  • Fridays Market Selloff - Armageddon Or Opportunity  [View instapost]
    Been trading XIV for several years. Have not seen such unusual activity in the volatility as has transpired in the last week. Am in uncharted territory as we speak, Seems like a new norm of a 15-17 VIX may be established for the near term. Am 100% in XIV/SVXY after adding 20% at 30.15 after hours. hope VIX does not head towards 20. Mean reversion has been my friend and hope it will return to the levels of the last several years.
    Any advice/insight?

    With contango and mean reversion in your favor, a VIX level of 19 is a strong buy signal for XIV volatility players

    XIV will continue to rise after this uncertainty. Trust to grind higher and will give +50% from these levels within 6 months. Best place to invest your money, in my estimation.

    Chris,
    sold off UVXY position today, Put all available funds in XIV at 19.4. Will continue to add to position as funds become available with XIV dropping below 20, so yes, I am putting my money where my mouth is, so to speak. Hope you are correct in your prediction, as that will be great for a long term position for both of us. Dont wait too long to start a position!! There are huge gains to be made in XIV at these levels

    Chris,
    When the vix hovered around 17 in dec, XIV held in the 19 range. I do not think that VIX will break over 18, even with the uncertainty coming up. Sequestration is already assumed to become a reality, and the next trial will be the budget, which will just be delayed as politicians love to do.
    At a 18 VIX, the XIV would hover around 20 as the contango effect since Dec will have increased the underlying value of XIV by approx 10%.
    If it starts to drop below present price, I will build position, and will be nearly all in if it nears 20

    javier, buy XIV for longer term hold. may bottom at 20 in short term, but will increase 50-100% within year. adjust stops as it increases to protect against significant drop

    raw-v,
    Just being the contrarian for the short term. VIX may stay in 17-20 range while the cliff looms. dont see any reason for huge spikes. Have been buying XIV whenever reaches 16 or lower, playing it as the bottom

    jrob,
    VIX has peaked for now. Time to exit TVIX and load up on
    XIV in low 16's to make a profit while waiting for the crisis. Maybe as soon as election night. Someone on CNBC made the pitch that either candidate winning would be bad for the market. I tend to agree and may increase long volatility on election day
