A few weeks ago I introduced a new IV related trading system which I call VIXEN. While beta testing the signals over the past few weeks I accidentally left the subscription product on my signup page and a few eager beavers managed to sneak in. So I thought I may as well follow up with a post that focuses on the actual process of how to trade VIXEN as a subscriber and in particular as a retail trader.
As you may recall I badly injured by lower back last weekend and fortunately I was able to snag an appointment with a trauma specialist in an hour from now. This by the way was no small feat as here in Spain everyone is just coming back from their traditional month long August vacations (no joke). There doctor’s appointments are extremely hard to get by, especially with anyone worth their salt.
Yesterday was one of the scariest days of my life. I somehow managed to pull my lower back again – it’s been a chronic ailment that has intermittently affected me over the past 27 years. It usually goes away after a day or two of rest, ice, and pain killers. So business as usual, right? Take it easy for a bit and then get on with life. Yup, until yesterday that is.
Interesting how both the ECB and Fed minutes over the past 24 hours made references to the U.S. ‘trade war’, and I should point out that at least for the ECB increasing worries are more than justified. The U.S. economy is now growing at an annual rate of 4% plus and heck – we’re just getting warmed up. Meanwhile Heiko Maas, Germany’s foreign minister, has gone on record demanding an alternative to the U.S. dominated SWIFT system (which is actually headquartered near Brussels, but alas).
