Finding ProShares Intraday Values (IOPVS/IIVS)

  • What Are Intraday Values?

    An ETF's intraday value (also abbreviated as IOPV or IIV1) is an estimated fair value of its holdings based on the most recent prices of its underlying securities and other assets. Intraday values are typically updated every 15 seconds and should closely approximate the net asset value (NAV) of an ETF throughout the trading day. ETF intraday values are calculated by an exchange (e.g., the NYSE Arca) and are distributed through quote services.

  • Obtaining Intraday Values

    ETFs have separate ticker symbols for their intraday values (usually, it’s the ticker with ".IV" added as an extension). In addition, most of the quote services that carry intraday values—not all do—require their own unique keystrokes for obtaining ETF intraday values. These keystrokes sometimes differ from the intraday value ticker.

    For example, here’s how to get intraday values (as well as closing prices and benchmark quotes) on two popular quote services, Yahoo Finance and Bloomberg terminals:
