Natural resources investments are generally volatile, with higher headline risk than other sectors. They tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events, and underlying commodity prices. The prices of natural resources investments are influenced by factors such as the costs of underlying commodities like oil, gas, metals, and coal. These investments may trade on various exchanges and experience price fluctuations due to short-term demand, supply, and investment flows.

Natural resource investments often respond more sensitively to global events and economic data, including natural disasters, political turmoil, pandemics, or the release of employment data.

Investing in foreign markets may carry greater risks than domestic markets, including political, currency, economic, and market risks. It is essential to evaluate if trading in low-priced and international securities is appropriate for your circumstances and financial resources. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

No investment process is risk-free, and profitability is not guaranteed; investors may lose their entire investment. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. Investing in foreign securities involves risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, and differing accounting standards, potentially leading to greater share price volatility. The prices of small- and mid-cap company stocks generally experience higher volatility than large-company stocks and may involve higher risks. Smaller companies may lack the management expertise, financial resources, product diversification, and competitive strengths needed to withstand adverse economic conditions.
