    Symbol VXX is an i-note future to trade on market volatility.  It is up 8% today and I am long.  See my post 3 previous to this one about the market.  I added TWM today and more VXX.  Not too late to add short positions ( actual or synthetic) even with down 200.  I see this lasting days and weeks longer. 

    I am staying away from gold.  In a deflation trade, it goes lower still.

    Consult your advisor if you have one.  I am not your investment advisor remember, just a first amendment athlete

    Disclosure: long VXX, SDS, TWM, SKF

    Stocks: VXX, SDS, SKF, TWM
