    question: does anyone know the holdings of this ETF?

    what I do not understand that the actual SKF price already appeared one year ago when the banks quoted much much higher.
    I know SKF is a trading vehicle but does that mean it is an empty shell?

    • Read the prospectus & site lit. SKF et al trades credit swap agreements; closed out daily. The counterparties to the swap agreements are free to do whatever they choose to hedge their bets (gains/losses).

      This ETN (not ETF) doesn't "hold" any securities per se.

      • ok but who knows what the value is during the session? What does the price reflects? A stock is a stock but this one represents something you have no knowledge about

      • Very true - it holds unregulated USDJFN swaps with unknown counter parties with unknown credit ratings...:)

        For the OP - you can look up the current <anti> holdings of SKF by viewing IYF holdings which is based on the USDJFN index as well...

        It is a big basket of banks, credit card companies, insurers, and even futures brokers like CME
