by many of you who grasp the nature of these instruments in much more depth than I do but I need a refresher. Isn't XIV a screaming buy at this time? (obviously it isn't or its price wouldn't be scraping high 4's). Ican't short because I'm trading within a ROTH and I know most of you prefer to short VXX rather than buy XIV long. Why? Is there a simplistic answer or is the answer a work in progress for everyone?
