Scenario IV    Volatile downward trend

In a volatile downward trend,

where the Index may generally move downward over a period
longer than 1 Business Day but with volatility, the Product‟s performance may be adversely affected in that the Product‟s performance may fall short of that of -1x the cumulative Index return. As illustrated in the scenario below, where the market fell by 11% over 5 days but with daily volatility, the Product‟s accumulated gains are 9% which is less than the 11% which is -1x the cumulative Index return.
