  • Intraday Indicative Value (IIV)– The intraday indicative value (IIV) measures the intraday net asset value of a security, such as an exchange-traded fund (ETF) or exchanged-traded note (ETN). Supply and demand for the security can cause the security's market price to vary from the security's net asset value. The IIV provides investors information regarding the approximate value of the assets owned by the security relative to the share price of the security on an intraday basis. The IIV is updated every 15 seconds. The IIV is displayed when you request a quote for an ETF or ETN.
  • Premium/Discount– A premium or discount represents the percentage difference between the previous closing market price of an exchange-traded fund (ETF), exchange-traded note (ETN) or closed-end fund (CEF) and that security's net asset value (NAV).The security trades at a premium when the NAV of the security is below its previous close and is represented by a positive number. The security trades at a discount when the NAV of the security is above its previous close and is represented by a negative number.

This is the calculation for finding the percentage difference in the premium/discount:

((Previous close / NAV) -1)*100

The premium/discount value is displayed when you request a quote for an ETF, ETN or CEF.
