                          : I agree, PCXCQ.OB is bad. I have some Jan 2013 calls on it hoping it gets bought out. BTUUQ is my fav coal play - it could go up 50% to prev high.

                          : I completely agree on BTUUQ as the best; I once owned stocks in it but had to sell in May for obvious reasons.

                                        STPP is interesting. (As is FLAT, its counterpart) Memo to self: track and look at again in these ETNs future.

                                          "The iPath® US Treasury Flattener Exchange Traded Note is linked inversely to the performance of the Barclays Capital US Treasury 2Y/10Y Yield Curve Index™. The index employs a strategy that seeks to capture returns that are potentially available from a ""steepening"" or ""flattening"", as applicable, of the U.S. Treasury yield curve through a notional rolling investment in U.S. Treasury note futures contracts. The level of the index is designed to increase in response to a ""steepening"" of the yield curve and to decrease in response to a ""flattening"" of the yield curve. To accomplish this objective, the performance of the index tracks the returns of a notional investment in a weighted ""long"" position in relation to 2-year Treasury futures contracts and a weighted ""short"" position in relation to 10-year Treasury futures contracts, as traded on the Chicago Board of Trade. The iPath® US Treasury Flattener ETN employs an index multiplier that provides the investor at maturity or upon redemption a participation rate of $0.10 gain or loss per each 1.00 point decrease or increase, respectively, in the level of the index. For purposes of calculating the closing indicative note value on a given day, the index multiplier is multiplied by the daily index performance, which is added to the daily interest that accrued from a notional investment of the value of the ETN at the 28-day U.S. Treasury Bill rate, from which all applicable costs and fees are deducted.
