First Trust Value Line ® Equity Allocation Index Fund Switches Listing to Nasdaq Updated: 1/13/2015

New Investment Objective That Corresponds to the Nasdaq AlphaDEX(R) Total US Market Index
Nasdaq today announced that First Trust will transfer the First Trust Value Line® Equity Allocation Index Fund (Symbol: FVI) from NYSE Arca to be listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market® on or about Friday, January 9, 2015. The fund's new investment objective will seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of the Nasdaq AlphaDEX® Total US Market Index. The new fund will be referred to as the First Trust Total US Market AlphaDEX® ETF (Symbol: TUSA).
"We are excited to build our partnership with our good partners at First Trust through the transfer of the First Trust Value Line® Equity Allocation Index Fund to The Nasdaq Stock Market," said Jeffrey McCarthy, Head of ETP Listings at Nasdaq. "We will continue to provide issuers like First Trust with an end-to-end solution that provides ongoing support at every level including index licensing, listings opportunities, data offerings and trading services."
The Nasdaq AlphaDEX® Total US Market Index is designed to objectively identify and select stocks across market capitalizations (including large-cap, mid-cap and small-cap companies) that exhibit growth and value factors and appear to have the greatest potential for capital appreciation. It is a modified equal-dollar weighted index comprised of U.S. exchange-listed securities of companies with capital appreciation potential.

Welcome SLVO Updated: 4/17/2013

NASDAQ OMX is proud to welcome a new Silver ETP, the CreditSuisse Silver Shares Covered Call Exchange Traded Note (SLVO). SLVO will track to the CreditSuisse NASDAQ SilverFLOWS106 Index (QSLVO).

SLVO gives investors an opportunity to add physical silver shares to their investment portfolio through a covered call strategy. In this approach income is generated from premiums paid by call options on long positions. This ETN is similar to the CreditSuisse Gold Shares Covered Call ETN (GLDI) that launched on NASDAQ last quarter.

The SilverFLOWS106 Index can be found in the NASDAQ Dividend and Income Index Family,

The Golden Touch - Gold ETPs Turn 10 Years Old Updated: 3/28/2013

Today, March 28, 2013, is the 10th anniversary of the 1st ever Gold ETP. Since the first one debuted in 2003, Gold prices have risen 376% - an outstanding mark compared to the performance of most equities over the same period.

There are now over 50 physically backed gold ETPs in existence that trade around $2 billion per day on global exchanges. Gold ETPs have opened up the investing world in many ways: allowing investors to “own” physical gold without spreads and entry/exit charges, bringing commodity and equity markets together, and establishing uncorrelated returns.

Recently Gold ETPs have been experiencing record outflows, which has brought to market many short and leveraged Gold ETPs to help leverage the volatility. Two of these are the Boost Gold 3x Leverage Daily ETP (3GOL) and the Boost Gold 3x Short Daily ETP (3GOS), both of which track to the NASDAQ Commodity Gold Index (NQCIGCER).
