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.
