UBS ETRACS Daily Long-Short VIX ETN
The UBS ETRACS Daily Long-Short VIX ETN (UBS XVIX) offers sophisticated investors the opportunity to capitalize on the steepness of the short end of the VIX futures curve, a strategy that is historically uncorrelated to stock market returns. The VIX futures curve is often far steeper in the near-term than in the far-term. As investors look to diversify their investment portfolios, money has poured into products that offer access to short-term VIX futures contracts, driving up contract prices significantly and further steepening the shorter end of the curve. The Underlying Index measures the return from taking a long 100% position in the S&P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures Index Excess Return with a short, or inverse, 50% position in the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index Excess Return, rebalanced daily.

(Note that ETNs, unlike ETFs, are subject to risk if the issuing bank has its credit rating lowered or enters bankruptcy.)
