But those bets suddenly went bad this week when the market took a terrifying plunge. "They are created to achieve their stated investment objectives on a daily basis, but their performance over longer periods of time can differ significantly from their stated daily objectives", reads XIV's prospectus.

The spike in volatility does open up some attractive options market opportunities. "And it blew up in their faces".

Trading in the VelocityShares Daily Inverse VIX Short-Term ETN, ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF and VelocityShares Daily Inverse VIX Medium-Term ETN has been halted and all three products had a short-selling restriction placed on them by Nasdaq.

With that 95% drop incurred, the combined value of XIV/SVXY sat near $150 million.

The sharp rise in stock market gyrations after an extended period of calm also threatened to derail one of the most successful trading strategies over the last few years - the selling of volatility.

Credit Suisse said it would liquidate the VelocityShares note starting February 21. Credit Suisse said there would be "no material impact" to the bank.

Cerebellum GP LLC purchased a new stake in iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (NYSEARCA:VXX) in the 4th quarter, according to its most recent filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Some market analysts believe the implosion of these complex instruments, which are favored by hedge funds, may have driven the VIX higher and stocks lower than they otherwise would have been.

It proved a fitting cap to a hellacious day in markets that saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average absorb its biggest single-day point decline in history, while the VIX spiked 84%, its largest single-day increase of all time. He said it "absolutely" contributed to the market turmoil.

Market analysts from JP Morgan and Societe Generale voiced their concerns previous year that the popularity of short-VIX trades had the potential to exacerbate losses in the event that volatility returned to markets.

"It spirals", Block said.

At this point, only one thing is really clear: the market's low-volatility doldrums are over at long last, and it's only going to get more interesting from here. But those concerns may not fully explain the severity of the losses.
