    Help me out here. We closed at $72 today, yet my Scottrade account says we closed at $37.50. Scottrade says last price $37.50, yet all other closings on other trade sites say $72. OK so that one confusing question.

    And if in fact we did close at $72 - why the huge sell off in after hours? I don't see up opening under $65, but sure is odd with Scottrade close action and not after hour meltdown. Nothing falls this fast - for now reason.

    If you purchased this security on 2/5/2018, and were adversely affected. Call the SEC Department of Investigations and create a case. I purchased SVXY 10 minutes before the close of the market, only to find out that within the few hours after the close 80% of the value was wiped out. To me this seems like there may have been collusion, and potentially parties manipulating the value of the security only to be "made public" after the close.

    Phone number is : 202-551-6061
    Security Manager: Proshares
    Address: 7501 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda, MD 20814

    This should take you about 30 minutes, you will get a case number. My expectation is that an investigation is performed to determine if there was any manipulation or collusion with SVXY between the normal trading hours and after hours.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    SVXY prospectus

    ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to the inverse (-1x) of the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index.

    SVXY provides short exposure to the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index, which measures the returns of a portfolio of monthly VIX futures contracts with a weighted average of one month to expiration.

    Designed for knowledgeable investors who seek to profit from decreases in the expected volatility of the S&P 500 as measured by the prices of VIX futures contracts.
    Intended for short-term use; investors should actively manage and monitor their investments, as frequently as daily.
    Does not track the performance of the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) and can be expected to perform very differently from the VIX.

    This fund is not an investment company regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and is not afforded its protections. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

    This Short ProShares ETF seeks a return that is -1x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next.

    Let me repeat the last line "This Short ProShares ETF seeks a return that is -1x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next."

    Have you guys noticed the NAV reference? The closing price is ot the NAV value. You get NAV value by typing ^SVXY in yahoo

    SVXY- positive futures... wonder if 20 years from now we will all be driving super sweet hybrids. faster transportation and less restrictions between countries. digital wallets where people hold ten currency's at a time.... worldwide free wifi. less disease and poverty. better food from better sources. a better ocean and cleaner air. Night skies full of stars. Advanced virtual reality entertainment. Who Knows. but let's all pray to whichever God or entity you believe in , even luck. that the future is better than the present and the past. I have much faith that all will be fine. Fear not, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. The dollar will waver up and down but will never die. Our founding fathers and every generation after has contributed to a better future in some way. from innovation to failure, we just have to keep learning and never put too much faith in one man, but faith in all.
    Bullish

    So how many here have contacted the SEC or joining class action lawsuits over (night time crash) of SVXY?

    Breaking News - ProShare Advisors Statement on ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF doesn't fly with investment bankers nor legal experts. Sure looks like "court" time is coming sooner versus later in massive Class Action Lawsuits.

    svxy has gone up more than 8 times (%800) 2 times , once from 2011 to 2015 from $6 low to $48 another time from 2016 to 2018 from $16 to $138 , so there is a possibility history repeat again , If there is no flash crash .

    SVXY will trade going forward. Looks like XIV trades through Feb. 20 but SVXY looks like it will continue trading long term. Good sign for longs.

    As disappointing as it is that this dropped to these levels, I am at least thankful that they didn't liquidate as some were confidently saying yesterday. Realistically, once everyone is confident that SVXY will remain a trading vehicle; and margin requirements get met over the next three days; I see this trading around 15-16 area and will then begin selling calls on my position out of the money and slowly recoup my losses. I would not panic sell here, and if I had the money, I would start to buy here. Anyone buying today are new buyers, and anyone selling today, tomorrow and Thursday are washing their hands of it. Starting Wed-Thursday I think we move to 14-15. Stay calm

    IF vix average stays around 15 with no spike svxy could triple in one year xiv from 11/01/2011 to 11/01/ 2012 tripled in one year from 6 up to 19.
