The sale of ETFs is subject to an activity assessment fee (from $0.01 to $0.03 per $1,000 of principal). iShares ETFs and Fidelity ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity if held less than 30 days.

ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.

Keep in mind that investing involves risk. The value of your investment will fluctuate over time, and you may gain or lose money.

* Other fees and expenses applicable to continued investment are described in the fund’s current prospectus.

There is an Options Regulatory Fee of $0.04 per contract that applies to both option buy and sell transactions as well as an activity assessment fee (from $0.01 to $0.03 per $1,000 of principal) on sell transactions. Fees are subject to change.
