Hi,

It looks as if a lot of the VXX data is missing. The time series starts 2018-01-18, the inception date was January 2009.

I have seen a couple of recent threads about VXX, but I think this issue is new.

Thanks in advance!

The original VXX was created on January 29, 2009 and matured ten years later, on January 30, 2019.

VXXB, “Series B”, was created on January 19, 2018 and matures 30 years later, on January 23, 2048.

See links below.

The problem occurred when ICE changed the symbol for VXXB to VXX effective May 2, 2019. We transferred history for VXXB to VXX at that time.

Earlier history for VXX is not relevant to the current VXX. It is a different instrument that matured in January and no longer trades.

Unfortunately, even if we wanted to prepend the old VXX history to the new VXX. We couldn’t do that. There is a one-year period when both VXX and VXXB were trading in parallel.

The relationship between VXZ and VXZB is similar. VXZ is the mid-term version, VXX the short-term version.

Stephen,

Thanks for your quick response.

Could I please ask for a pragmatic solution, which is stitching together the current time series with your data for "old" VXX prior to January 2018? By the way, this is what Yahoo Finance did.

Rationale:
1. Both "old" VXX, VXXB and "new" VXX are/were issued by the same issuer. The only reason for VXXB's existence was the unfortunate 10-year maturity clause for VXX.
2. All instruments track the same index and have identical fees.
3. Over the "old" VXX/VXXB transition period, daily indicative values were perfectly in sync (please see the first chart https://sixfigureinvesting.com/2018/12/vxx-maturity-vxxb-replacement/ )

If my proposal does not work, it would be great, if you could post your prior-to-January-2018 VXX data for me to create my VXX time series starting in 2009.

It appears Yahoo Finance has chosen an arbitrary date of 5/24/2018 to prepend the old VXX data into the new VXX Symbol.

We have compared our data on VXX to other data providers similar to IQ Feed and they are handling it he same way we are, with new VXX History starting on 1/18/18.

If you would like to contact us at support@iqfeed.net with your IQ username or login ID we can enter a Customer Request to create an additional symbol with the prepend VXX history with the price history.
