It's easier to use big market orders on VXX since there's a lot more volume there. Less slippage. Also since UVXY is leveraged, there are tighter margin restrictions. I could short 4X my account worth in VXX on an intraday basis. Not sure if I could short 2X of my account worth in UVXY due to the margin restrictions.
Heheh ya no sh()t! Im going to be charitable with it or it will be bad luck! WOW I swear "I will try to never buy this again."
I sure can't wait for this to end so I can jump in short here though. Just a little bit of a pullback in the market would be nice...
If they want it to seem realistic you have to atleast try to make it a little imperfect. Remember "Weekend at Bernies" where they have to make the dead guy look alive! They even did a better job than this market!
