    ^vxup-iv (the NAV) is up over 17%

    VXUP the ETF is up 3%

    It's like a weird closed end fund. Wish it would trade correctly, then they would have something. Methinks there are lots of folks (options and futures industry) that want to see it fail.

    Very interesting and worthwhile index based product. That index has a fairly long history too.
