    Icc, yours sounds like an interesting strategy, is their a way to a proximate your futures spEads with Etfs┬┐ I suppose that it would be a disadvantage implementing with etfs due to the aforementioned decay and contango

  • Natural Gas: A Rebound To 4/MMBtu And Higher Is Not Out Of The Question [View article]
    Actually contango and decay work in your favor, if you figure out a way to short both UGAZ and DGAZ. Add to positions going against you, eventually these drop back down and you end up pocketing a gain.

  • USO: A "Double Play" On Oil [View instapost]
    Great explanations Ken.

    One question, and i'm an option newbie so it may be obvious but here it goes.

    If USO goes higher than 18, why do you keep selling the 18 calls? Why not adjust to 19 or 20 ect?

  • Natural Gas Poised For Extended Rally As Bears Have Overplayed Their Hand [View article]
    However when you are short these vehicles, you profit from that leverage induced decay.

    Example: Dgaz compare values on 10th feb. to today, still a few % off.

    But UGAZ is pretty much at those levels, so a short UGAZ position would have done better than a long DGAZ during this time period.

  • THE PLAN [View instapost]
    Rock, Thanks for your continued research and findings.

    One question I have is how does your strategy handle whipsaws? Seems like in a straight up/down environment it does great. But these last couple months have shown us that it's not always straight forward up/down.

    So first draw after 12/29 high, you go long, or do you short the recovery? What if it's a V-shaped recovery you short?

    What happens when your long, lets say you go long after 2nd draw on 1/16, just to see the market turn on 1/23. Do you just hang on at that point? Switch back?

    There's plenty of articles that explain all that. I don't believe it was in the scope of this article to educate someone completely on VIX etps.

  • It's Time To Get Long Volatility [View article]
    I think he is talking about VXX, front month contracts get sold on a daily basis and used to buy the 2nd month contracts. Front month expires in about 4 days so most of the money for VXX should be in the 2nd month

  • It's Time To Get Long Volatility [View article]
    However a position in VXX bought in May of last year, about 9 months ago, would still be the same value (as far as the close of yesterday). Therefore there's no guarantee of loosing that 60-70% per year.
