Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that CNXM has significant negative skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that CNXM is very risky for short-term investment and can significantly underperform for long durations.

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