The White Law Group is currently investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending complicated and high risk ETNs like VelocityShares VIX.

According to their website, these ETNs are riskier than securities that have intermediate- or long-term investment objectives, and may not be suitable for investors who plan to hold them for a period other than one day.

FINRA and the SEC have been increasing their efforts to regulate nontraditional ETFs and ETNs such as VelocityShares VIX ETNs, and to monitor the manner in which these products are marketed and sold to the investing public.
