the VOOL.DE ETF tracks the VIX poorly. I guess is because is not made from the front month contract but can we look into offering some other VIX tracking products.
Is a nice hedge to the market using the VIX… but it works IF you have a product that actually tracks it.
Any suggestions @dropbrick that are UCITS compliant and on Interactive Broker?
T212 already have this one, it’s UCITS, but you find it in justETF Germany (not justETF UK, UK don’t like too much having EUR listings in their stock exchanges):
LU0832435464 - Lyxor S&P 500 VIX Futures Enhanced Roll UCITS ETF - Acc (VOOL:XETRA)
Yeah, couldn’t find anything else either… I guess ppl in US are more spoiled for choice but other regulations.
I think the poor tracking comes from the fact they are buying later months in the curve of the futures and not the front month… makes sense to keep rolling yields low… it is what it is!

I already asked that EUR-denominated ETF (Xetra & Borsa Italiana) on July 14.
I’m asking regularly batches of EUR-denominated ETFs in advance, as T212 announced that they will add a big ETF batch in future, instead of adding isolated ETFs requests.
I’m asking batches by themes/categories and asset management firms.
Looking around, yes those WisdomTree quoted in London (VIXL and VILX) would be a great addition if they could be added.As they are available on other more expensive UK brokers.
