
Trading Facility for any reason fails to publish a Daily Contract Reference Price for
such Contract Expiration by 04:00 PM, Eastern Time. If the day is otherwise a
Contract Business Day and the circumstances described in clauses (ii) and (iv) of this
section do not exist with respect to such Contract Expiration on the relevant day,
S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine the appropriate Daily Contract Reference
Price for the relevant Designated Contract and determine the rolling of the S&P

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 38
GSCI based on such Daily Contract Reference Price. S&P Dow J ones Indices will
disclose the basis for its determination of such Daily Contract Reference Price. If the
Trading Facility makes availablea Daily Contract Reference Price or corrected Daily
Contract Reference Price for such Contract Expiration prior to the opening of trading
in such Contract Expiration on the next Contract Business Day, then the rolling of the
portion of the S&P GSCI implemented on the prior S&P GSCI Business Day will be
revised based on such Daily Contract Reference Price; or
iv. trading in the relevant Contract Expiration for such S&P GSCI Business Day is
terminated prior to the time at which, as of the opening of trading on such Day (as
defined under the rules or policies of the relevant Trading Facility), trading in such
Contract Expiration was scheduled to close, and trading in such Contract Expiration
does not resume at least 10 minutes prior to, and continue until, the scheduled closing
time (or the rescheduled closing time if such closing time was rescheduled as a result
of the termination).
In any such event, the portion of the roll that would otherwise have taken place on such
S&P GSCI Business Day will take place on the next Contract Business Day (provided
that such Day is also a S&P GSCI Business Day) on which none of the circumstances
identified in this section exist.

If on any day during a Roll Period the Daily Contract Reference Price of any First Nearby
Contract Expiration or Roll Contract Expiration is a Limit Price, no Daily Contract
Reference Price is available, or trading in the relevant Designated Contract is terminated
earlier than scheduled (and does not resume within the specified time period), the portion
of the roll that would otherwise have taken place on that day will be deferred until the
next day on which such circumstances do not exist. This limitation is based on the fact
that, under the circumstances described in this section, it would be difficult or impossible
to liquidate and/or establish actual positions in the market and to perform the roll.
Delaying the rolling of the S&P GSCI, therefore, serves to replicate the steps that would
need to be taken in rolling actual market positions.

Under this procedure, if any of the enumerated circumstances exists on the first day of the
Roll Period with respect to a First Nearby Contract Expiration or a Roll Contract
Expiration, then no portion of the roll will be performed and 40% of the roll will be
implemented on the next S&P GSCI Business Day. If such circumstances also exist on
the second S&P GSCI Business Day of the Roll Period, then 60% of the roll will be
performed on the third day, and so forth. If such circumstances exist throughout the five
S&P GSCI Business Days initially designated as the Roll Period, then the entire roll will
be performed on the next succeeding S&P GSCI Business Day on which none of these
circumstances exist. This roll procedure also applies to the rolling of the S&P GSCI into
the new CPWs and Normalizing Constant during the J anuary Roll Period, or during any
other Roll Period in which a re-weighting of the S&P GSCI is effected, as set forth in
section VI.3(b).

The only exception to the foregoing is that if the relevant Trading Facility makes
available a Daily Contract Reference Price that reflects manifest error, and such error is
not corrected by the S&P GSCI Settlement Time, or if the Trading Facility fails to make
available any Daily Contract Reference Price by 4:00 PM, Eastern Time, on a day on
which trading otherwise occurred (and none of the other conditions specified in section

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

VI.2(d) exist), S&P Dow J ones Indices may determine the Daily Contract Reference
Price to be used in implementing that day's roll. In such instances, S&P Dow J ones
Indices will disclose the basis for its determination. If the Trading Facility, then, makes
available a Daily Contract Reference Price or a corrected Daily Contract Reference Price
prior to the opening of trading on the next Contract Business Day, S&P Dow J ones
Indices will revise the calculation accordingly. This provision is intended to address the
unlikely situation in which trading has taken place on or through a Trading Facility
during the trading day, and market participants may therefore have rolled actual
positions, but the Trading Facility, due to communications or equipment failures or other
problems, publishes an erroneous Daily Contract Reference Price or fails to publish a
Daily Contract Reference Price by 04:00 PM, Eastern Time.
VI.3 Calculation of the S&P GSCI ER
VI.3(a) Calculation of TDW During a Roll Period. The formula for calculating the
Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI on any S&P GSCI Business Day that occurs
during a Roll Period (other than a J anuary Roll Period or any other Roll Period in which a
re-weighting of the S&P GSCI is effected) is the following:

where
c = each Designated Contract
d = the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the calculation is made
CRW1 = the Contract Roll Weight of the First Nearby Contract Expiration
CRW2 = the Contract Roll Weight of the Roll Contract Expiration
DCRP = the Daily Contract Reference Price of each respective Contract Expiration

On any S&P GSCI Business Day that does not occur during a Roll Period, the Total
Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI is calculated according to the procedure set forth in
section V.2. During a Roll Period, however, the Total Dollar Weight reflects the fact that
the S&P GSCI is being rolled from one Contract Expiration to the next. As a result, the
formula for Total Dollar Weight during a Roll Period must be adjusted to reflect the fact
that different Daily Contract Reference Prices are for each Designated Contract (i.e., the
respective Daily Contract Reference Prices of the First Nearby Contract Expiration and
the Roll Contract Expiration).

VI.3(b) Calculation of TDW in Connection with Changes in the Composition of the
S&P GSCI. The CPWs and NC for a given S&P GSCI Period are implemented during
the Roll Period of the calendar month in which such S&P GSCI Period begins. In
calculating the value of the S&P GSCI on each day of such Roll Period, (i) the Contract
Roll Weight of the First Nearby Contract Expiration of each Designated Contract, as
determined and adjusted in prior sections, is multiplied by the applicable Daily Contract
Reference Price of such Contract Expiration and the CPW of the relevant Designated
Contract for the prior S&P GSCI Period, and divided by the NC for the prior S&P GSCI
Period, and (ii) the Contract Roll Weight of the Roll Contract Expiration of each

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 40
Designated Contract, as determined and adjusted in prior sections, is multiplied by the
applicable Daily Contract Reference Price of such Contract Expiration and the CPW of
the relevant Designated Contract for the new S&P GSCI Period and divided by the NC
for such new S&P GSCI Period.

The formula for calculating the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI on any S&P GSCI
Business Day that occurs during the J anuary Roll Period, or during any other Roll Period
in which a re-weighting of the S&P GSCI is effected, is the following:



where
c = each Designated Contract
d = the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the calculation is made
CRW1 = the Contract Roll Weight of the First Nearby Contract Expiration
CRW2 = the Contract Roll Weight of the Roll Contract Expiration
CPW1 = the CPW of the First Nearby Contract Expiration
CPW2 = the CPW of the Roll Contract Expiration
DCRP = the Daily Contract Reference Price of each respective Contract Expiration

During the J anuary Roll Period, and during any other Roll Period in which a re-weighting
of the S&P GSCI is implemented, the S&P GSCI rolls into the new CPWs and NC during
the regularly scheduled monthly Roll Period. For example, on the first day of the J anuary
Roll Period, which is the fifth (5
th
) S&P GSCI Business Day of the month, 80% of the
S&P GSCI is calculated based on the CPWs and NC for the prior S&P GSCI Period and
20% of the S&P GSCI is calculated based on the CPWs and NC for the S&P GSCI
Period beginning on such Day. On the sixth (6
th
) through ninth (9
th
) S&P GSCI Business
Days, the percentages are 60/40, 40/60, 20/80 and 0/100, respectively. On the ninth (9
th
)
S&P GSCI Business Day, the roll is completed, unless the Roll Period is extended as a
result of the occurrence of one of the events specified in section VI.2(d).

In order to reflect this roll into the new CPWs and Normalizing Constant, the formula for
the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI requires the additional adjustments detailed
above. Specifically, because the CPWs of the First Nearby Contract Expiration and the
Roll Contract Expiration will be different, CPW1 and CPW2, as set forth above, must
enter the calculation. In addition, the result of this calculation must be multiplied by the
Total Dollar Weight Ratio, which reflects the change in the Total Dollar Weight resulting
from the shift to new CPWs and, therefore, when multiplied by CRW1 and CRW2, rolls
the S&P GSCI into the new CPWs and the new Normalizing Constant.

VI.3(c) Calculation of the Contract Daily Return. On any S&P GSCI Business Day,
the Contract Daily Return is equal to the ratio of the Total Dollar Weight Obtained
(TDWO) on such Day and the Total Dollar Weight Invested (TDWI) on the preceding
S&P GSCI Business Day, minus one.

Methodology 41
In formulaic terms, the Contract Daily Return is calculated as follows:

CDR

TDWI
TDWO

The principal component of the calculation of the S&P GSCI ER is the determination of
the Contract Daily Return (CDR) for a given S&P GSCI Business Day. The CDR is
calculated by reference to the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI. The Contract Daily
Return is generally defined as the percentage change in the Total Dollar Weight of the
S&P GSCI from one S&P GSCI Business Day to the next. The Contract Daily Return,
therefore, reflects the returns that would be realized by holding positions in the
Designated Contract Expirations, appropriately weighted to reflect the CPWs, from the
closing of the Trading Facilities on the prior day to the closing of such Trading Facilities
on the day on which the calculation is performed. This feature of replicating the
performance of actual market positions makes the S&P GSCI a tradable index.

As set forth in prior sections, the formula for calculation of the Total Dollar Weight of
the S&P GSCI on those days that occur during a Roll Period differs from the formula
used on other days. In addition, during the J anuary Roll Period, or any other Roll Period
in which a re-weighting of the S&P GSCI is implemented, a further adjustment to this
formula must be made.

Once the appropriate formula for calculating the Total Dollar Weight of the S&P GSCI is
determined, the Total Dollar Weight Invested, which reflects a hypothetical investment in
the S&P GSCI based on the CPWs, CRWs and Daily Contract Reference Prices on the
preceding S&P GSCI Business Day, and the Total Dollar Weight Obtained, which
reflects the return on the hypothetical investment and is calculated based on the CPWs
and CRWs in effect on the preceding day but on the Daily Contract Reference Prices
used to calculate the S&P GSCI on the current day, can be determined. The Contract
Daily Return can, then, be calculated by dividing the Total Dollar Weight Obtained on
the day on which the calculation is made by the Total Dollar Weight Invested of the
preceding day.

VI.3(d) Daily Calculation of the S&P GSCI ER. On any S&P GSCI Business Day,
the value of the S&P GSCI ER is equal to the product of (i) the value of the S&P GSCI
ER on the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day and (ii) one plus the Contract Daily Return
on the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the calculation is made. The value of the S&P
GSCI ER is indexed to a base value of 100 on J anuary 2, 1970. The result of the
foregoing calculation is then rounded to seven digits of precision.

In formulaic terms, the S&P GSCI ER is:

S&P GSCI ER
d
= ) CDR (1 ER GSCI P & S d 1 - d +

The S&P GSCI ER is calculated on a cumulative basis beginning with the first day for
which the S&P GSCI ER was calculated, which was J anuary 2, 1970. The value of the
S&P GSCI ER on any S&P GSCI Business Day, therefore, can be determined by

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 42
reference to the value on the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day and the Contract Daily
Return on the day of calculation.
VI.4 Calculation of the S&P GSCI TR
VI.4(a) The Treasury Bill Return. On any given calendar day, the Treasury Bill
Return is equal to:



The subscript d-1 on TBAR indicates that the Treasury Bill Rate used in the calculation is
the Rate available on the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day.

VI.4(b) Daily Calculation of the S&P GSCI TR. On any S&P GSCI Business Day,
the value of the S&P GSCI TR is equal to the product of (i) the value of the S&P GSCI
TR on the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day and (ii) one plus the sum of the Contract
Daily Return and the Treasury Bill Return on the S&P GSCI Business Day on which the
calculation is made and (iii) one plus the Treasury Bill Return for each non S&P GSCI
Business Day since the preceding S&P GSCI Business Day. The result of the foregoing
calculation is, then, rounded to seven digits of precision.

where days is the number of non S&P GSCI Business Days since the preceding S&P
GSCI Business Day. The S&P GSCI TR is set equal to 100 on J anuary 2, 1970.
VI.5 Calculation of the Sub-Indices
Each of the sub-indices reflecting portions of the S&P GSCI, the S&P GSCI ER, or the
S&P GSCI TR is calculated in the same manner as the respective index, except that: (i)
the Daily Contract Reference Prices, CPWs and Contract Roll Weights used in
performing such calculations are limited to those of the S&P GSCI Commodities
included in the relevant sub-index; and (ii) each sub-index has a separate Normalizing
Constant, which is calculated according to the procedures set forth in section V of this
methodology. The Dollar Weights and Daily Contract Reference Prices used in
calculating such Normalizing Constant are limited to those of the Designated Contracts
included in the relevant sub-index.

VI.6 Calculation of the S&P GSCI FPI Index
The S&P GSCI FPI is an index designed to mimic the S&P GSCI, with the following
exceptions:

1. The FPI Index does not incorporate the standard 5-day roll monthly period.
There is no roll period.
2. The index always has a 100% weight in the current contract, and always uses the
current Contract Production Weights (CPW) for the underlying contracts and
current Normalizing Constant (NC) based on the S&P GSCI to calculate the
index level through the 11
th
business day of the month. On the 12
th
business day
of the month, the current contracts, CPWs and NCs are changed to reflect the
current composition of the S&P GSCI.

The purpose of the S&P GSCI FPI Index is to serve as the underlying index for the S&P
GSCI Futures Contracts available for trade at CME Group, which expire on the 11
th

business day of every month. The index also serves as a benchmark for the fair value of
such futures contracts.
VI.7 CPWs for the S&P GSCI Reduced Energy Index, S&P GSCI Light Energy
Index, S&P GSCI Ultra-Light Energy Index, and S&P GSCI Non-Energy Index.
The S&P GSCI Reduced Energy Index, S&P GSCI Light Energy Index and S&P GSCI
Ultra-Light Energy Index are three indices that are comprised of the same Designated
Contracts as the S&P GSCI but whose Contract Production Weights (CPW) of all
Designated Contracts in the energy sector have been divided by two (S&P GSCI Reduced
Energy Index), by four (S&P GSCI Light Energy Index), or by eight (S&P GSCI Ultra-
Light Energy Index). Because the CPWs of energy-related S&P GSCI Commodities are
reduced in these indices, the relative weights of other S&P GSCI Commodities are
necessarily increased. As a result, although the S&P GSCI Reduced Energy Index, the
S&P GSCI Light Energy Index and the S&P GSCI Ultra-Light Energy Index contain all
of the S&P GSCI Commodities that are included in the S&P GSCI, they are not world-
production weighted in the same manner as the S&P GSCI. The S&P GSCI Non-Energy
Index excludes the energy commodities.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 50
Example for Calculating the Normalizing Constant
The Normalizing Constant becoming effective during the first Roll Period for the S&P
GSCI Year 2013 depends on the Daily Contract Reference Prices of the relevant
Designated Contracts on the 4th business day of J anuary. At the time of the compilation
of this methodology, such prices are obviously not available. Therefore, for
demonstration purposes, we carry on the calculation using the Average Contract
Reference Prices. The rules are described in section V.

Appendix B: S&P GSCI Policy Decisions

Determinations with Respect to the S&P GSCI and the Index Methodology
The following is a summary of determinations that were made by S&P Dow J ones
Indices, after a discussion of the issues and principal considerations with the, S&P GSCI
Index Committee, with respect to certain issues related to the S&P GSCI Commodity (the
S&P GSCI).

Item #1 Investment Support Level. The Investment Support Level (ISL) remains
unchanged at the current level of US$ 230 billion. The ISL is a measure of the liquidity
in the contracts included in the S&P GSCI that needs to be maintained in order to support
the level of investment in commodity indices.

Item #2 Trading Value Multiple Upper Level (TVMUL). The TVM Upper Level is
increasing from 300 to 400 for those Contracts that are currently included in the S&P
GSCI at the time of determination. The TVM level, specified by S&P Dow J ones
Indices, triggers the exclusion of one or more Designated Contracts on a given S&P
GSCI Commodity from the S&P GSCI according to the procedure set forth in section
II.5(b) of this methodology if the TVMs of all the Designated Contracts on such
Commodity exceeds such level.

Item #3 Related Contracts. Similar to the previous edition of this methodology, only
the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) traded WTI Crude contract and Henry Hub Swap
qualified as Related Contracts. For purposes of calculating the Total Dollar Value
Traded (TDVT) and Trading Value Multiples (TVM), the NYMEX traded WTI Crude
contract took into account the trading volume of the ICE WTI crude contract and the
NYMEX traded Natural Gas contract took into account the trading volume of ICE traded
Henry Hub Natural Gas cleared Swap.

S&P Dow J ones Indices will continue to monitor the trading volumes in these contracts
in order to determine whether further action is warranted. In addition, S&P Dow J ones
Indices will consider whether changes should be made to the S&P GSCI Methodology to
provide, on an ongoing basis, for the inclusion of trading volumes of related contracts in
calculating the TQTs of contracts included in the S&P GSCI.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 52
Appendix C: Calculation of S&P GSCI Forwards


S&P Dow J ones Indices calculates forward month versions of the S&P GSCI indices.
S&P GSCI forward indices measure the S&P GSCI Spot, Excess Return, and Total
Return indices based on First Nearby Contract Expirations that would be in the index on
the specified forward dates.

For example, on December 11, 2012 the Designated Contracts of the S&P GSCI three-
month forward include those Designated Contract Expirations which would be in the
S&P GSCI on March 11, 2013 -- i.e. the First Nearby Contract Expiration is moved
forward three-months.

The forward indices follow the same rules, weights and calculation methodology as the
S&P GSCI, with the exception that the Designated Contract Expirations are advanced
(contract months specified in Table 1) by the number of months identified by the specific
forward (1 through 5). There are five forward month versions of the S&P GSCI: one-
month forward, two-months forward, three-months forward, four-months forward, and
five-months forward.

S&P Dow Jones Indices: S&P GSCI

Methodology 53
Appendix D: Calculation of S&P GSCI, Non-US
Dollar Denominations


S&P Dow J ones Indices calculates a number of non-US dollar denominated versions of
the S&P GSCI. Currently, S&P GSCI versions for the five following currencies are being
calculated: the Australia Dollar (AUD), the Euro, the J apanese Yen, the Swiss Franc
(CHF) and the United Kingdom Pound (GBP). Based on the specific currency involved,
Hedged and Unhedged versions of the S&P GSCI Spot, S&P GSCI Excess Return, and
S&P GSCI Total Return are calculated. The Euro and Yen Unhedged versions of the
S&P GSCI represent the value of the S&P GSCI translated into the specific currency.
They are calculated by multiplying the previous days S&P GSCI currency index by the
ratio of the current underlying index level to the previous sessions underlying index
level, multiplied by the ratio of the current FX rate to the previous sessions FX rate.
The FX rates are obtained from WM using the 11:00 am NY (ET) rate.

The currency Hedged versions of the S&P GSCI offer an investment in the S&P GSCI
based on the specific currency, but with minimal exchange rate risk. The Hedged
indices are calculated by hedging the beginning-of-period balances using rolling one-
month forward contracts. This shields the hypothetical value of the index at the start of
each month from exchange rate fluctuations.

Appendix E: Calculation of the S&P GSCI
Enhanced Index


The S&P GSCI Enhanced Commodity Total Return Strategy Index applies certain
dynamic and seasonal rolling rules to specific commodity components of the S&P GSCI.
Although the S&P GSCI Enhanced Commodity Total Return Strategy Index includes the
same futures contracts as the S&P GSCI, the contract months will vary and the returns
and values will differ from the S&P GSCI. The five day roll begins on the first business
day of the month, and the closing futures prices on the 3
rd
to last business day of the
month are used to determine the dynamic roll check.

Most of the S&P GSCI futures contracts in the S&P GSCI Enhanced Index follow the
normal schedule with the following exceptions:

WTI crude oil rolls from the 1
st
contract month to the 6
th
contract month if the
contango between the 1
st
and 2
nd
contact month is more than 0.50%.
Brent crude oil rolls from the 2
nd
to the 7
th
contract month if the contango
between the 2
nd
and the 3
rd
contract month is more than 0.50%.
Heating oil is rolled only to the December contract annually (during the
November roll period).
Natural gas is rolled only to the J anuary contract annually (during the December
roll period).
Chicago Wheat is rolled only to the December contract annually (during the
November roll period).
Corn is rolled only to the J uly contract annually (during the May roll period).
Lean Hogs are rolled only to the April and August contracts biannually (April
during the J uly roll, and August during the March roll).
Live Cattle is rolled only to the April and October contracts biannually (April
during the September roll and October during the March roll).

The table on the following page identifies the Contracts included in the 2013 S&P GSCI
Enhanced Commodity Total Return Strategy Index that have specifically different
Designated Contract Expirations than the S&P GSCI. A methodology supplement for the
S&P GSCI Enhanced Index is available on the S&P Dow J ones Indices Web site at:

Appendix F: S&P GSCI Capped Indices


On September 22, 2009, S&P Dow J ones Indices announced the launch of the S&P GSCI
Capped family of indices. These are commodity indices which limit constituent weights
and provide greater diversification for investors and structured product providers seeking
to comply with the European Union UCITS III directives.

The S&P GSCI Capped Indices institute periodic weight caps on the index constituents of
the S&P GSCI. All indices limit index constituent weights and, thus, provide versions of
the S&P GSCI that are more equally weighted among constituents. The S&P GSCI
Capped Indices are intended to be European Union UCITS (Undertakings for Collective
Investments in Transferable Securities) III directives compliant.

The S&P GSCI Capped Commodity, the S&P GSCI Capped Component and the S&P
GSCI Enhanced Capped Component Indices offer exposure to the 24 individual
commodities that make up the S&P GSCI, but with two distinct capping procedures.

The S&P GSCI Capped Commodity Index allows only one of the 24 commodities to
reach a maximum weight of 35%. The remaining commodities are capped at 20% while
maintaining continuity with the S&P GSCI sector weights.

The S&P GSCI Capped Component Index narrows the 24 S&P GSCI commodities to 18
components, and caps the highest component at 35%. The remaining components are
capped at 20% while maintaining continuity with the individual components of the S&P
GSCI without regard to the sector weights. Petroleum, wheat and cattle are the only
components that include more than one commodity.

The S&P GSCI Enhanced Capped Component Index is the S&P GSCI Enhanced Index
with the component weights capped based on the S&P GSCI Capped Component Index
methodology.

Individual methodology supplements for the S&P GSCI Capped Indices are available on
the S&P Dow J ones Indices Web site at: www.spindices.com.

Appendix G: S&P GSCI Covered Call Select Index


On October 7, 2010, S&P Dow J ones Indices announced the launch of the S&P GSCI
Covered Call Select Index, an innovative new index that offers investors exposure to
commodity price returns at lower levels of volatility. The Index satisfies the demand of
commodity investors seeking more stable, long-only exposure to commodity markets at a
time of historically high volatility.

The S&P GSCI Covered Call Select Index seeks to simulate a covered call strategy on
the commodities with the most active options markets included in the S&P GSCI. There
are 10 commodities included in the index: Coffee, Corn, Cotton, Crude Oil, Gold, Natural
Gas, Silver, Soybeans, Sugar, and Wheat. For each commodity, a covered call index is
created reflecting an investment in the rolling active futures contract and the systematic
writing of out-of-the-money calls on the same contract. It is calculated on a hypothetical
portfolio consisting of a long futures position and a short out-of-the-money call position,
both of which are rolled monthly. The 10 individual covered call indices are, then,
included in a composite covered call index on an equal-weighted basis, which is
rebalanced on a yearly basis during the J anuary roll period.

The S&P GSCI Covered Call Select Index is based on the S&P GSCI methodology and
forms part of the next generation of the S&P GSCI family of indices for commodity
investors.

A primer and methodology on the use of covered call index strategies has been published
by S&P Dow J ones Indices and can be found at: www.spindices.com. For complete

Appendix I: Calculation of the S&P GSCI Dynamic
Roll Alpha Light Energy


The S&P GSCI Dynamic Roll Alpha Light Energy index measures a long position in the
S&P GSCI Dynamic Roll Light Energy ER index and a short position in the S&P GSCI
Light Energy ER index (the benchmark index), on a market neutral basis.

The Index aims to measure the effects of the different roll strategies between the S&P
GSCI Dynamic Roll Light Energy index and the S&P GSCI Light Energy index while
neutralizing the market directional bias.

Long-Short Index
The index value is determined by measuring the difference between a long position in the
S&P GSCI Dynamic Roll Light Energy ER index and a short position in the S&P GSCI
Light Energy ER index.

Calculation
On each Index Level Determination Date, t, a reference index level is determined by the
following formula:

1 +


where:

Ref
t
= the Long-Short reference index level on date t,
Enhanced
t
= the S&P GSCI Dynamic Roll Light Energy ER index on date t,
Bench
t
