  • Thursday ETF Roundup: UNG Soars On Report, XLE Tanks On Crude's Dip [View article]
    The EIA report came out at 10:30 AM eastern time, the exact moment when UNG had a huge spike and then settled at a much higher level (as evidenced by the chart above). No fact distortion here.

  • Natural Gas ETPs Head-To-Head: GASZ Vs. UNG [View article]
    GASZ simply relies on contango in the NG futures curve to generate profits. It's like "pete123" said below, its profits come from the fact that its short roll will outweigh the losses in the long roll. NG is almost always in contango, but if that ever changed this fund could be in trouble

  • How The VIX ETN Lost 50% In 48 Hours [View article]
    While that is a logical idea, the 2X leverage on TVIX makes it extremely volatile on a day-to-day basis. Your position could be up 20% over a month period and then lose it all on a bad day or two. Your best bet with these kind of products is to use stop loss orders to ensure you don't get burned too badly.
