DZZ Factset Analytics Insight
DZZ is a geared inverse ETN promising -2x the daily return of an optimized gold index—wherein gold futures contracts are chosen with an eye to beating contango. DZZ is designed to be used as a tactical tool, not as a buy-and-hold investment. Anyone holding the note for longer than a day will be subject to the effects of compounding, which can cause the realized performance to drift greatly from its -2x exposure over longer holding periods. Therefore, traders and investors with longer timelines will need to rebalance their positions to maintain the -2x multiple. Tactical tools like DZZ work best when they're liquid. Unfortunately, DZZ can be difficult to trade; volume is not very deep and spreads are often sizeable. The fund charges a reasonable fee for the leveraged ETN space, though obviously most investors won't be holding onto the ETN long enough to realize significant holding costs.
