Trading on the stock exchange as a whole is subject to the level of liquidity of the market, which at times could be low especially if faced with volatility due to external developments. This liquidity situation may inhibit the Fund's ability to obtain shares in quantity without having a marked effect on the shares' market price and may further prevent the Fund from being able to liquidate a position at the prevailing market price.
