We have listed the ETNs on The Nasdaq Stock Market ( Nasdaq ) under the ticker symbol GLDI .1 The ETNs should be purchased only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of investing in a covered call strategy on GLD shares. The ETNs pay a monthly variable cash coupon based on the notional premiums received from selling the calls.
