Why are there no options for XIV? (inverse volatility ETF)

Discussion in 'Options' started by Newmoney24, May 5, 2013.

  1. It has a significant amount of volume - frustrated that it has no options, anyone know why?
  2. Idea I think is to use VXX options instead.
    VXX/XIV: VXX has the options.
    VXZ/ZIV: VXZ has the options.
  3. Okay but the point is that these options decay-
    I'm not too interested in getting a call option VXX seeing as how rapidly they die
  4. There are options on SVXY, that's the same as XIV.
