Which Is More Technically Impressive: VIX or XIV (Inverse ETF)?

NASDAQ:XIV   CREDIT SUISSE AG - VELOCITYSHARES DAILY INVERSE VIX SHORT TERM ETN
55 1 2
Theoretically they should be mirrors of each other; in practical terms, the VIX             and XIV             do not move in lock step in opposite directions. That being said, which has the more convincing technicals?
Wouldn't inverse Vix be an ETF based on futures contracts? And Vix be the actual calculation of volatility? It seems like comparing apples to oranges in some sense. I look at VIX and VXV indexes now. Short term and long term volatility. When VIX/VXV is greater than 1 the market is being irrational. Here is my chart: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/sg5W5NCk/

As always, thanks for your great videos by you and DailyFX on YouTube. You are one of the best.
