It's not for everybody. There's a risk that volatility will spike. He's been playing the VXX in the US, a volatility ETF. You have to keep an eye on it. You protect the upside by holding something that does better in a down market.

Could this be a good strategy to hedge with out selling and triggering capital gains? These are more like day trading instruments. They are built based off a future strategy. they lose value the longer you hold them. The safest move is to own cash as a hedge.

This is why people find options are confusing. Stocks deal with total return. Volatility is risk, and that’s the options world. Predicting the volatility is as important as predicting earnings. The VIX hasn’t risen dramatically recently, even though it’s around 20%.

Putting a butterfly spread on the VIX? This spread is sometimes called the Iron Condor, and you are putting the spread on in 4 different ways. Unless you are a very, very sophisticated option trader, you might as well set your money on fire and throw it in the air. You are going to be eaten alive by the market makers.

For calls on the VIX. What ETF would you use and with what Strike Price and Call Price? There is an exchange traded note, very similar to an exchange traded fund, that is put out by Barclays iShares (VXX-N) that tracks the VIX. The challenge is that it is tracking short term VIX futures, which has been a steady downward turn on the underlying security. The reason is that you are constantly rebalancing the ETN every day based on the 1st and 2nd futures contracts on VIX, which is giving you a drag every day. This is not a long-term hold. It is a security you buy as a hedge against your portfolio. When VIX spikes, it moves 3% to 6% every single day. VXX is a very volatile instrument and a short-term one. Volatility, as an asset class, is about 6X more volatile than equities. That means you don’t need very much of this product to hedge an equity portfolio.

A compilation of the S&P 100 on the prices of front contract Calls and Puts. When market participants expect higher volatility, they are willing to pay more for the Puts. The stock market is majority natural Long, so when market participants are bullish, they are unlikely to be more for the Call. The index usually goes up when the price of Puts goes up, i.e. when people are getting nervous. It is only “implied” volatility. He wouldn’t hold this for longer than a few months, because you get eroded by the transaction costs and the rebalancing.

This is a high-stakes game and a risky one, because it is trading on volatility. If you like to gamble, you can play this, but if you are a more conservative investor, stay out.

This is down at some historical levels. We are within a breadth of that level we had seen in 2007 where it had exploded. Whether it is an investment for you or an indicator, it is a fast twitch. Graph shows it just broke down through the band a little bit to $11.36. If you go back 6-7 years, it’s very close to the $11.08 back in 2007. To invest in it, it has been a decaying instrument. He would make much of this until it got about $15.

To trade this as an investment is a really tough thing. He watches this, but only as a proxy. The thing with any of these units you have to remember is that they have an element of decay about them. There is going to be big volatility in any of these trades. Right now this is showing some upside move, but it does not stay there very long.

Doesn’t know the seasonality on this but can give you guidelines. This is based on the volatility of markets. Every time you see this spiking over 20%, that tells you the market is going through a fear phase and has a bit of a problem. This tends to give you an opportunity to be a buyer. This tends to see more volatility in the summertime, from May to October.

This is an ETF based on the volatility of the S&P 500. This is not a long-term investment. He uses this when he thinks things are getting overheated or under heated and doesn’t want to necessarily be making a directional call. Volatility has been trading at low levels for quite some time but has a nasty habit of popping up and you never really know when it happens.

This is a sentiment gauge as to the risks that investors perceive in the market. Very often it reacts to an event as opposed to forecasting an event. People have more success with this looking at this when it is at a low point in the market than as a high point. If you have any predictability with this, this is the time to use it. It will always be in a range of somewhere between $12 on the downside and $20 on the upside. It may spike above that but if it goes below $12, he would see this as an opportunity to buy.
