The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
