Fund Description
The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a widely followed measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500. Since the VIX is not directly investable S&P 500 volatility exposure is often achieved through VIX futures. Each of the VIX futures indexes measures the movements of a combination of VIX futures and is designed to track changes in the expectation for VIX over a specific time window in the future. As a result the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index and VIXY can be expected to perform differently than the VIX.
