VIX etf?

Discussion in 'ETFs' started by paperboy, Apr 11, 2009.

  1. Do you know if there are any VIX etf´s?
  2. Not an ETF, an ETN: Ticker VXX
  3. Depending on what you want to do, there are VIX option contracts, though be careful with them :)
  4. Thanks! :)

    VIX + 1.15
    VXX - 1.14

    Something smells.
  6. The VXX does not seem to track VIX daily close very well; at all. Even hit rate is only 85% so far. Careful.

  7. The VXX is not supposed to track VIX spot. It tracks the VIX short term futures index.
  8. True, although as evidenced under this thread it is often referenced under the idea of trying to capture VIX movements.
    Just pointed out the relationship for those who are actually trying to emulate VIX for short term trading purposes.
