Widely traded – but poorly understood

Since their emergence in 2009, ETFs tracking the VIX futures have become very popular. Today, the most liquid long volatility ETFs (VXX and UVXY) are among the most traded ETFs based on daily dollar trading volume.

Unfortunately, these volatility ETFs are not easy to understand. Each ETF is legally required to have a prospectus which usually spans hundreds of pages and is written by lawyers for other lawyers. This makes it hard for the average investor to trade these volatility ETFs successfully.

There are both ETN and ETF versions. Please explore our list of volatility ETFs and ETNs and focus on ETF products.
