Verifiable Volatility ETF Trading Results
While we’re on the subject of volatility…
My long/short trading hasn’t been doing well in this market.
That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Being transparent about trading results is a double-edged sword – great when things are going well, shite when they’re not.
What has been working very well for me over the last year, and has really begun to consume the aggressive side of my personal investing, is trading volatility ETFs (specifically VXX and XIV).
Readers know I don’t tout what I can’t demonstrate empirically – I’d go so far as to say I despise those who do – so starting next month I’ll be providing verifiable results of my vol ETF trading here at the blog.
Similar to what I’ve done with the TAA model, I’ve opened a small account at IB, separate from my personal investments, that will only trade vol ETFs without deposits, withdrawals or anything else that makes following results difficult. Account statements will be uploaded to MarketSci.com.
This isn’t something I intend to monetize, just something I want to be open and honest about before I begin talking more about trading vol ETFs here on the blog.
