1The Investor Fee is equal to 0.55% 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 0.55% 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 value 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 ETNs
directly to the issuer, Morgan Stanley, subject to the procedures described in
the relevant prospectus.

The ETNs are not rated. 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. Morgan Stanley's senior debt credit ratings set
forth above are on negative outlook (S&P also placed Morgan Stanley's rating on
Credit Watch with negative implications on December 19, 2007).

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

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 stated principal amount
of your 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.

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

Market Vectors Currency ETNs are subject to significant risk of loss. Risks
include exposure to: single currency exchange rates; differences between the
currency forward contracts tracked by the underlying index and the official spot
rate; 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.

In addition, currency markets are subject to temporary distortions or other
disruptions due to various factors, including lack of liquidity, participation
