          DTUS Description
          "The iPath® US Treasury 2-year Bear Exchange Traded Note is linked inversely to the performance of the Barclays Capital 2Y US Treasury Futures Targeted Exposure Index™. The index seeks to produce returns that track movements in response to an increase or decrease, as applicable, in the yields available to investors purchasing 2-year U.S. Treasury notes. The level of the index is designed to increase in response to a decrease in 2-year Treasury note yields and to decrease in response to an increase in 2-year Treasury note yields. To accomplish this objective, the performance of the index tracks the returns of a notional investment in a weighted ""long"" position in relation to 2-year Treasury futures contracts, as traded on the Chicago Board of Trade. The iPath® US Treasury 2-year Bear ETN employs an index multiplier that provides the investor at maturity or upon redemption a participation rate of $0.10 gain or loss per each 1.00 point decrease or increase, respectively, in the level of the index. For purposes of calculating the closing indicative note value on a given day, the index multiplier is multiplied by the daily index performance, which is added to the daily interest that accrued from a notional investment of the value of the ETN at the 28-day U.S. Treasury Bill rate, from which all applicable costs and fees are deducted.
