          : I balanced with dgaz today, and previously, but am weary about holding dgaz as sub $3 ng is a dangerous short IMO

                  GASZ Description
                  The ETRACS Natural Gas Futures Contango ETN is designed to capitalize on natural gas markets in a state of contango, as evidenced by an upward sloping futures curve, while minimizing the exposure to absolute changes in futures prices. The ETRACS Natural Gas Futures Contango ETN is linked to the performance of the ISE Natural Gas Futures Spread™ Index (the "Index") which through a series of investments in natural gas sub-indices, effectively provides short exposure in front month natural gas futures contracts and long exposure in mid-term natural gas futures contracts.
