Q2 2013 XIV / VXX Trading Results
Pretty flat this quarter, but it was mainly due to a single day loss over 10% there in April. As I’ve talked about before, there isn’t much that can be done to avoid single day drops in the XIV if they happen during reasonably stable periods so we just trust the system. We will usually catch those signals quickly and move to cash so we can avoid any further drops that sometimes follow. In this case the XIV did continue to fall another 10% but we were out of the trades by then and only felt the initial drop that first day. That’s the system doing it’s job. Participate in most but not all of the gains, and avoid most but not all of the losses.
- Quarterly trade profit is measured off closing prices from start to finish of the official quarter, where as final trade profit is calculated from open to close of the individual trades. Since trades often times remain open from one quarter to the next, small discrepancies between the two exist.
