Market Conditions

Crude oil prices rose in Q1 2024 due to:

  • Geopolitical tensions raising supply disruption risks
  • Improving economic outlook boosting demand
  • OPEC+ production cuts tightening market balances

As a result, the DBIQ Optimum Yield Crude Oil Index gained 11.84% and the fund’s NAV increased 11.6%.

Investment Strategy

The fund aims to track its benchmark index by:

  • Investing in crude oil futures contracts
  • Holding US Treasuries and money market funds as collateral


  • Crude prices are expected to remain elevated in the near-term due to geopolitics and production limits.
  • However, an economic slowdown could soften demand and weigh on prices.
  • The fund will continue targeting exposure to its benchmark index through crude oil futures.

In summary, the Invesco DB Oil Fund gained over 11% in Q1 2024 as crude prices were boosted by supply risks and a positive demand outlook. Going forward, prices will likely stay high barring any economic downturns.
