New York Times Takes Aim At The Volatility Trade And Trading Crowd
Patrick Schlimme 9/5/2017 2:53:31 PM

Hi Seth, I am glad I found your valuable insights (after reading the NYT article) on trading short vol. I have a very similar approach (taking advantage of spikes in the VIX) and found your strategy underpinning mine. Shorting the $UVXY has made me quite some money (in fact it was the biggest money maker in my portfolio). However, I have switched to the $SVXY because it lets me sleep better: being long I cannot lose more than I invested and I don't have the problem that my broker wants the borrowed shares back (this has happened to me twice). Thanks! Will follow you here and on Twitter.

VIX-Leveraged ETPs And The 5% Contango Rule
Bill Bishop 5/1/2017 5:58:27 PM

Okay but the phrase "like instruments" may be confusing to some. I wanted to be clear that even instruments appearing to be opposites, or at least on opposite sides such as $VXX and $XIV, $UVXY and $SVXY, $ZIV and $VXZ etc. all declined in 2015.

Thank you! This article www.talkmarkets.com/.../uvxy-reverse-split-ahead-how-to-position-when-volatility-spikes offers my positioning when $UVXY or $VXX spike, usually during negative contango.

UVXY: Market Uncertainty And Telling The Untold Future
Vibrant Cosmos 3/26/2017 10:43:10 PM

Sorry hear what you had to go through as child. Very much agree the quote. You have been motivation for me to follow a methodical approach for profits, i might not be as aggressive as you are in shorting $UVXY, but am short never getting into a "called in" situation. Thanks for your posts.

VIX Trading: Even The Pros Get It Wrong
Bill Bishop 2/7/2017 3:23:37 PM

I like your system of shorting $UVXY using layering techniques and routinely taking profits. We just have to keep in mind that it did go up about 1,100% using simulated back-testing late in 2008. If you had relentlessly kept on trying to meet your margin calls, you would be hurt pretty bad. And yeah, the Twitter thing is a lesson to everyone: "Don't tweet strangers unless you are fine with them blocking you."
