The Exchange also proposes to amend section 141 of the Amex Company Guide (‘‘Company Guide’’) regarding listing fees to accommodate the listing of Trust Units.5 As described in the Exchange’s proposal,6 the Fund’s primary investment objective is to seek total return through broad exposure to the commodities markets. The Fund’s secondary objective is to provide investors with monthly income and capital distributions not commonly associated with commodity investments. The Master Fund will invest in commodity futures and forward contracts, options on commodity futures and forward contracts, and over-the-counter (‘‘OTC’’) commodity options in the following commodity groups: energy, industrial metals, precious metals, livestock, agriculturals, and tropical foods and fibers and may in the future include other commodity investments that 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 56465 (September 19, 2007), 72 FR 54489 (‘‘Notice’’). 4 See letter to Nancy M.
