It is possible that the suspension of any further sales of these notes by UBS AG, as described above, may influence the market value of the notes and the liquidity of the market for the notes, potentially leading to insufficient supply and causing the notes to trade at a premium above their closing or intraday indicative value. As disclosed in more detail in the applicable pricing and prospectus supplements, the market value of the notes may be influenced by, among other things, supply and demand for the notes.
Investors should always consult their financial advisors and compare the intraday indicative value of the notes with the notes' then-prevailing market price before purchasing or selling these notes, especially notes with premium or discount characteristics.
"Since the intraday indicative value
of XIV on February 5, 2018 was equal to or less than 20% of the prior day's closing indicative value, an acceleration event has occurred.
Deutsche AWM believes that the limitations on issuance and sale implemented may cause an imbalance of supply and demand in the secondary market for the ETNs, which may cause the ETNs to trade at a premium or discount in relation to their intraday indicative value
As CS noted, "since the intraday indicative value
of the XIV on February 5, 2018, was equal to or less than 20% of the prior day's closing indicative value, an acceleration even has occurred." That means it will be wound down by February 21 -- 3 days after the "accelerated valuation date." This is symptomatic of the VIX/volatility-related plunge on stocks yesterday and the outgoing tide on short-volatility trades, which revealed indeed who was naked and others may be out there.
