Coming Soon: Volatility ETF Strategy
As I occasionally talk about on the blog, I’ve been successfully trading volatility ETFs like VXX and XIV for going on two years now, and about 9 months ago I began tracking my returns in a standalone account (see my verifiable performance).
I had intended to open up the strategy to subscribers last week, but it seems Interactive Brokers made a change in how they handle conditional orders (something the strategy makes heavy use of).
That’s pushed me back a few weeks as I test out a fix. Annoying yes, but better now than with new subscribers on board.
In any case, I’ve been getting a ton of inquiries as to when the strategy is going to be opened up to subscribers, so this is a heads up that it’s right around the corner.
Watch this space for updates, or send us an email and ask to be notified when we’re officially live.
This is the first strategy I’ve made publicly available since the YK Strategy. YK crushed it for over 3 years before the daily momentum/mean-reversion play petered out and I retired the model in October, 2011.
I’m happy to be able to put something out there again for readers, as always with actual real-time verifiable results, and especially trading such new and exciting products like VXX/XIV.
More to follow…
