Buy TVIX

TVIX offers geared exposure to VIX futures, designed to capture near-term volatility in the S&P, in an ETN wrapper with ongoing trading issues. The note is designed to deliver daily 2x exposure to short-term (average 1 month maturity) VIX futures. VIX-futures ETPs—geared or not—are emphatically tactical, designed to be held for one-two weeks. Inside that limited horizon, TVIX is an excellent way to enhance exposure to VIX futures. It trades in excellent volume, with modest spreads and good block liquidity.
