    Comments

    Have you read the two write ups on VXX in the value investors club? Worth a glance if you have not yet. This is a traders product not a long term hold due to significant negative roll.

    @Caa: I have not read them. But I don't see VXX as a long-term hold.

    If you read the prospectus of VXX you will see that it is rigged to go to zero. Glad to hear that you do not plan to hold long-term as your "investment" will slowly but surely erode due to the negative roll mentioned in the previous comment....

    @alexis: Well, it wouldn't be the first thing I've gotten wrong. We'll see about this in due time.
