VIX is an esoteric asset class. What are you owning, and do you understand it? Very few people do. Priced off the options pricing of the S&P, and futures pricing. Be very careful, and manage your position size very diligently. It's a hedging/trading vehicle, so not for the long term. It's like owning a dividend stock, but you're the one who pays 5% every quarter to maintain that position. Remember, vol always ends in zero. Most should steer clear.

Play on the VIX. People buy the VIX as protection when they think a correction's going to happen. It's a trading instrument. Problem is your money's stuck if the correction doesn't happen right away. Instead, reduce your equities or sell some calls.

During extremely volatile periods it can rally massively, however in the long run you are going to lose significant amounts of value. It works great when you buy it and then the markets go down. He does not recommend it except for the most extreme professional market timers.

He thinks this could soar if stock values go down. The VIX ETF for market volatility is suggesting investors think this market is going up forever. This is a contrarian trade. Do not hold this for a year, it is a trade.

It seems not to track the VIX. It does not track the VIX, but holds the VIX futures contracts 2 months out. Every month you lose 5 to 10% due to the leverage and rolling over futures contracts. You can’t sit with these for a long period of time. Hold for a couple of days max for an event that might be asymmetrical.

Levered ETFs are not built to be held. They are day trading vehicles. Don’t bet on the market going down with this one because you have to get the timing right.

He does not advocate individual investors playing the volatility index because it is a short term play. Don’t play the leveraged ones. When VIX gests above its own 50 day average and the market violates it. You can expect some follow through selling and a spike in volatility so you can add then to help with hedging.

This is a hedge, insurance against the market going down. He has a 5% position. The VIX is at the bottom of a very long term trading range. The markets are too settled in and too happy. If the market starts to sell off, the VIX will spike aggressively. In a worst case scenario it has a 2 to 1 reward to risk ratio.

In Canada, HUV-T gives single exposure to the VIX. And there are tons of them in the US. It is a good way to play the VIX index.

You have to be pretty nimble to make money on this kind of thing. You have to be right and you have to be right in a very short period of time. Even though you can be right over time, if you are not right over consecutive days, you still might not win on the strategy. If you are expecting volatility, you can sell Calls, buy Puts, put on a Futures Contract, or just Sell and lighten up instead.

The VIX is a very difficult measure to predict. It is extremely volatile. The VIX historically in Sept/Oct tends to move up about 15% over those 2 months. Going into Nov/Dec, the VIX tends to fall by about that same amount. He would probably tend to Short this through Nov/Dec. His suspicion is that markets will calm down and this should come off a bit.

2 reasons you might want to hold this. If you believe the market will be volatile over the next month or two, the VIX (Chicago Board Options Exchange Market Volatility Index) helps offset the rest of the stocks you might hold because it profits by volatility. Chart shows a perfect little neck line break. He sold his holdings this morning as the market may be a little oversold and this a little overbought. There will possibly be a little pullback and he will probably Buy it back again in the next week or so.
