The TVI ® methodology is available here. Appendix A contains a list of amendments made to the index since its inception. Changes to an index methodology may have material impact on the results of the index, whether positive or negative.

No assurances can be made that the TVI® will achieve its objectives or that losses will be avoided. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Investors cannot invest directly in the TVI®. One of the risks associated with the TVI® is the complexity of the different factors which contribute to its results, as well as its correlation or non-correlation to other asset classes. The TVI® could decline in a wide range of different market scenarios, including ones in which other financial products rise substantially. Any factors which contribute to "trading ranges" (in which there is a lack of sustained, directional price movements in many markets) or “whipsaw” markets (in which price movements reverse suddenly or repeatedly) are likely to be adverse to the TVI®’s trend-following methodology. Investment products utilizing the TVI® are speculative and involve a substantial degree of risk. Products that utilize the TVI® should be considered long-term investments; over the short-term there is a much greater possibility that the products may decline substantially, causing significant losses. See “Summary of Risk Factors” in the Terms of Use.
