    What if Barclays Credit Rating was Downgraded

    Could you imagine going into a period of volatility, finally the people who believe this will rise 30-40%, and Barclay's credit rating is downgraded. Making this product even more risky and causing it to drop like a stone, erasing any Spot VIX upside?!!

    Wow I see that as being some pretty high odds actually. Again making a case for the downside...

    I just get a little passionate about this product because I have spent years doing my best to save countless individuals against the leveraged products like FAZ and FAS. However this downside risk to this product seems equal if not greater than those!!
