What is "SSO" and UST?

Not Doc here ... but these are ETF's [ie Electronically Traded Funds] as follows:

ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO)

ProShares Ultra 7-10 Year Treasury (UST)

These Ultra ETF's double or even triple the the price movements of the S&P500 & 7-10 Year Treasury Bond.

However,I don't see where these ETF's are even relevant in Docs calculations because these ETF's have only been in existence for the past 5~8 years unless the OP is projecting for the next 30 years? (shrugs)

Best Regards,

Rich
