  • ETN Showdown: Are MORL - And All mREITs - Doomed By Rising Rates? [View article]
    Looking at only the last 3 years of MORL or any MREIT may not be completely fair, since the 'temper tantrum' decimated all of them.

    While the points in your article may be correct, I am willing to bet a significant selloff will occur the minute rates go up by .25.

  • 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.

    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 Also you claimed the market had already priced in the end of QE, which judging by previous instances where QE has been withdrawn, that's not the case at all.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.
