VTS Community,

Given the recent update to the VTS Tactical Volatility Strategy which now uses stock replacement through simple VXX options rather than the old XIV ETN, I thought it was time for an update to the explanation video.

There’s been two previous versions, one just voice over and the other when I first started uploading to the new YouTube channel.  Between them they have nearly 30,000 views so there’s no question volatility investing has caught the interest of quite a few investors out there.  Being one of the earlier movers in this space perhaps I had a little something to do with that.  I’ve been talking about the XIV specifically in my articles and videos since about 2011 so it’s been a very big part of my life and my business for the better part of 7 years.  It was sad to see it die but now that it’s gone, a few updates need to be done.

Most of you will probably already have seen a version of this but if you’re interested in a refresher course you can check it out down below.   Remember it also pairs with the 2 part video on stock replacement so here’s the full series.
