    I admit I am ignorant on this. I learned wash sale last year in a stock. I paid more than I thought, because it added my losses to price. Will it happen if I trade XIV the same way? Does anyone understand what I ask. Thanks for help.

  • From The CME Trading Floor: It's Quiet... Too Quiet? Nah [View article]
    Well it did not do that in 2013, but stll in process now, SEE I know one thing is that some say past performance is know indicator for future performance. Well I tell them this. I posted what I am about to say a couple months ago, the S&P will get below $1653 below the 200 day ma. Why technicals, the 2nd time the 20 ma crossed below the 50 ma on Sept.04,2013 since the S&P went above the 200 ma on Nov.19,2012. only the 3rd time the S&P as not been below the 200 ma in a calendar year was 2013 since 1960. Also never, since 1960, has the price of the S&P not got below the closing price of the second 20 ma / 50 ma cross. I do not know what day, but this year! Simply put on Sept.04,2013 close price for S&P was $1653.08 at 20 sma / 50 sma 2nd cross and it will go below that, below the 200 day sma. Wait to buy below that

  • Was The VIX Too Low In 2013? No... [View article]
    RVijay007, I am not sure yet. I read the rule and called about it and still have not got a clear answer. XIV is an ETN and SVXY is an ETF. I will find out in the next few months I guess.

    Thanks for article,
    DOES ANYONE KNOW...
    Does anyone know of another ETF or ETN that does the exact same as XIV and SVXY?
    Symbol XIV and SVXY do the same thing and move together, which I like for swing trading, you can use both to help against the wash rule.
    Swing trading these can be good profit by compounding your gains, but I would not hold them long with out great caution, they drop fast as in 2011 and could be worst as in a 2008 situation. THANKS.
