    What justified 4.3% drop in $PHDG with no corresponding drop in VQT?

        $PHDG and $VQT better than $TRSK and $SPXH to hedge volatility spikes: proof this week.

            $TRSK....less contango drag and more upside than $VQT,$PHDG.

                        $PHDG and $VQT have the same hedging power as shorting $SPY or buying $SH in bear markets and add more gains in bull markets.

                          PHDG Description
                          The PowerShares S&P 500® Downside Hedged Portfolio (the Fund) is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF) that seeks to achieve positive total returns in rising or falling markets that are not directly correlated to broad equity or fixed-income market returns. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by using a quantitative, rules-based strategy designed to provide returns that correspond to the performance of the S&P 500® Dynamic VEQTOR Index (the Index). The Index provides investors with broad equity market exposure with an implied volatility hedge by dynamically allocating between equity, volatility and cash. The index allows investors to receive exposure to the equity and volatility of the S&P 500 Index in a dynamic framework.
