    I've been tracking QAI since it was launched and it's held its own thus far - key is to see how it performs during major volatility. Still too early to consider even as a trade for me, but it's one worth watching as a 'spec' IMHO.

    IndexIQ has filed for 15 new hedge fund ETFs. A couple weeks ago, their ETF, IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF, started trading. Because of its longer-term focus, it has not had very high volume. Still, it has had more volume than many other ETFs had shortly after trading started. I do not expect any of these new ETFs to have any higher volume.

    You can read the prospectus here.

    Here is a list of the ETFs IndexIQ filed for.

    * IQ CPI Inflation Tracker ETF
