Options now available on volatility ETNs VIXY & VIXM

ProShares’ competitors to Barclays’ VXX and VXZ now have options available on them. With VIXY’s and VIXM’s average daily volumes of 50K and 10K respectively it seems premature, but I guess if you are going to compete with the market leader you need all the pieces. It will be interesting to see how wide the bid/ask spreads will be on these options.
