VIX Buy Triggered
Just in case the featured clickbait image got you here: A VIX Buy signal probably doesn’t mean what you think it means as it’s actually relative to equities, and thus inverts on the VIX. In other words a VIX Buy signal suggests higher prices in equities and a drop in implied volatility across the board. Be this as it may – one triggered yesterday and one wonders if this market could get any stranger.
And there you have it. One close > the upper Bollinger, one back inside and finally the one yesterday below it which confirms the signal. And all that in a raging bull market and gravity apparently suspended until further notice.
But don’t blame me, I just work here. Which is why my subs and I followed instructions and went long the XIV and short the VXX. My stop on the XIV was below the recent spike low and now advances to break/even. Happy happy joy joy.
Same deal on the VXX just flipped inverse – my stop now drops down to near yesterday’s open where I entered short. We even got a little spike scare higher which ought to help defend this level. No guarantees but in this crazy market being in the plus with stops at break/even is a good way to start your day.

There isn’t much going on the roster today regarding new entries but I managed to dig up a goodie for my intrepid subs:
