    Why is ZIV the hedge for MYRS? I would think when the equity assets fail, you’d want to be long volatility not short. Why not put #CASH as the hedge and VXX or TVIX in the equities section?


    The hedge in MYRS is TMF the 3x leveraged Treasury ETF. ZIV is an equity like ETF and goes up and down with the market. Long volatility is in fact a very good hedge, but it can not be used as a permanent hedge as it looses value 95% of the time because of premium decay. You really have to time such a hedge manually.
