Volatility investors may have interest in the little-followed CVOL which actually does a pretty good job of tracking the VIX. Unlike VXX - which tracks front-month futures on the VIX, and is destined to head to zero due to contango - CVOL tracks 3rd and 4th month futures and takes a model-dictated short position in the S&P. It's a nice product, but - for now - high expenses, low AUM, wide spreads and minimal volume likely make it "unownable," writes Oliver Ludwig.
