  1. Am I right in hearing that UVXY (and I presume VXX) get K1 treatment at Interactive Brokers and Sec. 1256 treatment at TD Ameritrade?

  4. Actually, I meant options on UVXY and VXX ...

    From what I determine, UVXY options are considered section 1256 contracts.

    They are based on a direct holding of a regulated futures contract and regulated futures contracts and non-equity options get 1256 treatment.

    I'm going to think buying and selling UVXY also gets 1256 treatment, not just the options.
