VTS Tactical Volatility Strategy
Investing in volatility ETPs is very exciting and potentially very profitable. But without a proven risk management strategy, it's just asking for trouble. Let me explain mine.
Introducing the VTS Tactical Volatility Strategy -->
Includes all idle cash held, this is total portfolio return
Includes all trade fees
Simulated performance on a hypothetical 25,000$ account
* No leverage is ever used, but it will require options trading approval
(lowest level should be adequate since it's just long puts and calls)
* Due to the termination of the XIV, in 2018 this strategy began using VXX put and call options instead of the ETPs as before, but the signals are all the same
Statistics from January 2012 through April 2020
* Feel free to contact me with follow up questions
Here's a short 2-part video series on stock replacement with VXX Options
