Frequency Distribution of Premiums and Discounts
The performance data above represents past performance. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and value of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance may be lower or higher than performance data quoted. The NAVs reflected on this graph have not been adjusted for any particular day when the futures contracts held by the Underlying Funds were in a “lock limit” situation.
The above frequency distribution chart presents information about the difference between the daily market price for shares of the Fund and the Fund’s reported Net Asset Value. The amount that the Fund’s market price is above the reported NAV is called the premium. The amount that the Fund’s market price is below the reported NAV is called the discount. The market price is determined using the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund’s NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 p.m. ET). The horizontal axis of the chart shows the premium or discount expressed in basis points. The vertical axis indicates the number of trading days in the period covered by the chart. Each bar in the chart shows the number of trading days in which the Fund traded within the premium/discount range indicated.
