Trading The VIX

Hi Dave,

In my opinion, these market highs are nuts. The VIX this low is nuts.

Question: what is the best way to buy the “VIX” or play it for the downturn that should be imminent?

Thanks,

James,

That is the riddle of all riddles.

In my opinion, these market highs are nuts. The VIX this low is nuts. Agreed, but we are in different times where there is wide spread indexation and a massive love affair with the dunderheads at the Central Banks. A low VIX is simply a symptom of a distorted market.

Question: what is the best way to buy the “VIX” or play it for the downturn that should be imminent? I cannot offer any insight on this. To make money trading the VIX your timing has to be impeccable. To me, it is something I simply would simply not even try.

I know that is not terribly helpful, but that is my honest thought on the subject.

Dave
