    Gold settles higher, volatile after Fed decision

    MarketWatch - 01/28/2014
    Gold futures settled higher on Wednesday as fears of an emerging-market crisis and a sharp decline for equities on Wall Street buoyed the metal's investment appeal. But prices in electronic trading were volatile, moving below and then above the Comex closing level following the Federal Reserve's decision to cut its bond-buying program on Feb. 1 by another $10 billion a month to $65 billion.

More about Portfolio Composition
Free commission offer applies to online purchases of 65 iShares® ETFs and Fidelity ETFs in a Fidelity brokerage account with a minimum opening balance of $2,500. The sale of ETFs are subject to an activity assessment fee (of between $0.01 to $0.03 per $1000 of principal) by Fidelity. After September 30, 2013, 65 iShares ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity, if held less than 30 days. After January 31, 2014, Fidelity ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity, if held less than 30 days. See the brokerage commission and fee schedule (PDF) for details. *The chart illustrates the NAV performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the fund on 12/31/1999 or on commencement of operations (whichever is later). Figures include reinvestment of capital gains and dividends, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable sales charges or redemption fees, which would lower these figures. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance of the fund.

**The Overall Morningstar RatingTM for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a funds monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)

The performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted. Yield and return will vary, therefore you have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. Click on the "Performance & Risk" link to view quarter-end performance. Average annual total returns are historical and include change in share value and reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, if any. Cumulative total returns are reported as of the period indicated. Life of fund figures are reported as of the commencement date to the period indicated. Since ETFs are bought and sold at prices set by the market - which can result in a premium or discount to NAV- the returns calculated using market price (market return) can differ from those calculated using NAV (NAV return).

Top basket holdings are as of the date indicated and may not be representative of the funds current or future investments.
