Proshares -0.5X SVXY Backtest






Proshares changed the leverage factor of SVXY from -1.0X to -0.5X effective February 28th, 2018.  The historical data commonly found on websites like Yahoo before that reflects the old -1.0X behavior.  This simulation shows how the -0.5X SVXY would have performed back to 2004.   The simulation data for the old -1.0X SVXY and XIV inverse funds is also included in the spreadsheet.  The data on this spreadsheet goes from March 2004 through January 5th 2021

For more on SVXY see:  How does SVXY work?

I also offer an SVXY simulation that provides open/high/low prices in addition to end-of-day prices from March 2004 through January 5th, 2020, for more on that product see:  Open / High / Low /  Close Simulations for Popular Volatility Exchange Traded Products.   This product uses my simulations to generate OHL values from 2004 to October 2013 and then uses publicly available trade data after that.
