Complacency Hits New Highs, VIX Sinks Again

Inverse Vix, XIV, is the best investment ever created–up 24% over the past two weeks. Having said that, volatility hit new lows today, as the market ripped to record highs.  This, of course, was a very predictable outcome.


Although not a fan of any of the volatility ETF products, now is a good time to hedge longs with VIX call options. We’re at a place in the VIX that has served as a bottoming congregating point for perverted VIX players. Some of their choice ETFs include UVXY, TVIX and of course VXX.
