since Nov’2016, Every strategy works, every strategy is profitable, and every strategy is using a “secret” money management. Until you are against the trend. My pt is none of these HOT system now had been thru the test.
I mean if you HOLD $XIV since nov’16, just buy and hold you are up 181%!
how much “special” algo or skills is involve when all the top system is trading and long $XIV or is short $VXX/$UVXY. Technically speaking, all these vix strategy is under performing, I don’t see many of them being up 181% this year.
in regarding market timing, there is NO market timing in 2017. just buy the dip in SPY or short the spike in vix in 2017 you have never lost money. last time I remember the market was like this was 2013. Short $uvxy on every spike I made 5-10% the next day. but that didn’t work out so well 2014 thru 2016. We had vix spikes that will bankrupt you if you just hold the positions more than 3 -4 hours.
I not here to knock on these strategies, just keep seeing these post on the forum how great these new strategies are, when none of them were around before Nov 2016 and they haven’t been tested.
