VIX Options - Keep it simple

CBOE:VIX   Volatility S&P 500 Index
This is a very simple trade. I've build a career on this one trade from when I was a stockbroker, a trading instructor, Investment pool manager, as well as for myself.

1.)I will buy calls if the price is around 12.35 - with a strike price of 13.5 and 2 months out. If it drops to 10-12 - then I'll buy more calls with the same strike price and month as previously mentioned. I'll take profit once there is a pop above 14.35 - cashing in around a 25-50 percent profit
2.)I will buy puts if the price is at 16 - Ill buy the 13.5 strike price 2 months out and if it stays above - in the 16-20 plus range- I'll buy more puts. I will wait for a pop down to under 13.5 - and usually profit anywhere between 35-125 percent.
This is definitely a" keep it simple trade", which also does not require that much money. I used it for students to build up their accounts so they can fund their forex accounts (the only other instrument I recommend trading). I also use it in my closed fund for my members as well as an additional source of revenue. Remember this is a simple trade not an investment.
Joseph T. Duffy The VP of Investments and Financial Advisor as well, claimed it was a "keep it simple stupid" play. Mr. Duffy is an expert is in the realm of investing in funds - mutual and hedge funds- in which I believe is the best thing to do (coming from a stockbroker) when investing. Questions?
