    Shorting UVXY and Turning a Profit is Really, Really Hard

    The New York Times reported Monday that one day trader managed to turn $500,000 into $12 million over five years by shorting a leveraged VIX exchange-traded fund like the ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures (UVXY). The story combined with the fact that the CBOE Volatility Index or the VIX has been at historic lows for most of this year might make shorting VIX ETFs an enticing investment strategy, but it's very, very difficult to get it right. In a note published today, he wrote: Just for kicks, we wanted to see if it would really be possible for someone trading a simple strategy of shorting UVXY (with extremely high leverage) could have achieved these returns over the past 5 years, ignoring the borrow cost on UVXY shares.
