  • Who Is Trading TVIX?
    Who Is Trading TVIX?

    As action in the TVIX heats up again today (up 15% on 21 million shares traded), I gave some thought to who might be trading what I called in this space over a year ago "day trading rocket fuel."

    Fortunately, we have the optionsXpress Trading Patterns feature to help answer this question.

    In the graphic below, it appears that TVIX is part of the arsenal of those who favor the high volatility products that are ideally suited to short-term trades. These include the 3x leveraged ETPs (TNA and TZA), the 2x leveraged ETP for silver (AGQ) and a handful of futures products based on the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and crude oil. Two high flying stocks are also on the list, Renren (RENN) and BroadVision (BVSN) - the latter of which just happens to be the first or second internet stock I ever purchased, some 16 years ago.

    It turns out I cannot type fast enough to keep up with market events. As I was typing this, there appeared to be another short squeeze in TVIX (see VXX Options Calm After Second Highest Volume Day Ever for details on the last one), though the markets seem to be settling back down once again.

    Finally, a quick reminder that today is the last trading day for VIX February options. VIX February futures can be traded through tomorrow's pre-market session, which runs from 8:00 - 9:15 a.m. ET. Both products settle with a special opening quotation (VIX SOQ) at the beginning of tomorrow's regular trading session

    Daily Commentary

    Our system posted a BUY CONFIRMED today. The previous SELL recommendation was issued on 03.02.2012 (12) days ago, when the stock price was 16.2900. Since then TVIX has fallen -13.65% .

    BUY-IF is confirmed by a white candlestick with a lower open and a higher close. The buying price is the previous close ( 13.715 ) according to the Rules of Confirmation.

    The recent bullish formation leading to the BUY-IF signal is confirmed today. The market is ready for a new bullish move. Though the market opened lower today, the day's activity created a white candlestick that closed above the previous close. This is a valid confirmation criterion.

    We hope that you acted quickly and already bought this stock . Your important benchmark was the previous close. You were supposed to watch the session carefully, feel its bullish tendency despite the lower opening, and go long after making sure that the prices stay over the previous close.

    If you bought, continue to hold this stock until the confirmation of the next SELL-IF signal. You are on safe grounds as long as the future prices continue to trade above the benchmark price. What to do if you did not buy? Maybe, you did not have time to follow the session or you simply delegated the delicate job of confirmation to us. Well, it is a bit late, but not too late. You may still find suitable prices for buying in the following sessions.

    The market is currently cold for short-sellers. Avoid any short sales and cover the short positions immediately if there are any.
