ETF Battles: Which is the Top ETF for Skyrocketing Stock Market Volatility?

What’s your plan for dealing with soaring stock market volatility? And which ETFs are designed to benefit when volatility rockets higher?

In this episode of ETF Battles, Ron DeLegge @ETFguide referees contest between the iPath Series B S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX) and ProShares VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (VIXY). Both products are designed for traders who are bullish on volatility. But which is better?

Program judges Mike Akins with ETF Action and Meb Faber with Cambria Investment Management share their investing insights.

Each ETF is judged against the other in key categories like cost, exposure strategy, performance and a mystery category. Find out who wins the battle!
