ProShares TYTE and WYDE Begin Trading Thursday

KANSAS CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BATS Global Markets (BATS), a leading operator of securities markets in the U.S. and Europe, today announced that the ProShares CDS North American HY Credit ETF (BATS: TYTE) and the ProShares CDS Short North American HY Credit ETF (BATS: WYDE) begin trading today on BATS Exchange.

The additions give ProShares, a premier provider of alternative exchange-traded funds, a total of seven ETF listings on BATS Exchange. The new ProShares ETFs seek to provide long or short exposure to the credit of North American high yield debt issuers.
