ProShares Trust Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF Investment Losses

(Last Updated On: January 17, 2017)

Have you suffered losses investing in ProShares Trust Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recovery your losses by filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

According to their website, ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index.

UVXY provides leveraged exposure to the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index, which measures the returns of a portfolio of monthly VIX futures contracts with a weighted average of one month to expiration.

Unfortunately for investors, ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF is down -93.93 year to date. No surprise it was on RCM Investments’ list as one of the top 10 worst performing ETFs.

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks. An ETF holds assets such as stocks, commodities, or bonds, and trades close to its net asset value over the course of the trading day.

Many of these investments are packaged as a way for investors to avoid the volatility of the market or capture growth in a particular sector.  In reality, these structured investments are just ways for the industry to increase revenues generated from the creation, sale, and management of these products.

Financial professionals and brokerage firms have a duty to recommend only investments that are appropriate for the client based on the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, and investment objectives.

If your financial advisor has over-concentrated your assets in any sector or investment, particularly one as volatile as the ProShares Trust Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF and you suffered substantial losses, you may have a claim to recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.
