hey john, now scottrate has shares to short UVXY, right now, but they don't have shares of XIV, ti short! what does that tell me? easy, any idiot shorting UVXY at these levels is out of the mind. not a good risk/reward set up IMO. G/L. you can almost trade based on what short products scottrade doesn't have available, UVXY plenty, means don't short here. XIV, none available so a GOOD short at these levels IMO. i see UVXY made another all time low? wow.
