List of Inverse Vix ETFs

Updated Dec 5, 2019
Inverse VIX ETFs are the ones that attempt to provide returns which are inverse of those realized from the VIX index. Such financial products offer positive returns when the volatility goes down, and may lead to losses when the volatility goes up.
VIX (the CBOE Volatility Index) is a standard index that tracks the volatility at the market level. An inverse VIX product is the one that aims to generate returns which are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction of the volatility moves. Therefore, when the market volatility, as represented by VIX goes up by say 3 percent, the return from the inverse VIX product is expected to go down by similar 3 percent.
Though such exchange traded funds (ETF) provide a very convenient and cost-effective method to trade volatility in the reverse direction, they come with their own set of risks. In extreme cases, an invest can suffer big losses as it occurred during early February of 2018 when VIX went up by more than 100 percent, and the returns from the inverse VIX ETF went down by around 95 percent, as reported by Bloomberg. Nevertheless, inverse ETFs allow another medium of playing volatility in the market.
