    Shares of each CurrencyShares Trust may not be suitable for all
investors. The value of the shares of each CurrencyShares Trust relates
directly to the value of the foreign currency held by the particular
Trust. This creates a concentration risk associated with fluctuations in
the price of the applicable foreign currency. Accordingly, a decline in
the price of that currency will have an adverse effect on the value of
the shares of the particular CurrencyShares Trust. Factors that may have
the effect of causing a decline in the price of a foreign currency
include national debt levels and trade deficits, domestic and foreign
inflation rates, domestic and foreign interest rates, investment and
trading activities of institutions and global or regional political,
economic or financial events and situations. Shares of each
CurrencyShares Trust can be bought and sold through a broker; as such,
investors may be required to pay brokerage commissions in connection with
a purchase or sale. There can be no assurance that an active trading
market for the shares of any CurrencyShares Trust will develop or be
maintained. For a more complete discussion of risk factors applicable to
each CurrencyShares Trust, carefully read the particular Trust's
prospectus. 

    Not FDIC Insured - No Bank Guarantee - May Lose Value.

    (1) Diversification does not ensure a profit not eliminate the risk of
experiencing investment losses.
