Volatility will subside, and this leveraged etf will fall twice as fast...

There's a fundamental issue of shorting VIX : especially during market crashes - and you dont know its a crash unless you are in one!

If volatility persists - which it may very well - The continuous roll which kills these - will for once start aiding these.

Most likely will be in deep red for quite some time..... since the MF price print today was less than ideal.

In RLP this will give you serious heartburn - for CAPS - you play for the long term math

Here we go again, these stocks have a negative drag in most cases. They may spike up some more from here, but as soon as the market calms. DOWN THEY GO! Take advantage by scaling into these positions on the short side. If you are scared pick one long and short the other two to hedge as you build. The long term these go down. Just trust it and you will win.

Riding the coaster, smaller hills, still not sure if we'll end up 2-3% more down, China is a big consumer, but valuations from a US / Europe standpoint are starting to see fair. Must fall down sooner or later.

Volatility tracking index. Contango in the futures markets doom these instruments to decay towards zero over long periods of time. See UVXY for real money short.

The volatility ETF's or ETN's (TVIX, TVIZ, VXX, UVXY, CVOL, VXZ, VIIX, VIXM, VIXY, XVZ and some others) are based on VIX futures - some short term, some longer term. When volatility is high, they will spike. However, that averages around 10% of the time over the course of a year and usually doesn't last long. When volatility is low, it costs the funds a great deal to continue to roll both the short term and longer term futures. When the longer term futures reflect more volatility than the shorter term futures (which is true about 90% of the time, the resulting phenomenon is called contango - VXZ will go down even if the vix stays static. The reverse is called backwardation - but is also usually short lived.

In essence, each of these as long term investments are horrible - they WILL go to zero eventually. In fact, their design almost dictates that they do so. They are the safest short on the planet except for one thing - when the spikes in volatility occur, it is tough to maintain the shorts as the shares become extremely difficult to borrow. If one is over allocated, the margin requirements become severe. And there is a good chance that one's short can get closed out at the worst possible time.

This is not a problem in the CAPS game. Each of these will go down in the long term - GUARANTEED. When ETF's and ETN's get down into single digits, they often do a reverse split to continue trading..

TVIX implemented their long awaited 1:10 reverse split on June 23, 2015. This follows similar 1:10 reverse splits previously executed in August 2013 and December 2012. This may not have been enough as we may very well see another one before the end of the year.

I have access to a shredder at work. If you want to do something more productive with your money than invest in this ETN, I can hook you up.

seems you can only compete with top CAPS if you short all the levered ETFs, so i'm capitulating and doing that.
