All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ProShares entail certain risks, including the use of aggressive investment techniques (futures contracts, options, forward contracts, swap agreements and similar instruments), imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage and market-price variance risks, all of which can increase volatility and decrease performance. ProShares are non-diversified and narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Short ProShares should lose value when their market indexes rise. There is no guarantee that any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective.
