  • The Beginner's Guide To Volatility: ZIV [View article]
    Nathan, thanks again for these articles, I've really enjoyed reading them. I have been waiting a very long time for a 'great' risk/reward in XIV and ZIV (I probably missed my opportunity back in January, but that's besides the point). Even though I agree with you when you say "now is not an opportune time to invest" in ZIV or XIV, when I pull up a 5 year chart on ZIV, even if you invested right before it went down 40% in 2011, long term you would still be up over 175% today. Despite the fact that we've had abnormally low volatility over the last 3 years, if you were planning on holding ZIV or 3-5 years (and adding on dips), there seems to never be a bad time to initiate a position. Am I missing something? Thanks again.

    Sure feels like this is somewhat of a top in the market (although I've been wrong before). Is it too much to ask for a legit 10% correction to get some good trading going? ;)

    Heres to hoping we get that 20% drawdown soon! It's been way to long!

  • How UVXY And SVXY Would Have Reacted In 2008 And 2011 [View article]
    Nathan: Do you think they'll ever come out with a 2x leveraged version of SVXY? That would be something!

    Itscalledcommonsense: Do you mind elaborating on the "much better tax treatment" that SVXY has rather then XIV? Thanks! =)

    Thanks Nathan! Since many people trade XIV/SVXY on these boards, I figured most people would have an easy answer on whether they have ever had to pay taxes on their gains in a Roth or traditional or if the K-1 has any importance. Thanks again for your response!

    Hey Nathan, thanks for the articles. They are very helpful! I had one question that rarely comes up on these boards. Are gains made from either SVXY or XIV tax free when made in a Roth IRA? I know SVXY issues a K-1. Is that significant at all in a tax sheltered account (or do you just ignore it)? Thanks again!

    Vreteno: I think it's statistically impossible to have bought XIV for the last 5 years and actually lost money if you've held until now. Pull up a chart on XIV for the last 5 years. Bottom left to upper right....

  • VXX: Investing (Short) In Volatility [View article]
    Feels like it. Until we get a real correction and then you'll wish you hadn't bought anytime over the last year or so...

  • XIV And High-Beta Investments In Bull Markets [View article]
    I know that XIV moves depending on the VIX futures curve and not the VIX itself, but does anyone have any idea or guess on how much XIV would have lost intra-day in the 1987 (Oct. 19th) crash where the market was down -20%? Thanks

    I don't know about your previous record but you looked pretty smart the last two days! I just hope this isn't another fake out and we'll be at new highs next month. =)

    We'll hopefully in 6 months I can congratulate you on a great prediction and close my short spy position for a profit! Percentage wise, how much downside are you predicting for this correction?
