    More on the top 3 ETF gainers in the non-leveraged category:

  • The S&P 500 VIX ShortTerm Futures Index TR is designed to provide access to equity market volatility through CBOE Volatility Index (the VIX Index) futures. Specifically the S&P 500 VIX ShortTerm Futures Index TR offers exposure to a daily rolling long position in the first and second month VIX futures contracts and reflects the implied volatility of the S&P 500 Index at various points along the volatility forward curve. The index futures roll continuously throughout each month from the first month VIX futures contract into the second month VIX futures contract. A direct investment in VIX (commonly referred to as spot VIX) is not possible. The S&P 500 VIX ShortTerm Futures Index TR holds VIX futures contracts which could involve roll costs and exhibit different risk and return characteristics. Investments offering volatility exposure can have various uses within a portfolio including hedging directional or arbitrage strategies and are typically short or mediumterm in nature.
  • ProShares VIX Short-Term Futures (VIXY) seeks investment results, before fees and expenses, that track the performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a widely followed measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500. Since the VIX is not directly investable S&P 500 volatility exposure is often achieved through VIX futures. Each of the VIX futures indexes measures the movements of a combination of VIX futures and is designed to track changes in the expectation for VIX over a specific time window in the future. As a result the S&P 500 VIX ShortTerm Futures Index and VIXY can be expected to perform differently than the VIX.

  • ProShares VIX Mid-Term Futures ETF (VIXM) seeks investment results, before fees and expenses, that track the performance of the S&P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures Index. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a widely followed measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500. Since the VIX is not directly investable S&P 500 volatility exposure is often achieved through VIX futures. Each of the VIX futures indexes measures the movements of a combination of VIX futures and is designed to track changes in the expectation for VIX over a specific time window in the future. As a result the S&P 500 VIX MidTerm Futures Index and VIXM can be expected to perform differently than the VIX.
