VXX FactSet Analytics Insight

VXX is among the largest and most liquidexcellent trading volume makes VXX the trader's choice volatility ETPs, and is one of a handful that offer short-term VIX futures exposure. Two immediate caveats: 1) volatility ETPs deliver poor long-term exposure to the VIX index; and 2) volatility ETPs have a history of erasing vast sums of investor capital over holdings periods as short as a few months. Still, short-term VIX ETPs like VXX generally make better tools for tactical exposure to the VIX than midterm products (short-term means 1-month average term VIX futures). They tend to do a better job than midterm ETPs in matching the VIX statistically, but also lose more money from contango in their futures positions. VXX’s performance is basically indistinguishable from its short-term peer ETPs but its excellent trading volume makes it the trader's choice. As an ETN, VXX is backed by Barclay’s credit rather than by assets.
