Volatility Picks up and Markets Turn Read for Once: Hold VXX or XIV?
9 november

Stock markets may have fallen ~ 1% in the US but the volatility and price swings in the options market is bigger. Coincidentally, Japan had a violent flash crash last night but recovered. This is the second night in a row futures looked wild after-hours.

VXX:

$VXX, IPATH S&P 500 VIX SHORT-TERM FUTURES ETN DUE 1/30/2019 / H1

Volatility shows some life, above, but did not hold.

XIV is the way to go:

$XIV, VELOCITYSHARES DAILY INVERSE VIX SHORT TERM ETN / H1

In tech, AMD's breakdown from $14-15 to $11-12 is scaring semitech investors:

$AMD, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. / H1

Intel could fail to break $50:

$INTC, Intel Corporation / H1

If anything, hold only Apple. Avoid speculative companies like Tesla:

$AAPL, Apple Inc. / H1

TSLA:




$TSLA, Tesla Motors, Inc. / H1

Agree or disagree? Volatility is absent. Hold XIV.

Avoid VXX. Avoid tech (although AMD, INTC is a buy on the big dip).
