I posted this article on Monday, but it had a typo that I tried to fix, which deleted the post. Below is the post in full with a follow-up comment in reply to a comment left by a reader.
Re-post from Monday, November 23 2015:
My signal for tracking volatility has posted a buy signal. According to the system, you would buy on close at market on Tuesday. UVXY is a more efficient leveraging tool than TVIX, so I am switching to that vehicle.
Alternatively, you could buy options on VXX. Even though these signals are relatively short, you want to choose later month options to avoid theta decay eating into your profits. UVXY's later month options tend to have large spreads, so they are not ideal.
I will post the buy price at the end of the day.
Disclosure: I am/we are long UVXY.
