UVXY O/H/L/C Backtests


SKU: UVXY-OHLC Category:


UVXY is a 1.5X leveraged long volatility fund offered by ProShares that is based on short-term VIX futures (1st & 2nd month).  The current 1.5X leveraged version of UVXY started trading on February 28, 2018. The publicly available historical Open/High/Low/ Close data starts from October 2011 but up until February 28th 2018 reflects prices of the previous 2X leveraged version of UVXY.

This simulation provides 1.5X UVXY’s simulated open, high, low, and end-of-day closing price from March 2004 through October 2013 based on the underlying VIX futures and through the end of the most recent quarter (see this table for specific dates) using the actual traded OHLC values of the 1.5X leveraged version of UVXY. See this post for more information on how that was done. This spreadsheet also includes the simulated/actual OHLC values for the 2X UVXY product from March 2004 through February 27th, 2018
