Me to chicken to buy FAZ...

Me to0 chicken to buy FAZ... although I sure thought about it! Good luck!

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.” ~ Robert Heinlein

OK can someone break down FAZ

OK can someone break down FAZ for me? Basically if banks go belly-up this will skyrocket right? I know it's the inverse of the Russell 1000 Financial index, but when I look at the 5 year chart and see those ridiculous highs at 2000 and even 7000 it makes me wonder, are those achievable?

By my calculations if I buy some expensive in-the-money longer dated calls (through Jan 13 or something), and we experience another banking crash and FAZ skyrockets to 1000-2000 or so I'll sitting on a mountain of cash. Is this a pipe dream or could this really go to 1000 again?
