  • Volatility Outlook For September [View article]
    So I can see the whole QE end is priced in, October is a low volatility month, and holiday period is setting in is not working out so well.

    jsIRA,

    I was rooting for you, but you were dead wrong on this one. Oh well.

    Then why even say that? "We are now entering the period leading up to the holiday season. Historically the holiday season is when the markets make the most gains and also when volatility tends to be at its lowest (Christmas effect)."

    I don't get how you could claim we were entering the holiday season in August.

    Also you claimed the market had already priced in the end of QE, which judging by previous instances where QE has been withdrawn, that's not the case at all. EVERY period right after the Fed ends QE has been a volatile one.

    Right that second one, saying volatility was going to decline into the holiday season... and we weren't even in September! The only time that's true is just a couple of weeks before Christmas, I've shorted UVXY since inception and I've seen spikes in November!

    You were months early on that. That's all.

    Avi, still think we don't break down? Not looking good right now. This could be it.

    I remember your "skies are clear" article on shorting UVXY a while back (when it was around 23). When I said it was far from all clear, you derided my comments pretty strongly.

    Holiday effect does not start until December.

    Gold has taken three months to fall from about 1280 to 1210. That's 70 bucks, and it's in oversold status.

    What makes you think it can drop 4x times that amount, from oversold conditions, in 3 months?

    Yeah gotta give props specially to QP... calling out specifically a reversal was going to occur today, and that to would finish at a higher level than before.

    You don't see that often.

    Avi,

    Any ideas on why the gap down to GLD 114.5 failed to materialize? Thanks.

    Gold bounce? On this downdraft gold is not allowed to bounce, RSI, DSI, and every other indicator be dammed. Keep shorting.
