During the last three months, there was a significant surge in CHA's volatility from 13 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018. While there was a significant surge in the SP500 index's volatility from 13 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that CHA has negative skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors may need to stay invested through long periods of drawdown before expecting a recovery.

CHA has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, CHA must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than CHA.

Based on your interest in CHA you may find it interesting to know that NFEC and NIHD have both shown remarkable performance this year and deserve to be on every investors' watchlist.
