This and additional information can be found in the Funds’ prospectus, which may be obtained by calling 1-888-GX-FUND-1 (1.888.493.8631). PLEASE Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

The commission-free trades for Global X Funds ETFs must be placed online via the Trader Workstation platform only and they are not available through full service advisors.

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Securities focusing on a single country and narrowly focused investments may be subject to higher volatility. There are additional risks associated with investing in base and precious metals as well as their respective mining industries.  Place Trade does not advice clients regarding these particular ETFs and does not ffer any advice related to commodities or commodities trading.

The market value of companies in the oil industry are strongly affected by the levels and volatility of global oil prices, oil supply and demand, capital expenditures on exploration and production, energy conservation efforts, the prices of alternative fuels, exchange rates and technological advances. The Solactive Global Oil Equities Index measures the performance of oil companies and is intended to correlate with the price of oil itself. However, the securities of oil companies are not perfectly correlated with oil prices and may under- or over-perform the performance of oil prices over the short-term or the long-term.

Securities in certain Global X Funds ETFs’ portfolio must comply with a broad range of environmental laws and regulations. Additional or more stringent environmental laws and regulations may be enacted in the future and such changes could have a material adverse effect on a Global X Funds ETF's investments. The waste management and recovery and recycling industry can be significantly affected by demographic and urbanization trends, competition, environmental factors, technology developments, government regulation, and the availability and expense of environmental insurance. Negative developments of any of these factors could have a material adverse effect on Fund's investments.

For the avoidance of any doubt, please note that “pure gold miners” refers to the fact that the companies in the Underlying Index generate the vast majority of their business from gold mining. "Pure gold miners" does not refer in any way to the type or purity of the gold mined by these companies.

Regular ETF Commissions are the same as our regular stock commissions.  We do offer "commission free" ETFs as well however we believe that it is more important to find the appropriate ETF that is right for you than to simply look at the free commission status.   Because we offer extremely low commission rates as well as verified best execution to our clients we believe that we are able to pass the very best overall lowest trading cost on to you.

Please keep in mind that whenever you hear "free" (at any company) it does not always mean that the best price is being passed on to you.  We know that there is no such thing as a free lunch and we do not take rebates, soft dollars or any other type of payment in exchange for passing along "free trades." (We literally do not receive any compensation for offering these free ETFs but most firms do so please research the investments on their merits and do not get distracted by the free sign.)

 

*Investors should take special caution when using short and leveraged ETFs over and above understanding the risks of traditional ETFs.  ETFs may involve substantially more risk than may be realized.   ETFs and Traditional Mutual Funds are not the same type of investment.  Please take time to learn and understand what you are investing in prior to making investment decisions.  Review the prospectus or summary prospectus prior to investing.  View FINRA’s Investor Alert for more information on leveraged and inverse ETFs.
