Technical analysis supporting fundamentals of the 2nd wave of virus globally, unemployment rising etc. etc.
- Bullish supporting trendline.
- 4hr chart showing higher highs and higher lows.
- price looking likely to open at the lower trendline.
A higher low forming around the 26.00 level could be a good long trade entry to catch the next bullish...
So i've been long VIX since from 29.3.... and I am only really using it as a hedging instrument, yet a profitable one.
The economic factors which are at play due to Covid-19, but by just as much of the impact the economies of the world have suffered indicate to me that the VIX is an excellent hedging instrument in these uncertain times.
As of recent, "bad data"...
The CBOE Vix index has bounced off of the 200 daily moving average and retraced over 70% from the march 2020 highs.
Looking at the news of shares fo bankrupt companies being bought and pumped, stock indexes making all time highs whilst there is zero fundamental reasoning makes me think this bubble will burst. Maybe not right away but quite possibly we will see...
It's my opinion that the markets are acting irrationally and have regained losses very quickly when both the fundamentals and technical analysis show a more bearish view. The VIX has an inverse relationship with SPY as well as other markets. Currently at 40, but reached 80 near the end of March (24th,25th,26th). There is likely a recession coming for many...
To be taken with a pinch of salt. The theory is relatively simple. When the VIX and Gold Silver ratios get so far out of the normal range, they tend to reverse but slowly over time. This usually leads to a bull run in the GDX and Silver prices if played out similiar to 2008. I would anticipate the Gold and Silver miners and Silver to be a buy in the coming months,...
GBP Volatility is dropping off back down to the floor that is firmly set at 6.00
This has been a strong support for pound volatility for years now so buying GBP Vix at this level should provide relatively good gains from a bounce up to 16.00. It could go higher if there is new trade tensions with Europe and the Brexit saga continues
We expect an additional boost in the exchange rate. We are likely to build a double wave structure. The target price can be 42.6%. The panic atmosphere can last for a few days. But for the longer term we are more optimistic.
The CBOE’ VOLATILITY INDEX’ (VIX’) has been doing good numbers increasing over 150% in the past two weeks.
The index is now retracing but additional bullish action is expected according to what I am seeing coming from the charts.
CBOE VOLATILITY INDEX’ (VIX’) Analysis by Alan Masters
Before increasing by 150%+, the VIX’ touched a low point, which is...
The VIX is called the 'Fear Index'. That's for a good reason. In times of high volatility what do you do? People in general stay out i.e. they sell off and keep their powder dry, or look for safe havens. They fear for their money, even if they don't admit it.
As a trader you're told 'volatility is good for traders'. But really - is it? It depends on how extreme...
I like to look at potential patterns in market cycles.
The VIX has touched 9.40 three times since 1990.
December of 1993
December of 2006
June 2017 to present
What is interesting about these dates? They all precede the build up of a financial crisis of some kind.
Take December 1993, the VIX briefly touched a low of 9.31,
3 years and 7 months later the...
A more cautious tone is appearing across global equity markets.
Further gains to prove increasingly difficult to maintain.
China poised to break higher?
Global equity markets remain in their dominant bull trends.
Investor portfolios are overweight and investor sentiment is positive.
However, warning signals are now appearing, suggesting further gains are...
There are further signs of bullish trend development in the VIX.
Prices are now trading above congestion around 15.00 as momentum studies post positive divergence and continue to strengthen. The proprietary Tension Indicator (not shown) is also improving.
In the coming months, expectations are for higher levels to attract, with focus turning to congestion around...
This is not a cry to long VIX by any means, but it seems we are off the lows having had the lowest implied volatility in the first quarter of 2017 EVER recorded. Realized volatility was the lowest in 40 years.
What is does tell us though is that the rally is fading, uncertainty growing, and the key level to watch is the fresh low set by the S&P500 week before last.
The VIX is showing signs of stabilisation within the November 2016 bear trend as bearish stochastics and momentum studies continue to unwind.
Strengthening in the Tension Indicator (not shown) also suggests improvement, with further downside risks expected to remain limited. A break below psychological support at 10.00 cannot be ruled out, but further supports...
