Q3 2013 Return

Stocks are having a great year through nine months of 2013 which has given the XIV a nice boost and our system here at Volatility Trading Strategies has captured the bulk of the good trades while leaving out most of the bad ones.  We’re up 60% YTD.

It’s important to note though, our trading strategy is not just a winner in bull markets.  It’s also designed to catch some trades on the short side to profit from any major market declines.  That product is called the VXX and so far this year it’s only taken one trade for a single day.  That will change though going forward.  I realize some people are getting lulled into thinking that this bull market is easy money but I assure you things can turn on a dime, and we’ll be ready when they do.
