    • Bets on a decline in the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX -1%) have fallen to 25% of shares outstanding from a record 126% in February, according to Bloomberg. Shorting the VXX is a play on continued calm in the markets, and a bet (along with other short volatility moves) that earned plenty of coin in 2013.
    • The VIX jumped 4.4% yesterday as stocks struggled, but has closed below 15 for 24 consecutive sessions, the longest streak since about the time surrounding the start of 2014. It hasn't climbed above 18 since February even amid Russian tension and sizable selloffs in small caps and tech momentum names.
    • “The longer you go without a hurricane, the more likely it becomes for the next period,” says Mark Yusko, CIO at Morgan Creek Capital. “It’s usually around those times, when everybody is convinced nothing can happen, that something happens. Markets tend to move to extremes. Those alligator jaws don’t stay open forever. They eventually snap shut.”

    "TVIX only $6.50 above fair value," tweets a wise guy as shares in the leveraged ETN are hammered again this morning, -8.4% to $6.56, bringing the decline to 55% in less than 3 days. ETN prices can vary widely from NAV, leading to excessively high premiums when shares become dear, and then the correction when the issuer prints up more.

    Credit Suisse will restart issuance of TVIX ETN units today. It was the suspension of such last month that led to the units massive premium to NAV, much, but not all of which melted away yesterday - no doubt because the market expected today's announcement. TVIX -16% premarket.

    After a quick move higher on Tuesday's sell off, the VIX (VXX -2.6%) dives to its lowest level in a year, as calm (complacency?) reigns. John Spence notes investors cancelling insurance policies for market pullbacks by pulling cash from volatility-linked ETFs

SVXY vs. ETF Alternatives
SVXY Description
This Short ProShares ETF seeks a return that is -1x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily.
