Other Fund risks include market risk, equity risk, short sales and leverage risk, ETN risk, closed end fund risk, large cap risk, early closing risk, liquidity risk and trading risk. Short sales involve leverage because the Fund borrows securities and then sells them, effectively leveraging its assets. The use of leverage may magnify gains or losses for the Fund. Newly organized, the Fund has no trading history and there can be no assurance that active trading markets will be developed or maintained. Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not net asset value (NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm Eastern Time (when NAV is normally determined) and do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times. ETFs are subject to commission costs each time a buy or sell is executed.
