The investment seeks to provide investors with exposure to the Barclays US Treasury 2Y/10Y Yield Curve Index™. The Barclays US Treasury 2Y/10Y Yield Curve Index™ (the "index") employs a strategy that seeks to capture returns that are potentially available from a "steepening" or "flattening", as applicable, of the U.S. Treasury yield curve through a notional rolling investment in U.S. Treasury note futures contracts. The level of the index is designed to increase in response to a "steepening" of the yield curve and to decrease in response to a "flattening" of the yield curve.
The investment seeks a return linked to the performance of the price return version of the ISE High Income™ Index. The ETRACS Monthly Pay 2xLeveraged Closed-End Fund ETN due December 10, 2043 (the “Securities”) are a series of Monthly Pay 2xLeveraged Exchange Traded Access Securities (ETRACS) linked to the price return. The index measures the performance of 30 U.S. closed-end funds, as selected and ranked by the index sponsor in accordance with the index methodology.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the Double Short Euro Index. As the index is two-times leveraged, for every 1% weakening of the euro relative to the U.S. dollar, the level of the index will generally increase by 2%, while for every 1% strengthening of the euro relative to the U.S. dollar, the index will generally decrease by 2%.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
