Double Short Euro Index (DRR)

Market Vectors Currency Exchange-Traded Notes are senior, unsecured debt securities issued by Morgan Stanley that deliver exposure to the exchange rate of foreign currencies.

The Market Vectors-Double Short Euro ETN seeks to track the performance of the Double Short Euro Index (DSHRTEUR), less investor fees1.

As the Index is two-times leveraged, for every 1% weakening of the euro relative to the U.S. dollar, the level of the Index will generally increase by 2%, while for every 1% strengthening of the euro relative to the U.S. dollar, the Index will generally decrease by 2%.

Investors may trade the ETN on an exchange at market price or receive, at maturity (including upon acceleration of the ETNs) or upon early redemption2, a cash payment from the issuer based on Index performance, less investor fees1.

The performance quoted represents historical performance and is not an indication that the return on the ETN or the underlying index is more or less likely to increase or decrease at any time during the term of the ETN. Index performance does not reflect investor fees1. There can be no assurance that the future performance of the ETN or the index will result in holders of the ETN receiving a positive return on their investment. ETN returns indicate the change in last reported prices at or shortly after 4:00 pm Eastern Time expressed as a percentage from the beginning of the relevant period to the end of the relevant period and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if an investor traded at other times. Market returns do not account for brokerage commissions which will reduce actual returns. For all periods prior to May 1, 2008 (the date S&P began publication of the Index), the closing value of the Index used in this table are hypothetical values retrospectively calculated by Morgan Stanley using the same methodology as is currently employed for calculating the Index, based on historical data.

Issuer Details
ISSUER Morgan Stanley
The ETNs are not rated and offer no principal protection. Investors in the ETNs are subject to the credit risk of the issuer, Morgan Stanley, for any amounts payable on the ETNs at maturity or upon any earlier redemption. 
1The Investor Fee is equal to 0.65% times the principal amount of your ETNs, times the Index Factor, calculated on a daily basis in the following manner: The Investor Fee on the inception date will equal zero. On each subsequent calendar day until maturity or early redemption, the Investor Fee will increase by an amount equal to the 0.65% times the principal amount of your ETNs times the Index Factor on that day (or, if such day is not an index business day, the Index Factor on the immediately preceding an index business day) divided by 365. The Index Factor on any given day will be equal to the closing value of the Index on that day divided by the initial index level. The initial index level is the value of the Index on the inception date.

2Investors must make a request to redeem at least 50,000 units of the Market Vectors-Double Short Euro ETN directly to the issuer, Morgan Stanley, subject to the procedures described in the relevant prospectus.

3Intraday Indicative Values, calculated and published by Bloomberg or a successor under the ticker symbol listed on this page, are meant to approximate the intrinsic economic value of each ETN. Intraday Indicative Values are for reference purposes only; not a price or quotation, or an offer or solicitation for purchase, sale, redemption, or termination. Intraday Indicative Values do not reflect transaction costs, credit considerations, market liquidity, or bid-offer spreads. Actual trading prices of ETNs may differ from their Intraday Indicative Values.

The Market Vectors Currency ETNs are senior unsecured debt obligations of Morgan Stanley that do not pay interest or guarantee the return of principal.

The amount investors will be paid on their Market Vectors Currency ETNs at maturity or on any earlier repurchase date will depend on the index closing value of the underlying index on the applicable valuation date(s) and on the amount of investor fees that will have accumulated with respect to the Market Vectors Currency ETNs. Because the investor fees reduce the amount of payment you may receive at maturity or upon any earlier repurchase, the level of the underlying index on the applicable valuation date(s) must increase sufficiently to compensate for the deduction of the investor fees in order for you to receive at least the amount of your initial investment in the Market Vectors Currency ETNs at maturity or upon our earlier repurchase. In order to require the issuer to repurchase the Market Vectors Currency ETNs, investors must make the request with respect to at least 50,000 Market Vectors Currency ETNs. Depending on the index level on the applicable valuation date(s), investors could lose a substantial portion or even all of their investment.

If the closing indicative value of the ETNs is less than or equal to $1.00 per ETN for any index business day, the maturity date of the ETNs will be accelerated and the ETNs will return only a de minimis amount, or zero.

Market Vectors Currency ETNs can be bought and sold through your broker at any time and will be subject to brokerage commissions.

Market Vectors-Double Short Euro ETNs are subject to significant risk of loss. Risks include leveraged exposure to: single currency exchange rates; changes in the volatility of the underlying index; changes in the currency markets during hours when the Market Vectors Currency ETNs are not trading; changes in interest rate levels; government intervention in the currency markets; geopolitical conditions and economic, financial, regulatory, political, judicial or other events that affect the foreign exchange markets; and Morgan Stanley’s creditworthiness. Interest rates will also impact the level of the index, which will be adversely affected if the interest rate on euros is greater than the interest rate on U.S. dollars at any time during the term of the ETNs and this interest rate differential is not offset by movements in the spot exchange rate. In addition, the daily rebalancing of the index may dampen the positive effect on the index level of decreases in the euro’s value relative to the U.S. dollar, or it may amplify the negative impact on the index level of increases in the euro’s value relative to the U.S. dollar.

In addition, currency markets are subject to temporary distortions or other disruptions due to various factors, including lack of liquidity, participation of speculators and government regulation and intervention. As a result, the market value of the Market Vectors Currency ETNs will vary and may be less than the amount of your initial investment at any time over the term of the ETNs.

Leveraged investment strategies involve additional significant risk. Any movement in the spot exchange rate or any differential between short term interest rates will have a two times leveraged impact on the index.
